In response to the question "share your best project with us," we received many great submissions. One project really stood out, in terms of creativity, finish and furniture construction this entry made a big impression. This project was submitted by Arjen Huitinga and we rewarded him with a durable SoundImports Dopper.
Arjen indicates to us that this is a TV furniture with all components built in. The furniture is divided into 2 compartments with an extra compartment for the subwoofer. The technical components for amplification are concealed in the middle space where the front continues optically without interruptions. The furniture hereby remains practical without concessions on the optical part. The sound experience can be compared to small bookshelf speakers / small floorstanders.
The project includes several brands of woofers, amplifier and other components where this proves to be a successful combination! The Arylic Up2Stream 2.1 Amp module takes care of amplification and streaming. The amplifier is equipped with 2x 50 Watt amplification including a separate subwoofer channel of no less than 1x 100 Watt.
Sound reproduction takes place through Mark Audio's characteristic Full-range drivers (PLUVIA-7HD Gold) and the Tang Band W5-1138SMF subwoofer combined with the Dayton Audio DSA215 Passive Radiator for the low frequencies, despite the impressive performance of the full range woofers in the low end. Both the Mark Audio drivers as well as the Dayton Audio and Tang Brand modules offer exceptional performance at an affordable price.
The entire list of speaker components can be found at the bottom of this blog. Feel free to share your questions and opinions below in the comments!

Fair play, that's a great looking build
