I have a living room that had a really cheap Samsung sound bar that we picked up with a gift card a few years back. But I have always wanted to design and build a soundbar from scratch. So recently I did just that.

Goal: Is to have a soundbar that sounds great and is compact for most living rooms. I also wanted it to be aesthetically pleasing. With this is mind, I wanted it about 4" in height and length 36" or shorter. I also didn't really want frequencies below 90hz, as I planned to use a separate subwoofer with it. With those design goals in mind, I started picking out the drivers.

Parts Used:

4x Dayton ND65-8 https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-nd65-8-2-1-2-aluminum-cone-full-range-driver-8-ohm--290-206
2x Dayton ND25FA-4 https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-nd25fa-4-1-soft-dome-neodymium-tweeter--275-059
Dayton 2x15 Amp (I may upgrade this, but I had this on hand) https://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-kab-215-2x15w-class-d-audio-amplifier-board-with-bluetooth-21--325-100


Materials Used:
1/4" MDF (doubled in the speaker enclosure)
1/4" Walnut Baffle (doubled in the speaker enclosure

Nice work. The finished soundbar turned out real nice. I've moved away from 5.1 for my and a soundbar is on my to do list. Paired with a sub they work real well for HT.

Thanks for sharing your work.
