  • Dayton Diy Soundbar

    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.2 x

    Parts Used:

    4x Dayton ND65-8
    2x Dayton ND25FA-4
    Dayton 2x15 Amp (I may upgrade this, but I had this on hand)


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

      Nice, looks like you nailed the xover. I'm wondering how long before my youngest daughter asks for something similar for the condo she is buying next week.

        Thanks Matt! I have worked a long time at that crossover. I think it is pretty much where I want it. I may still do a few tweaks. And don't worry, I'll have the schematics and the crossover design out when I am completely satisfied with it, that way you can build one for your daughter ;)

          It looks great!
          Sealed or ported?
          Volume?
          And.. how does it sound? :-)
          ​Thanks

            That's awesome! I wish we saw more soundbars. I'd like to do something similar but incorporate a third center channel as a center.

                It is sealed. Each side is about 12 inches long. I'll post some technical drawings soon as well as a crossover schematic. I'll try to get that out to you guys next week.

                      The crossover is very simple. You will be surprised. I do not believe I will be doing anything else to the crossover. I'll have that out along with a build video in a few days.

                        This would make a very nice gift for someone this christmas. I just bought a jasper jig i may try it.

                        It's amazing that a 2.5 inch speaker sounds like anything but a toy.

                          Thanks for sharing your work, I love it. kind of fun to see these little woofers get some use. They make that tweeter look huge.

                          Well done you should be proud.
