Tips on Making Your Own Speakers Using Birch Plywood

Vitaliya Khoruzhaya |

Finding the right sound set up is a must for any cause. Make sure the equipment fits the needs while searching for the perfect speaker to create impressive house parties or just something to deliver a little bit of jazz ambience on a Sunday evening.

You may decide to purchase speakers from shops, but the price can be a bad surprise. However, the loudspeaker is a very simple device. The key elements are the drivers, crossovers and the cabinet. The cone or dome drivers are transducers that transform the electrical signal into sound. 

Crossovers act as an electrical filter to split the signal and direct portions of the audio-frequency range to the drivers best equipped to handle them. But coaxing rich and beautiful sound out of these elements requires a bit of harmonic alchemy. 

Every decision made (from the combination of drivers and crossovers to the material used to build the speaker’s cabinet) influences the performance and character of speakers.

Building the cabinet can be the most time-consuming part of the project, but it allows to customize the look of the speakers. Ply Online reminds; the material matters.

Baltic Birch plywood possess good acoustic properties, an affordable price and stylish appearance. Birch ply is considered to be more resonant than MDF and cheaper than wood. Popular for its rich density and rigidity, Baltic birch plywood is also a great option for a speaker box because of better clarity and tone.

Besides, birch plywood is known for its durability, so this speaker box is made to last. Ply Online’s suggestion is BB Birch Plywood.

Speaker building can be an enjoyable and rewarding mix of woodworking and electronics DIY, beautiful and functional at the same time.
