Yes, I know, another speaker build!

I thought I would get on the resin hype for this one and do something outside of what I am used to with these types of builds!

The inspiration for this has come from a recent fascination with honeycomb structures. Combining this with wanting to use resin, I decided on a resin inlay design.

I've also had a recent obsession with stone effect spray paint, I have done a number of projects using this fantastic, textured paint. I love the way it makes a boring cabinet bring a little bit of class to a speaker build.

If you liked this build, please check out my website where I have other projects you may like :)

These speakers are for sale at the moment, but I am also taking custom speaker commisions if you are after something special!

One of the good things about speaker building is that the materials are very available. Most builds will typically feature a cabinet made from plywood or mdf and a front baffle made from hardwood.

For this build I'm using white oak for the baffle and MDF for the cabinet.

For this particular build, however, I wanted to get on the epoxy hype and see what I could come up with when combining it with a speaker build. So I got some casting resin and I ended up using blue chalk, ground up, to add colour to the resin. I got this make shift resin pigment idea from Peter Browns video on the topic:

The looks are kinda cool but I was expecting a honey comb interior for functional damping.

What about baffle design? Doesn't look sturdy enough for an infinite baffle and why waste time on a ported baffle?
These look fantastic! The honeycomb design combined with the resin is just great!
