    Gather Your Materials

    Consider your desired audio quality and price range when choosing components for a DIY bluetooth speaker.

    Let’s start with the materials needed to build your DIY bluetooth speaker. The first step is to choose a sturdy yet lightweight wood for the cabinet. Since you will be mounting the speaker on the sides, you’ll want a wood that won’t vibrate against the speaker. We recommend either MDF (medium-density fiberboard) or plywood for this purpose.

    Next, choose a circuit board with a pre-installed amplifier. You’ll also need a bluetooth module that will wirelessly connect your speaker to any bluetooth-enabled device. To ensure a high-quality sound experience, it is essential to pick these components carefully.

    In addition, you’ll also need to decide on a power supply and mounting options for the speaker. Once you have all the necessary materials, you can begin assembling your speaker.

    Build the Cabinet

    Acoustic properties, portability, and aesthetics should all be considered when choosing the shape and size of your speaker enclosure.

    Now that you have chosen your materials, it’s time to construct your speaker’s cabinet. If you opt for MDF or plywood, creating a solid and sturdy base for your sideboard is crucial. We recommend starting with a large square that is cut in half lengthwise. Measure your amplifier’s height, width, and depth to determine the appropriate size for your cabinet.

    Once you have these dimensions, start building the cabinet by creating a rectangular-shaped frame slightly larger than your amplifier. This frame will serve as your cabinet’s foundation and house both the amplifier and bluetooth module. After you’ve completed your structure, you can add the finishing touches to your cabinet.

    To keep your speaker’s cabinet organized, create a designated storage area for your power source. This will ensure that you store your power source safely in your cabinet with minimal risk of overheating or damage.

    Connect the Amplifier

    A speaker amplifier boosts low-level electrical signals from an audio source, such as a bluetooth module or a music player. It supplies enough power to the speakers to produce sound.

    Now that you’ve created a cabinet for your new bluetooth speaker, it’s time to add your amplifier and speakers:

    1. Create two holes on the bottom of the cabinet for mounting screws. Once the holes are drilled, flip the amplifier over and secure it to the bottom of the cabinet with the mounting screws.

    2. Next, connect the bluetooth module to the amplifier. To do this, locate the audio output ports on the bluetooth module and connect them to the corresponding audio input ports on the amplifier.

    3. Finally, secure the power supply to the power input on the amplifier. Make sure to check the voltage and current requirements of your amplifier to ensure that you use a power supply that can provide enough power.
