    Hey everyone, I've FINALLY finished the additional tips-and-tricks guide to go along with my dual-stereo speaker project. In it you can find full details of the crossover & smoothing circuitry, dimensions and cutouts (CNC files and also a square version that's easier to build), and extra info about some cool bluetooth receiver boards that work as a stereo pair if you don't want to go with ear buds. Enjoy!

      Hey, beautiful end result! Seriously one of the coolest DIYs I have ever seen. Do you have any input on how to modify to add a charging port, rather than removing the 18650s?

      Hey! On galaxy buds + there are 2 speakers on each side. Is there any chance it is one for bass and one for treeble? I think I will try to connect amplifiers on separate channels.

    I’m thinking to convert my Beats Solo 2 wired to wireless by reusing the bluetooth circuit of some knockoff airpods. The problem is there is not much space inside the headphones…

    Hm,i think that system of charge is no so comfortable, you need to take a BMS + 18650 mode and charge it with 12,6 V(may be another voltage) charger and also instead I-Max yo can charge accumulators 5x5 mm connector.It's not difficult and not so problematic.

    These could benefit from some polyfill inside the enclosures to remove the resonant wood sound, and a tweeter to help handle the highs, but that's likely too complex for those amps you're making use of. All in all though, the look wonderful, and are pretty smart!

    "The guide will be uploaded shortly." So that was a f***ing lie. Now I have to research what a low/high/band pass filter is. In all seriousness, this is a great idea and I am now looking into converting some old headphones into something I never would've thought of, thank you.

    1. Nakanowatari

      I think you can skip the filters he mentioned. As far as I know, all the filters does is make the speaker a bit more efficient. Even if you know what these filters are, given that he didnt give his configurations, you'll ended up having to experiment on your own. Unless you have a degree in electrical engineering, a frequency generator, and a multi-meter lying around, all you can do is look the internet for some design someone made and trust the work they did.

    You could get $4 broken earbuds, or get an actual bluetooth audio dac for the same price and connect the speakers to that, they come in many variations and versions. Also the seals between the speakers and the wooden frame is important, but only if you're going with closed back design, open back will have diminished effect on the sound, not to mention, you need to tune the eq later to get the best sound (which not a lot of people will do). Good vid for casual watching, but bad for people who actually want something usable.

    The reason cable earphone is better than wireless is the durability, no lagging and easy to use, no stupid pairing which sometimes takes more time when we really need it fast.. And after watching this, I'll buy a $40 surround speaker instead of making it from air buds.

    I think that the one's you built actually sound better they have richer and more vibrant sound then the Bose 2 did . You might be in the wrong career. You may want to rethink your main career choice, I'm not saying that you are bad at anything, this is actually the first maybe second time I've seen you, but those are some really nice and great sounding speakers their *Sick* as the kids and hip say these days I guess. Peace out.
