How to Hide a Sub in Plain Sight

Let’s be honest with Audio there is typically a certain amount of WAF (wife acceptance factor) that needs to be considered. And typically subwoofers are the least accepted component of a home theater or stereo. They are just ugly boxes that sit in the corner and make loud booms aka bass. But what if we could take that same subwoofer and make it not only a central part of your home theater, but also a central part of your home décor? That is exactly, what I choose to do.


The Klipsch KL-650 THX Ultra II were iconic in the Home Theater Industry. It was one of the first times I remember that you could affordably buy speakers that were truly designed for a small movie theater, for your own home theater. However, when I say affordably, they still cost around $$3500 for a pair! And for the entire system…a cool $13,000! And although, for movie theater speakers, that isn’t crazy, it is still a lot more than I want to spend on my Home Theater. And truthfully, I think that is the same as most other people. SO why not build some, for a lot cheaper.

How to Make a Completely Waterproof Speaker

Just like most people I enjoy spending some time outside during the summer.  In particular, I like to spend it close to water.  Sometimes, I might be fishing, tubing down the river, hanging out on the beach or even swimming.  The problem with that, is I also like to listen to music.  But really, thereContinue reading “How to Make a Completely Waterproof Speaker”
