This is an AC Bluetooth portable speaker.
My goals were to have a portable Bluetooth speaker for my garage shop, and vacation poolside. It was to have a finished wood cabinet, with no end grain exposed using stable plywood, and solid mahogany. Also, light weight, and good SQ.
After much review, I based the design on the C-Note kit offered here.
1/2” Mahogany plywood surfaces with solid mahogany to accommodate sealing end grain, and rounding edges. Grill retained with imbedded magnets.
Plywood surfaces and mahogany strips are all splined and glued together providing self alignment during assembly, and secure joints.
Tips & Tricks:
This concept could be used to combine most any existing speaker kit. The C-Note was selected because of its combined size to SQ.
My signal generator produced audible sound starting at 20hz to beyond anything I am capable of hearing. SQ was accomplished, as well as portability. The cabinet construction process was particularly fun for me.
