I-Phone Amplifier. A rainy day yesterday, but warm enough to head to the shop/gaarage….but, I needed a project. So, after a little research, I decide to attempt an I-phone amplifier. Four layers of oak, the front and back are 1/4 inch, the second layer is the thickness of the phone and has the sound channels going from the bottom of the phone (where the speakers are) to the “speaker” holes, and the third layer is about 1 inch thick to give depth to the 2 1/4 inch holes. The front three layers are glued up and then hole-sawed out…then the back panel is glued on. The whole box is approx. 4×9 and a bit over 2 inches thick, made from quarter sawn oak and finished with spray poly.
A buddy of mine says that there is likely an acoustic “sweet spot” with regard to materials and “speaker” size. If anyone has any info on this, I would appreciate hearing from you.
