This was just a try of a passive speaker for my daugther’s Ipod.
I visited many sites to find inspiration and eventually came out with this “horn loaded” configuration, that is easy to obtain on the bandsaw.
To verify the results I used a piece of soft wood. To maintain the grain I cut the sides as for bandsaw boxes but next time i’ll use three different timber to simplify the assembly.
It gain a lot of volume even tough the timbre is altered.
A good active speaker is not comparable but is better than its speaker alone.
Thanks for watching

Nice design. Looks good and I bet it sounds good too.

I may try this on some of the Smartphone Stands I’ve been making. A friend suggested I try doing something like what you are doing.
