Parts Express Knock-Down MDF 0.23 cu. ft. Mini Bookshelf Speaker Cabinet

CNC knock-down cabinets make it easy for the beginner to end up with amazing finished results without all of the time and effort necessary to perfect your woodworking skills, perfect for speaker builders who don't have expensive tools or access to a woodshop. Assembly literally takes minutes!

During the CNC process, dadoes are cut into the top, bottom, and rear of the side panels to ensure a secure fit while maximizing the gluing surface and making assembly easy. 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. While designed to be a 0.23 cubic foot bookshelf cabinet, this enclosure can alternatively be laid upon its side for center channel use. 

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: 3/4" • Panel material: Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) • Finished cabinet volume: 0.23 cubic feet • External dimensions: 11.5" H x 7.5" W x 8.5" D • Internal dimensions: 10" H x 6" W x 7" D • Made in the U.S.A. • Sold individually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great center channel optionI bought this cabinet to use a center channel in my new set up. The cabinet fit together nicely and was the perfect size for what I needed. I am using:HiVi F5 woofer (Part # 297-435 )Dayton Audio DC28F-8 tweeter (Part # 275-070)crossed with a Dayton 2.5k crossover (Part # 260-142)1.5" port (Part # 260-402).The clarity of the mids that the speaker can produce is impressive, and the bass is good for a speaker this size as well. It is probably the best sounding center I have heard and it matches my left and right main speakers which is nice. I would be happy using two of these set ups for some bookshelf speakers in the office or a smaller room. Aside from sounding amazing especially for the price, the parts I used all fit together perfectly without even having to do as much as trim the port length! Making this a very easy project and perfect for a first build. I would highly recommend this for a center channel or even for a pair of bookshelf speakers

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid. Easy assembly. Requires some sanding...Hello, I used these with the Dayton 6" reference woofer and Vifa dual ring tweeters with the cherry vinyl covering. They went together easy but needed to be sanded with my belt sander to get the seams smooth for the vinyl. Not much, though. The speakers sound great!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solid cabinetThe cabinet is veri well built. It is easy to assemble, and a very good quality kit. The value is a little bit overpriced, since for 60 bucks you can by the cabinet pair for the Dayton kit here at PE. The only "flaw" is the lack of a grill option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent flat pack cabinetI use this for a test box but it could easily be sealed and painted for a nice looking bookshelf. To seal it you can either use several coats of sealer/primer, sanding between each coat or mix up some wood glue and water (about 3:1 glue to water) and paint/smear over the entire surface. It dries hard and costs 1/10th what a can of paint costs. When it dries just sand it smooth and paint it any color you want with a single coat.Cabinet goes together easily, has well though out rabbet placement, excellent cut accuracy for perfect seams and is 3/4" MDF for a super-rigid enclosure. Do be aware that the front is butt-jointed against the cabinet without rabbets but if you cut/route your openings first you'll have no issues at all. Rabbet joints seal without internal sealer and are twice as strong as butt joints. Perfect

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good fit, rough finishThese go together pretty well. They have a nice tight finish. But they are hard to finish even with oil based paint. Whatever you put on the cut edges just soaks in and the finish between the surface and edges doesn't blend well. If you were going to cover it with veneer this wouldn't be a problem. One way to improve on the design would be to rabbet the front baffle so it recesses slightly. All in all, I suppose they are worth what they cost... barely. It's too bad you can buy a pair of the B652s for less than a pair of these MDF kits. It should cose less to build your own, not more.

What exactly is the finish on these cabinets?  Or is there any finish at all?  Can't quite tell from the pics.  Is it just particle board finish?

Asked by: 1957Teddy
These and all of our knock-down cabinets are bare MDF.

Can we order just the front baffle? I want to experiment with different drivers.

Asked by: Rick64D
Unfortunately the baffles are not available separately for these cabinets.

What hardware do you recommend to make an attractive, removable front baffle?

Asked by: Perkins
I would use these #8-32 screws in this driver mounting kit, but substitute the t-nuts for these hurricane nuts.Part #: 081-1080 & 260-779A small square of 3/4" ply or mdf glued to the inside of each corner would provide 4 secure mounting points. A drill press should be used to avoid misaligned holes and drill out a recess for the bolt heads.This is what I plan on doing at least, hope that helps.
