Posts Tagged ‘loudspeakers’

It’s been a long time since my last post but i hope the wait was worth it. This project was a design that came to me for a high school student. My student wanted to make this to take to college, so i designed it for easy construction, cheapness and great design. I also had four high school students make one each during summer camp, they were so happy to take it home. The whole thing is based around a super cheap 8 watt stereo amplifier and an empty CD container used for the speaker stands. It looks and sounds fantastic.

After a long break from doing crafts we are now back with another wonderful project. My son Lee built a 30Watt stereo amplifier during the summer vacation and designed these speakers at school. Finally we managed to find time to complete them and the gluing of felt was a great exercise in being neat. The loudspeakers cost 10 Euro from our local electronics shop. They look, feel and sound great on his amplifier (see a post further down) We will design speaker stands for them to bring them to ear height.
