Very DIY :) Looks fun. How does it sound?

Sounds almost exactly like the JVC FS-7000, which is what I used as a model for sizing and porting the speaker cabinets. A pair of 3" fullranges obviously don't have a lot of low end, but positioned on a bookshelf, about 5" from the back wall, and with bass boost enabled, it's quite nice for its size. Kinda like a SoundDock with actual stereo separation :)

Hi Chicks ... welcome to the forum.

Nice work. What is the wood from a cutting board? It looks great. Also, what did you use for the speaker grill?

Cheers,
Gio

The wood is all bamboo - these bamboo cutting boards are very easy to find at the clearance stores my wife drags me to: Tuesday Morning, TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Big Lots, etc. They're pre-finished, which saves a lot of time, just add lemon oil. The carbonized bamboo looks nicer, IMHO, than the plain.

These look like the bar boards I used, except for the price - I paid $1.99 each :) http://www.mojitocompany.com/product.ph ... ctid=16177

The sides were from a very large board made by Island Bamboo, much thinner, about 3/8" or so. Bamboo plywood is very rigid.

The grilles are fashioned from the grill of the donor system, the Psyclone Nodus. It's very easy to cut with tin snips, and easy to bend over a 1X4 block of wood.

Thanks for the lemon oil tip. I have had my eye on Bamboo cutting boards, I just have not found a good price on them ... yet! ;)

I love the sound of the little Sure board. But it does need modifications.

I am building a multi-channel amplifier with a few of these boards. I have played with a few modifications, www.justblair.co.uk has a series of articles detailing modifications to the Sure board.
