Find the Right Woofer

Midnight Monoliths

Clean looking, and even cleaner sounding. The Midnights Monoliths were designed to produce wide dispersion of clear, crisp sound with Deep Bass.

Midnight Monoliths

Designer: Strandt

Project Time1-8 hours
Project Complexityhobbyist
Project Cost$100-$500

Driver Selection

Mid and Bass drivers are 4" with a range of 70hz to 6khz. I used a Pezio tweeter with a 47ohm resistor, with a range of 3khz to 25k hz to finish it off.

Enclosure Design

The enclosure is made out of MDF. IT is a very, tightly made box to minimized reverb, with no internal dampening material.

Amplifier/Crossover Configuration

the tweeter I crossed over at 3.5khz. The bottom woofer is using a low pass crossover at 500hz, and the mid has no crossover.

Enclosure Assembly

I used a nail gun to assemble this enclosure, with a very thick primer over it, then 4 layers of an oil based high gloss black paint


These speakers are surprisingly clear. Great High's, Outstandingly accurate lows. I was planning on using them with a Subwoofer, but it is really not necessary.

About The Designer

Dan Strandt has been selling home audio and designing home theater systems for over 5 years. Unhappy with the quality and/or price of speakers avalible in retail stores, he began building his own. Eventually Dan wants to make a career of custom speaker design.
