Event description

Description

Sunday 14 January, 1-3.30pm
FREE, suitable for 15 years+

Learn how to construct a speaker box from CNC cut plywood and install a high-quality speaker driver. The design of the speaker is based on the iconic ‘Scoop’ bass bin. The Scoop is a classic design and a favourite among contemporary reggae sound systems.

Using pre-cut wood allows the speakers to be made without the use of power tools, making the activity safe for young people and easy for wood working novices. Building this miniaturised Scoop introduces participants to some of the materials, techniques and concepts used to build a full sized sound system.

Led by Jim Frize​, the workshop brings families together and engages participants across the generations, while learning the art of speaker building. Each participant gets to build their own functional loudspeaker that they can keep as a memento of the event.

The workshop forms part of the Let’s Play Vinyl National Tour in partnership with the University of Leicester, Goldsmiths-University of London, Birmingham City University and the University of Huddersfield.
