I made this set of speaker cabinets for a friend a while back and have made several others. Will be Building another set soon so I figured why not document how to build beautiful speaker cabinets likes these. A little information on this set…This is using the following speaker parts kit, which I highly recommend. The speaker design is Zaph Audio’s SR71 speaker which sounds as good or better than many $2000 pairs of speakers.
The How to will walk through the following processes.
Building Speaker boxes out of 3/4″ MDF panels
Cutting accurate recessed holes for the speaker drivers so that they are flush mounted
Applying wood veneer with a DIY vacuum press
Trimming veneer and repairing chips
Applying finish and wiring up speakers for use.
Pictured below is another set of speaker cabinets that I built for a pair of Zaph audio BAMTM speakers which I also highly recommend. Zaph audio designs are very complete and not lacking in any way. They are a great way to get into DIY audio and make sure that your projects turn out right the first time. If you haven’t been to his site I strongly suggest that you go read through all of the articles packed with information featured on his site.
