This is amazing, i was about to waste a pair of broken tws, but after seeing this I think I'll try to make it!! Only one thing: is it possible for you to make the batteries rechargeable via USB while inside the speaker? Thank you

I think i missed something... dont you have to push a button on the headphones to turn them on? I didnt see you address that switch, rather I heard you say that you will replace the battery and can add a switch? how does a switch to the battery and not the proper switch work? is it safe to assume that all headphones come on when there is a battery? without the actual on off button being pressed?.... signed "trying to understand"

I like how he says use old earbuds like it's gonna be a cheap project. Then mentioned he used a $30000 CNC machine. Lol. This would only be moderately doable by most people if they use old speaker boxes as well and just concentrated on getting the electronics all sorted out. I could probably buy a reasonably cheap used car for what it actually cost this guy.

I mean I was on board, brilliant idea.. one thing though. That was not a chamfer router bit... chamfer’s are flat. That was possibly a ‘no file’ or 1/8” round over bit... which can add a nice consistent touch. So does a bit of sand paper... cheaper and far less fussy as a bonus. for those that end up disappointed by a search for a chamfer bit looking similar to the one he mentions in this video..

Listening to this video on planar speakers.... DIY speaker sounds so muddy compared to the off the shelf. I would have added tweeters to bring out the top end. End product looks awesome though!

What a liar and jackass. A 2 inch woofer (it's NOT a fucking subwoofer) CANNOT go low, never mind "incredibly low" and it will NOT run a passive radiator etc. Stupid liar. Spend $69 and get a Klipsch bluetooth speaker.

Interesting way to recycle but just curious.. Why didn't you add a way to just charge the batteries without taking the back apart? Just wire the rechargeables upto a USB-C adapter?

@billyboi456 In the 3-cap circuit, the center one was 8.2 ohms 1% and the two side-ones were 33 ohms 1%. I didn't get "33.6" though. And all the rest of the resistors are 110 ohms 1%. So you are absolutely correct.

Can someone help me identify this resistor? i.imgur.com/Vgw2Rwa.png I think it's an 8.26 Ohm 1% but I can't tell for sure

If anyone sees a mistake or a something that seems off, let me know, I can update the diagram. I'll also see if I can finish off the whole circuit this weekend

very exquisite and very detailed. your workmanship is stellar! wish i had this stuff on hand to try this project. problem for me is the cost. all that raw material plus the buds, the speakers/sub, amps, switches, lithium batteries, and battery pack would cost me more than just buying a good brand setup, like the waterproof JBL Boombox.

Proper speaker building requires use of Thiele/Small parameters for creating the containing cabinetry. While this build will give you Mid-Fi, it will not give you HiFi. us-first.info/player/video/sLN9d5mKcaKLk2A.html I doubt these speakers can go much below 70 hz, which is my guess due to driver size and probable builders lack of regard to T/S parameters in the build. That is not in the "incredibly low" range, which is enthusiastically promised, if that is, indeed, the case. I do believe these speakers could sound better than other commercial mini speakers, but that's a low bar to surpass. With better utilization of T/S parameters, the odds are a much better product could result.
