After making a Bluetooth speaker for my oldest daughter, my middle daughter let it be known that she wanted one too.

I purchased 3 way auto speakers on amazon and used the same BT amp board as before.

Mahogany sides, BB ply back, ABS veneered plywood face plate. Miter cut corners with the grain wrapped.

Finished with 3 coats of padded shellac and 3 coats of rattle can lacquer.

Thanks for looking.

Nice one Matt. BTW, you need to try Evan Williams white label…

OBTW this speaker sounds very good. Much better than the first one. The bass it puts out is pretty darn amazing.

Another great speaker Matt! If you used the same amp (2×25W or 2×50W?), what would you attribute the better sound to? Larger box volume or different speakers? I’m getting ready to pull the trigger on making on and I’m not sure if I want the 25W or the 50W amp and I’m also debating 5 1/4” or 6 1/2” speakers.

Better speakers that have built in tweeters make the difference

I used 6.5” speakers and the 25 watt amp board

Very nice job and great grain matching. What did you use for a power supply?
