Introduction: Converted Car Subwoofer for In-Home Use With IPod/Home Entertainment PC

Picture of Converted Car Subwoofer for In-Home Use With IPod/Home Entertainment PC

I designed and built a custom subwoofer box to house some extra car audio components I had laying around. 

I am planning to post a full Instructable tutorial.

For now, here are some photos of the process and final results.

What type of amp is that? I can see its a 240w but can't read the brand name from the pic. Great lil set up by the way! U did a great job building the box.

I really do love it. I think It would look cooler if it looked more 'home theatery'. The lights are a little bright too :P

if its just a sub, then you wouldn't get much out of it without a mids and tweeter speakers along with it

This is true. However, I am using this with my PC home theater system and am able to output the sound signal through HDMI and the 3.5 jack simultaneously - the sub just adds a bit of kick. Also, the amp and crossover can filter the signal from high, to mid, to low, if I were to use this with ONLY the iPod (the quality is not as good as with mids and tweeters of course).
