I saw this today and thought it was worth sharing. Can't get much more budget than that!

LOL! Reminds me of when I was a kid building speakers out of my shoe boxes. I would take speakers out of different electronics and "mount" them into cardboard shoe boxes. I remember showing my friends how much better speakers sounded inside a box vs. outside it.

When I was 16, I made a sub enclosure from the cardboard box my $25 radio shack 15" woofer came in.

It sounded sooo good, until I went past the first click on the volume knob.. dissapointed.

i have tried this and it doesn't work.


cardboard has almost no effect - it's almost like hanging drivers in the open air.


the thinnest cabinet that has SOME sort of effect is found in JBL EON 1500 speakers. it flexes SO MUCH in operation ( if you put hand on the side of it ) that it is somewhat surprising that it produces ANY bass. but it does.


perhaps it produces only 1/2 as much bass as a proper cabinet would have produced but then it also weighs half as much as a proper speaker so it's a fair trade off considering it still produces all of the mids and heighs and you can always add a subwoofer to it.


that JBL cabinet is about 3 millimeter thick polypropylene. it consists of two parts which are simply screwed together with a foam gasket - no glue ! now that speaker truly is the most budget speaker that actually works - it still runs $400 though.
