This past year hasn’t been real good to me, but I did manage to squeeze a few projects in. Here are the results.

The plans came from here,

With a little knowledge and skill I think that anyone can build it….

I haven’t built the rest of the set because I already have pretty decent surrounds on my home theater.

Glad to see you got these posted. I keep forgetting to ask you to let me see them (or hear them) the couple of times I’ve been over to your place.
I can’t tell from the photo. In the first one, what kind of finish did you use. Or is it carpeted?
If it’s carpeted, how did you apply it to the wood?

Also, I notice the game controller on it. Do you have this hooked up with your game system?

That is way cool. much better than a store bought one I would think

The only thing that concerns me is that the port needs to be tuned to a certain frequency. You cannot just bore a hole in the inclosure… Maybe you did and it doesn’t show in the pics?

childress, the enclosure is ported, I used 3” pvc with a 90 degree bend, I believe the overall length was 21-25”. It is tuned pretty low. If you look at the link in the above post the guy who designed it had that detailed, sorry I didn’t get a picture of it.

William, I used the leftover formica laminate from the table saw workstation on the enclosure. It has some sharp, crisp edges, and it’s durable. I have it hidden between a bookcase and my loveseat in the living room.

Superdav, I have not angered the geezer tribunal that surrounds my house, maybe they can’t hear it? I did show it to the two fellows you met and they both really liked the design.

Woodworking meets electronics, and the result is sound perfection! Thanks for posting!

I should have recognized that since I look at that same color pattern every time I rip a board.

I’ve looked through that whole website and cannot see any specs on the subwoofer. I must be totally missing it somehow. Not that I doubt you, I just want to read more about it…

Do a google search for Swope HT, there are some posts on several forums that give more detail….

I thought they were on that site, you’ll have to forgive me, I built this sometime before last summer.
