Intro: 3D Printed Horn Speaker
This is a simple, but great sounding speaker.
In the cross section you can see there's an integrated port designed for the specific speaker used in this build.
Here are the components you'll need to put this together.

Step 1: Print the Speaker Housing and the Stand
The speaker housing is designed to be printed on a desktop FDM printer. (I used an Ultimaker2 with PLA filament)
The legs are harder to print, but not impossible. With support material, you can print it on an FDM printer with variable results. (I used an Objet Connex 500 with Vera White)
Step 2: Assemble the Parts
First, you'll want to attach the wire to the binding posts. You can solder the wire directly to the post or use terminals to clip them on.
Once you have the binding post attached to wire, you can carefully assemble the binding post into the 3D printed housing. You'll want a pliers with a long reach to get to the nut at the bottom of the speaker to screw the binding post.
Next, attach the wire to the speaker.
And finally, screw the parts together with the M4 screws.
That's it! Pretty simple.
