DIY Speakers Answered

I gave up my B&W speakers that I've had since I was 16, which was a long time ago. I'm now in the market for some DIY speaker ideas. There are a bunch of speaker Instructables, but I would like to do something new and hopefully unique. Does anyone have photos of what they have built for inspiration?


I made some nice speakers I have in my room, their not real powerfull but it's got a woofer and is plenty loud enough to fill a large room with sound.

 Deadmau5 speakers!!!
that would be epic

oh god i would love those!

monster speakers rule!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

the box could be wood i built several pair of woden speaker boxs i'm not talking abot particle board (oh I hate partical board) wafer board even more. no think of musical instrements string insturments. maye a pair of speakers shaped like guitars obvious but use mahagoney wood in 38th thicknexx for the acustic proteries of this wood. no not screws glue or biscuits no nails no screws. think flat panel speakers too no need for ams just your celly silly.

These fiberglass "snail cabs" are pretty sweet...


I wonder, could a RepRap (or something similar) be used to make crazy speaker enclosures that would be otherwise impossible to build? 

No idea. I guess that would depend on the density of the 3D printing media...

I'd love to see a more detailed how-to on these speakers.  The design and construction borders on masochistic, but it sure looks nice!

Nice, eh?  I'd consider doing something like it myself, but I don't think I'd make it exactly the same way.  Maybe I'd cut individual segments for the curved parts and then cover them with steamed 1/8" plywood to get a smooth curve.

 People might be able to also give suggestions if you give us a hint as to what your speakers are for? where they are going etc?
