I buillt this bench a couple of years ago to serve as an outdoor subwoofer for our backyard drive in.
It overexceded my expectations when running dolby digital in 5.1. It has survived 2 years out in the elements and it still looks, and works great…

That’s badass. Is it an MDF core? how is it powered?

Unreal, I like the concept. Not an outdoor entertainer here in Alaska…....but for that matter, don’t do much indoor entertaining either…....maybe ought to put some woofers under my workbench, huh?

Based on your bench and your grill, I think we’d be great friends. :) Cool idea!

Based on the bottles I see in the last picture, I think we’d be great friends.

Kevin, Great job. I was ready to grab the steaks and head over, but then I see you live in Michigan. (probably shoveling snow by now.) LOL. That was a great idea for the sub woofer. Very nice. Welcome to LJ’s and thanks for sharing.

More than just good looks. I like it!

I would have to agree with Will’s comment but would also add the bottles in the window the the list of why we’d be great friends. =)

That is a very cool bench.

When I saw the first photo I thought it was a hope chest. My second thought was that it looks very much like a toy box I built for the kids years ago… I wonder what ever happened to that?

Good job. I wish I had a sound system that needed subwoofer’s like that.

Kevin, what is the wood the stiles, rails and top are made from? Alder?

Wow! I love it…your own drive in. But I thought you just needed a tiny speaker to hang in the car window? :-)
