Custom Powered Reclaimed Bourbon Barrel Loudspeakers


These are the a rebirth of the highly acclaimed JBL 2500 stereo speakers from the 1980s with improvements. The 5" woofer, 12mm titanium dome tweeter, and crossover circuit are made in the USA JBL components added to a beautiful cabinet made from reclaimed Walnut and bourbon barrel staves. I have also added an Audioengine A2+ Bluetooth amplifier that supports AptX for the highest quality Bluetooth Audio. There is also a USB connection for even higher quality if desired.

The cabinet volume has been increased to get more bass out of the 5" JBL woofers. These speakers are entirely reclaimed and made in the USA!

There is a video where I show the build process
