Subwoofer End Table

This end table is positioned with a couch to the left of it and a wall to the right of it. That is why the amplifier is installed on the right hand side instead of on the back (the back is visible in the room, the right hand side is not). It is a sealed enclosure which delivers a more refined bass sound compared to an open ported enclosure (at least that’s what I’m told, I’m not a sound guy). The end table matches my built in entertainment center (pics to come) and speaker stands. The drawer is a false front. I’ve had several kids try to open the drawer and get frustrated … it’s pretty comical to watch. What do you think?

Good idea. Just wondering, does your telephone vibrate off the table when the sound is up loud ?

Cool idea! Looks great! Would be neat if you could hide the wires in one of the legs.

I absolutely love the idea. They keep making great sounding speaker smaller and smaller to hide them but no one takes into consideration hiding the subwoofer. Well done.
I know the side with the controls is hidden against your wall but others may want to consider a hinged panel to hide those controls.

Thanks, I did think of putting the wires into a leg, but I just didn’t think it would quite look right. You can’t cover the amp because it needs to breathe. If I could have covered the amp I probably would have also tried to hide the wires down a leg. And yes, at full volume the phone tends to jump a bit. It has yet to fall off though …

Now that is unique! I hate speakers etc sitting out. What a great solution. Thanks for sharing.

Another great idea Hozer! It’s functional and aesthetic pleasing. I don’t have a subwoofer for the very reason of not liking it sticking out like a sore thumb. Honestly, I never have thought of hiding it like that.

Looks nice! And a great way to serve two purposes! But keep an eye on your beverages! You may need to invent a Coaster suspension system for your drinks and phone!

Very clever and a fine fit and finish on a great looking table.

Slick. How much does it weigh? What size driver and type of driver?
