Step 1: Design

I have made a simple design that it is a square. the main reason for this shape is because i made them to fit into my CD Rack. Your designs can be varied and customized to suit your  needs in anyway you want. this is because this Instructable holds the key production stages of making all speaker systems.

I had to make sure that all of the sound was projected forward from the speakers. the reason for this is because you don't really want the walls dancing!!

To do this you need to design a box like shape, mine was a box.

To get rid of vibrations which create a tinny sound an insulator must be added or the design for the inside to propel the sound forward instead for absorb it.

I would like very much to build a similar set up, and can handle the
woodworking part without a problem. Not very electrically inclined can
anyone tell me where I can order a speaker kit like the one used in the
this instructable in the USA
