This really is an admirable project. Have you thought of making the book as a cover for a tablet? It would be brilliant if the folder tablet cover had slips where you could insert artwork for your favorite songs. Perhaps the app could even generate the artwork for you to print. I’m not sure how you’d link the pages to the tablet so it knows what choice you have made. Perhaps a visual code the camera could automatically read perhaps you pick the page number from a list in the screen that stays visible next to the turned pages?
Star grounding: if you have several components you can connect them to a terminal strip(s) and use links to interconnect each as required. Having screw joints instead of soldering everthing can be very handy if you need to adjust your layout as you go.There won't be any potential across a terminal strip and no risk of dry joints or excessive heat.
Thanks for the info - I'll take a look.
Thanks for your thoughts re the spikes. I ended up with the rubber and felt for a couple of reasons:•No chance of damage from vacuum cleaners bashing them.•My "research" didn't indicate it mattered what you used as long as you isolate the speakers from the floor and my floor is a concrete slab on the ground so no much chance of resonance there :)•I also wanted them finished and working for a family occasion and building the bases to fit the spikes would have added delay. I thought I would do it afterward but they sound fine as is. So if it ain't broke.... :)
Do you have links for the circuit designs you used?
Thanks for the interest in my Instructable! The local suppliers did not have veneer on paper but I'll keep it in mind. Must say the irron on version was just so easy to use I'd be tempted to go that way again if I need to. I am fortunate have the speakers connected to an NCDV amp from NewClassD which I built. It is just an incredible amp. Did some side-by-side comparisons with some friends in the business and it was happily competing with amps 4 times it's price. https://www.newclassd.com/

Oh I entered the Audio Competition so if you have a minute to cast a vote on the Competition page I'd be very grateful. :)
Good to "meet" you too :) I'll keep an eye on your FB page and see how render becomes reality!
Oh forgot to add - if you have a moment would you mind casting a vote for me in the Audio Competition page?
Thanks RedRooster! I do appreciate the feedback. Glad to hear it was appreciated :)
PS! If you have a moment would you mind voting for my Instructable in the Audio Contest?
Thanks so much for the feedback Kris. :) The ZRT's do sound incredible. I cannot believe the bottom end from drivers that look so small. I have been fortunate enough to get my hands on parts a NewClassD NCDV amplifier which I have built and together they are fantastic!Some intriguing photos - especially the curved section! Good luck with your project. I'm glad you found some of my words useful.
Hi there,Firstly what a good idea! I love a good bit of recycling.I must make one suggestion as I notice you have soldered the wiring before screwing it under the nuts on your terminals. You should be very careful because this of this practice because solder can cold creep under load which will degrade the quality of the contact and may even lead to loose wiring and arcing. When using screw terminals it is always safest to either use the wire bare or use a crimp terminal. If you must solder leave the section of the wire to be compressed by the nut solder free.
Thanks so much - I appreciate the positive comments! If you have a moment please vote for this instructable in the Audio Competition. Again appreciate the feedback.
That sounds like a fair deal :)
Thanks for the positive feedback! I have entered this Instructable in the Audio Contest so if you have a moment please vote for me :)
I just did! Thanks so much for the positive comments, if you have a moment I'd really appreciate your vote in the Audio Comp!

I notice that you have used a 2 pin power plug with no earth. That is OK if your project is double insulated. You have used a metal box to house everything so this is not double insulated. An earth is required for safety. If anybody else attempts this build please ensure you earth properly to avoid potential of injury or worse!
The only way you could improve this is to make a dining table next time! Nicely done, lotta fun :)
