A DIY speaker build has been something I have wanted to do for a very long time and I’ve finally crossed that off my to-do list. This build was very challenging, the design work was fairly extensive and required many small modifications after the fact (rest assured the uploaded files are the best versions), the print time was extensive and having a good low-warp material with good surface quality is key, the finishing I chose to do was excessive but I really wanted that exact look, and finally the wiring was a bit over my head initially BUT all-in-all I learned so much during this build and am really happy with and proud of the result.
Because speakers and sound quality, in general, is important to many people I want to preface that I am no speaker design expert, the opposite in fact so I cannot guarantee the design or sound is optimal, and I say that because this is a BIG project and quite expensive at that, so I don’t want anyone to put in this amount of work and be disappointed in the result. I think the speakers sound good but I am no audiophile and the speakers are brand new so not the best time to judge. I used several online calculators to help determine the speaker and crossover design so I did my due diligence on the design part as best I could. Anyway, with that out of the way here is how it was done.

Print time is roughly 160 hours for all 8 pieces @ 60 mm/s. The difficulty I would classify as intermediate for the printing and advanced for the wiring/assembly.

Thanks for taking the time to explore the project, I hope you try it and if you do I’d love to hear your feedback and see pictures of your build!
