Driving home one day, Reddit user BarryAbrams found something on the side of the road that he simply had to have — a pair of old hi-fi speakers. Seeing more than just the junk the previous owners thought they were, Barry saw potential. He knew that he could create something truly special with them.
So he brought them home and got to work. With a new finish, 3-D-printed parts, and Wi-Fi capabilities, these speakers will make you want a set for yourself!
Found on the side of the road, these speakers were nothing special.
Looking them up online, Barry saw this photo of what they originally looked like along with their current eBay price — $30.
No matter, he set to work. After designing a front for the system, he cut it out of plywood.
Instead of standing them upright, he rested them on their sides.
He added an amplifier into the center of the unit.
For a cohesive look, he 3-D printed toggles to control everything from the outside.
Next, it came time to apply finish to the outside of the unit.
And when it was done, it looked amazing!
Though Barry’s no audiophile, the journey of building this sound masterpiece was truly a passion project. If you’d like to see more of Barry’s work, and even purchase some of his wooden treasures, make sure to check out his Etsy store.
