  1. Speakers
    Hello everyone, I'm eager to design my own budget project, using speakers, normally found in cars and rated at 4 ohms for a home environment. I'm still doing my research and open to suggestions and new ideas, however, I have a few concerns. Because I'm from Bulgaria, my product options are...
  2. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hello. I am still in the planning stage for my theater. I'm working within a budget, so I have to stay within certain monetary limits for each component of the theater. I have been looking for a raw 12" woofer to use as a passive subwoofer for my home theater setup. I used speakerboxlite to...

    I am pretty new to understanding car audio and its differences from home audio. So, my truck's audio is quite bad. I am guessing it is to do with the stock speakers and placement of the speaker (almost the feet level, on the truck's doors). I upgraded the stock ICE to a 'Blaupunkt Cape Town...

    I have a Pioneer AVH-2330NEX in my car and it refuses to connect to Pandora over Bluetooth. It used to work, and was kind of flakey at times, but now it just refuses to connect. I believe it is an issue specifically with that app or with the Pandora source on the head unit because it will play...

    So first let me say my initial goal was to build a decent pair of speakers for under/around $40. I have reasonable expectations for this project, and I know for $30-40 there is only so much I can do, (I've done some DIY previously) but I already have an extra stereo amp, and a nice birch plank...

    Hello, I appreciate this question has been asked several times before, but I am trying to seek some more information. I understand that car subwoofer amplifiers run off of 12v from the car battery, and require high amps sustained output for operation. I was then wondering, if I bought a car...

    While most people like to listen to music, where and how they consume it varies wildly. For portable headphones users, the act of listening is personal and serves as a soundtrack to whatever they do. Hi-Fi fanatics do their listening with full-sized systems, often enjoy the company of...

    After following the DIY forum for a year now, I’ve decided to take the plunge. This was my first DIY project and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. When I saw the Stereo Integrity HT-18’s on sale, I knew this was my way in. I matched two of these woofers with the DiySoundGroup 4...

    I've been searching for a long time but cannot find a solution online, that's why i'm giving it a shot on the forum. Problem is like you can see in the picture, the song/album i'm playing isn't displayed in full because there are too many characters, so the text must be rolling over the screen...
