    I'm looking into a slightly larger 12v option that used a ND65 driver as well.....let's see how that plays out lol

    That's looking really slick now. Great work!

    Almost the same as MK8, just different assembly at the top and mounts for the hardware. The other noticeable difference is just the DSP settings are slightly different to the other.

    Ok done, might need to put some stuffing in it, but all wired up.

    Will do a test tomorrow as the kids are asleep.

    I like this one as it glows don't know how it will sound

    Ok couldn't just waste a perfectly good print/paint job.... Did this one slightly different where there are dual 10mm ports (did prior to modelling) and created a internal sleeve that you glue in place and bolt the lid down to.

    Fun fact this ones white regions will glow in the dark and is technically MK7

    Yeah I won't be doing anymore cans, this is just finishing off a 75% complete job that's been staring at me with puppy eyes to pay it some love. The way this one ended up i was trying to utilise some of the deadspace around the edges, where the Mk8 was extremely tight and i suspect may take up more internal volume than this iteration, will be interesting to see when 100% assembled if this one has more of the lower end than its younger brother. I also tried something different with the DSP and looked at the bass shelf/boost option in lieu of the EQ

    Fyi I had it running today at a moderate volume as I was working at got over 6 hours until it decided to lose connection...which may be due to my BT headphones being also paired. Would be interesting to let it run all day with no clashes and see what runtime I get. Thought that was fantastic for one 18350 1200mah battery setup so far

    Really cool results.
    No you saw right, I sanded this like it was timber from 80grit all the way though to 800 grit. Was a bit pedantic with the finish considering the fact it portable

    So you're finally happy with it? You sure did stick with it.

    Yeah happy as can be to be honest. Just need to do a day test to see how long it can operate for on the 1200mah 18350 battery im using. I do have one other that i want to finish in the glow in the dark one, but need to retro fit a top on to it. but no rush.

    Wired up and i can honestly say i've had enough of this tiny project

    https://youtu.be/7R068GGK1_w

    it aint going to shake any fixtures off the walls, but considering its size and what it is powered by i can honestly say i'm happy with how it turned out.... I really need to take a page out of tomzarbo book and get some better recording equiptment thats for sure, my busted up pixel 2 really doesnt cut it and i can hear some parts in the video where it sounds like it is muffled, but its full 360 degrees sound baby!.

    next will be a 12v version of something...........just nothing has popped into my head yet

    fosters lol, the drink the world thinks australians have\like haha. Unless you are talking about a darwin stubby

    I ran it yesterday and it was sounding pretty decent, then when i glued, screwed and assebled i must of bumped a cable and something went in crooked and it was all painful from there. I'm just doing a few tweaks at the moment, but think it should sound ok for a 5w driver being powered by a 18350 3.7v battery. I'll be moving on from these ultra tiny builds after this one, you can only take so many hot glue and solder burns before you break lol
