  • My take on the Madeleine, in fact this is my first woodworking project ever. This is red oak, stained with Jacobean and finished with wipe-on poly. Completely blown away by the sound, thanks, Gordy, for a great tutorial and the inspiration!

    • Looks pretty darn good for a first time project! They do have awesome sound. I'm curious, did you use the same amp as Gordy, or a different one?

        Thanks Jeff! I actually used the Wondom AA-AC11161, nice amp, it's got integrated BT4.0 and comes with all the wiring, LEDs (which I have yet to install ) etc.
        Here's the link to the amp:

          Really nice. I like the contrast of the driver surrounds and the metal cones with the light and dark grain of the stained oak.

            Thanks Mike, this is exactly the effect I was trying to achieve.
            I am starting the TriTrix build this week, but I am going to use baltic birch ply, staining it is going to be a real challenge

              I used a Lepai 2020A+ in the one I built. I also used the same Wondom Bluetooth amp that you used in my Choti Boombox build. The Wondom amp sounds good and the Bluetooth works well too. I really like that amp, my only complaint with it is that I wish it put out a little bit more volume.

              • Can I ask why you didn't use the all in one Dayton bluetooth amp board?

                • If the question is for me thatís easy. It was not available at that time.

                    If you were asking me, I'd say the same as Gordy. I built it in 2015, the Dayton Bluetooth board didn't exist. I did use the Sure version of the amp in a Choti boombox I built last year.
