High WAF Entertainment Center, 18" End Table, And White Volt 6s

Just wanted to share some of the work I've done recently.

I have a special 88 to go along with my LR Maximus 12s but the wife wanted it invisible and I wanted more "rack" space so a new Entertainment Center had to be built to match the 18" End Table that was already built.

For the End Table the UM 18" sealed box from either parts express or the DS4 Sealed box from diysg slide on aluminum L brackets with felt on top. Then I lined felt at different locations to ensure no rattling occurred.




Next up was the Entertainment Center. It took a week to throw together and was pretty fun. The doors and glass turned out really nice and I love that the Special 88 is hidden!



I added fans controlled by a temperature sensor to keep things cool on the back. The panels on the back are magnetic as is the front Special 88 Grill so they come off for easy access and cable control.


After doing the Volt 10 IB Atmos In Ceiling I added some white with white grill volts 6s for surrounds to replace the old energy classics that were trying to keep up with my Maximus 12s. Hah!

Nice work. What type of stands are those holding up the volts? Do they have a flat top on them, or is it a pole mount? I need to do something similar with my volt surrounds.

Thanks. Its this mount https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000V...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I didn't want the sides on the mount and there's 2 holes so I bolted it on that way. Height and angle can be adjusted.

Thanks!

The product description says it has concealed wire management. Pretty nice stands, I think.

Yes they run inside the pole and pop out the back.

Those End Tables look familiar! Very nice execution and I love the entertainment center (definitely taking some inspiration from this for the future).

Check out my End-Table Marty Build

That's brave of you to put a speaker so close to the playpen... and with a white finish too! If I had done that, the poor speaker would have been covered in fingerprints and toppled over at least 3 times by the end of the day!

Very nice work, all of your projects are outstanding.

Actually it's for the new baby that's due today but still not here yet. My 2 year old somehow doesn't notice them or car about them.

Can you describe the fan setup a bit? What'd you use for temp control or did it come with that specific fan? Thanks!

Like the work!

My wife lost her keys about a year ago and we found it recently IN my old tower speakers, along with a spork and some other kids toy... luckily they broke the speaker when they knocked it over as the replacement keys would have been more than replacing the speaker.

Nice sub box too! Do you just have the one? I went ported and downfiring so my kids wouldn't stick their slimy hands in the huge ports...

The volts look awesome! Did you make the grill for them just like the grills you did for your Maximus - or did you buy them somewhere?

Great work!
