Parts Express Knock-Down MDF 0.04 cu. ft. Micro Bookshelf Speaker Cabinet Pair

When it comes to designing desktop computer speakers, surround sound speakers, and micro bookshelf speakers, the hard work has been done for you. With this 0.04 cubic foot speaker cabinet pair, you get CNC-precision cut cabinets without having to own or operate a CNC!

During the manufacturing process, dadoes are cut into the top, bottom, and rear of the side panels to ensure a tight, secure fit, maximizing the gluing surface and making assembly that much easier. The front baffle features roundovers on the sides for a professional look while minimizing diffraction, and the entire cabinet is made of MDF for an acoustically inert effect on speakers.

The end result is a speaker cabinet that assembles in no time flat—all you need are wood clamps, wood glue, and about five minutes; no screws needed.

Note: Panel dimensions and a 3D SketchUp model are included in the Manuals/Resources section. To open and use the 3D model, you need to download and install a program to unzip the file (7-Zip is free and recommended) and then download and install SketchUp to open the .skp file.

Specifications: • Panel thickness: 1/2" • Panel material: Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) • Finished cabinet volume: 0.04 cubic feet (70 cubic inches) • External dimensions: 6.5" H x 4.5" W x 5" D • Internal dimensions: 5.5" H x 3.5" W x 4." D • Made in the U.S.A.

Parts Express Knock-Down MDF 0.04 cu. ft. Micro Bookshelf Speaker Cabinet Pair
Knock-Down MDF 0.04 cu. ft. Micro Bookshelf Speaker Cabinet Pair is rated 4.8333 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knock down Speaker cabinet is easy to assemble.These speaker cabinets are good quality. Once you assemble them correctly, they glue together with wood glue. No nails are necessary.One needs to hold them in your had for a minute or two after gluing, making sure all edges stay aligned properly.I installed the Fountek FE83 3 inch speaker. Once finished, they work very well with my 2.1 sound system for my TV. The speaking voices are very well defined and music down to about 150 Hertz has a very good sound. This is a low distortion system. I do have a sub woofer with these speakers to fill out the lower frequencies.I normally do not turn on the sub woofer except for music or movies. This system is a bargain at these prices.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for small full range speaker projectsThese are my third pair of the tiny little boxes. I have assembled two sets of them as gifts to my grammndaughters. The sound really good matched to the Dayton DTA t-amps. The boxes are pre- cut and go together very quickly and easily. I modify them slightly by adding a removable rear panel. Very surprising sound quality. Works well as p.c. speakers or small surround boxes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time saverSure for the price these can be made cheaper, but c'mon some wood glue and a couple of clamps, add about 5 minutes of your time and they are done for the most part! Everything matched up and fit perfect, I used them to make some computer speakers on a whim and will probably order more

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good CabinetsI was wanting to add tweeters to my old speakers but did not want to do a lot of work, so I thought I would give these a try and put the tweeters in separate cabinets. Man this was just what the DR. ordered !These are not flimsy cabinets ,very easy to build and have a good price.PE had the tweeters and speaker wire terminals to finish the job.

Can a third enclosure be purchased along with a pair? I'd need three enclosures for a project I have in mind.

Asked by: Ooops
Unfortunately these are only sold as pairs.

can i fit 1 5.25" speak in there?

Asked by: speaker_guy
The baffle is only 4" wide on this cabinet, a 5-1/4" speaker will not fit.

I want to get this enclosure and use it for mini sat speakers. The problem: My sub only plays up to 100Hz by the specs(Energy Encore 8). I need to find a mid/woofer for these that will play lower than 100Hz. Any ideas? I'd prefer sealed but ported is OK.

Asked by: SchonCuesCX09
You will be hard pressed to get anything lower than 100 Hz from a box this small. Your best bet is something like the ND105 driver from Dayton. In this volume sealed with room gain you should be able to squeeze about 80 Hz from it as long as you watch excursion and power levels.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-nd105-8-4-aluminum-cone-midbass-driver-8-ohm--290-214

im doing some studying on various enclosures for a micro 7.1 HT setup and i was wondering if these would be adequate for use with the hivi b3n?..sealed or ported? and if ported what would be the optimal size and length for the port?

Asked by: ernj
These boxes will work for a sealed alignment with that driver, however I would recommend a 100-120 Hz high pass filter in order to prevent over excursion.

Thanks!  OK, suppose I keep the existing Logitech speakers and mount a 3" sub in the box instead. Would the Tang Band W3-1876S provide considerably more bass response than the two FaitalPRO 3FE22's?  It appears to be a rather remarkable sub for the price.

Asked by: johnny_mnemonic
There are a few things that are not going to work well for this type of setup. The Tang Band subwoofer is very inefficient and you will have to drive it very hard in order to get any useful sound from it at all. The other problem is the application. Getting any amount of bass in an open environment like this is virtually impossible with small drivers, especially on a moving bike. it might sound decent at a stop light but as soon as you hit 5 mph it will be as though someone turned the bass off. About the best you will be able to do with the limited space available is basically what you have, although the 4" options I mentioned would get louder.

I'd like to mount this (one) box on my bike - perfect size! Would 2 speakers in 1 box be totally unadvised? If not, which would you recommend?  Although decent sounding, I want more bass than I'm getting with my Logitech Z320's (w/out pulling a trailer..)

Asked by: johnny_mnemonic
There is nothing wrong with using two speakers in one box, although bass response in anything that size will be limited regardless which speaker you decide to use. On something like a bike you would want to have high output as well which will also hurt the bass performance. If you were to squeeze a pair of FaitalPRO 3FE22's in there with a 1" diameter, 4" long port you would have good output and decent perceived low end.
