Default Speaker project for kids

Here's my attempt to start addicts. These are kids from Sea Scout Ship 5750 working on a little speaker project. We had 22 youth comple these speakers. The boxes are 1.22 ft^3 and the drivers are four 4" NSB's with a Dayton Neo tweeter. The crossover is 2nd order at 4300.

It was a good project for the kids. They had a lot of fun and love the speakers.

Lot's of wood... about 1600 lbs.

The construction method was a folded miter at the top... cut the miter to 44.5 and tape the top and two sides together. glue, fold, place bottom and tack nail. We didn't have the kids on the table saw though.

They spent $30 each... oops! The cost was closer to $38.

Kudos!

I was thinking of doing something similar, but simple amplifier based, for those that were interested in my son's scout troop.

Way to go!

Well the NSB's are the Pioneer buyouts at PE http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...umber=269-568, the Dayton Neo is http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...umber=275-030. Caps are 3.3 and 4.7uF. Coils are .25 & .35mH. Al parts are PE.

Costs (in quantity)
4 NSB's with shipping $4
1 Dayton Neo $4
2 caps $3
2 inductors $3
terminal block $1
=15 x 2 speakers=$30 plus wood (2 pair from one 4' x 8' sheet)

As a bookshelf or back near a wall they do pretty well. That keeps what little bass there is from rolling back. HT stuff would be OK because you have the sub. I think they sound real nice for ~40 bucks.

Make the move over (down) this side of the border(when you're old enough!). That way you wont have the trouble again.....
