  • Those are NOT IN ANY WAY cheap speakers, lest anyone be mistaken. € 74,95 for one subwoofer, € 15,95 for one full-range, so a total of € 90,90 per speaker or € 181,80 for two units as shown in the video, and not in stock when I looked. Also also, European shipping to USA and possible Brexidiocy for anyone in England or vice versa. Alternate sourcing in USA is questionable, but they're made in Asia so _might_ be cheaper there.

  • Me: "I have some busted headphones I could use to make this. wonder how much this would cost?" *open Excel and start to plug parts into a list* *see things adding up quickly* *over $400 CAD without shipping so far* *closes Excel* "Well that was a nice dream."

    • @kcgunesq I agree. Some times the learning is the value you get. But I don't think this one is one of those projects. (Unless you have most of that stuff laying around already)

    • While I can appreciate how this might be a fun project, there isn't any way the juice is worth the squeeze for anything other than just the hobby or learning aspect.

  • Original idea and perfectly realized. The speakers have an awesome look. It is just too bad that as of 2021 everything is so small and inaccessible for an electronics engineer. But that is my gripe, not criticizing the project.

  • From a professional sound engineer:. They have killer lows and smooth mids, but the highs would be best served by a dedicated tweeter. Aesthetically they are stunning. Great job!

  • I'm curious why you decided to use an active crossover and not use a passive crossover after amplification it would have been much simpler it's literally capacitor for the high-end and an inductor for the low-end?

    Jonathan HughesJonathan Hughes19 tuntia sitten
  • This is a lovely build. The only thing I think is a negative compared to shop bought units would be the battery pack. Aside from the lack of a battery low type indicator (would the Bluetooth pairing show this on the paired device such as a mobile as the phone would see the speakers as a pair of Samsung headphones ?) - I think having to undo 8 fully tightened wood screws and use a battery charger would be a pain compared to a shop bought unit with USB recharging capability. The above isn't criticism at all, I think the build is amazing - Im just saying as I'm aware you often revisit and "upgrade" your builds - this is the only bit I would change. Is the sound volume controlled entirely by the Bluetooth connected device ?

  • Although the build sounds and looks great. The bass was not that impressive and my sub didn't reveal much of the lower range from these speakers as expected. Perhaps a better mike would help.

  • pretty cool, but listening to the differences to me your speakers sounded just a bit muted compared to the Bose unit.

  • This is excellent, thank you. NB: A slightly "less green" approach would be to buy Bluetooth transceivers, in lieu of the ear-buds.

  • I thought these would be another dodgy gimmick before watching but they're actually very well done. I'm glad you pointed out that mdf isn't airtight and needs to be sealed, I've seen far too many speakers made from raw mdf and people wonder why they sound terrible. Comparing them to Blose products isn't a fair comparison though nearly all their products are over priced rubbish.
