  • it would have been better if you have included charging circuits in them because removing screws and fixing them again may cause the wood loosen.

  • Video idea: Battery replacements! For anything really. Im about to replace the NiCd batteries of my bosch cordless drill with Li Ion batteries, and i realised i dont know anything about battery voltages. You could talk about how to get more juice out of the thing, by putting the cells in parallel, or how serial increases the voltage, it would be cool as hell!

  • Kind of ridiculous to not include a charging circuit. You didn't have to do separate batteries if you had included an isolation transformer and a switching regulator for the bluetooth portion. The single battery pack would have made it much easier to include a charging circuit inside would would have made these WAY more convenient.

    • Even with the high cost I may actually attempt this one with some minor modifications, maybe a wireless charging base. I was looking for bluetooth speakers that are capable of wireless stereo; settled on JBL Charge 4, two of them would cost as much as this project, but with this project I can design the speakers to match the contemporary decor in my home office.

  • Wow these are amazing... However, creating a whole new speaker set is a big ask. I have old normal speakers sitting around and a bunch of broken BT headphones my kids have been less than gentle with. Could you do another version of this where you take old BT headphones and a well functioning "full size" but old speakers and turn them into BT speakers?

  • Very nice attention to detail in both build and sound quality. Long time fan! Two things though! 1. 6:54 hurts my eyes! :) 2. The thing that would have made these ones even nicer (imho) is having a USB-C powerbank embedded in each speaker instead of the 18650-batteries. It would allow the speakers to be used while charging and just having a sweet USB-C port instead of the battery pack. I think the price would have been a bit cheaper and having an even higher mAh-capacity. Would have needed some DC-converters for it and it would be tricky to separate the ground meaning it might mess with the sound quality a bit. I bet you already thought of this and went for sound quality instead!
