    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!

    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!

      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.
