Rockler Stereo Wireless Speaker Kit with 2 Speakers and Playback/Volume Controls

Full stereo sound with large diameter left and right speakers for spatial depth and richness—connects to any Bluetooth® device!

90% of 100

Build your own dual-speaker system with true stereo sound that brings the musicians right into the room. Two large 2-3/4'' diameter wireless speakers provide rich sound, while a 1-7/8'' control pod offers full playback controls. Build the speaker cabinets in the shape and material of your choice—use blocks of wood with holes drilled in them, or build a pair of hollow cabinets with fancy joinery. You can also get creative by integrating speakers into furniture, cabinetry and other commonplace items. The system connects wirelessly to any Bluetooth enabled device. In addition to the speakers, the kit includes a USB cable and a control pod with a USB charging port, 3.5mm auxiliary input, and on/off, forward, back and pause buttons. Press and hold the buttons to adjust the volume. The speakers and control pod are held in place via friction fit. Use 1-7/8'' and 2-3/4'' Forstner bits (#55985 and #56683, sold separately) for the control pod and speakers. You can also use hole saws or a jig saw, as the bezels will conceal any rough edges. No soldering is required.

Features:

  • Rich stereo sound with true left/right panning
  • Larger 2-3/4'' diameter speakers for fuller sound
  • Connects to any Bluetooth-enabled device
  • Control panel features forward, back and pause buttons
  • Pressing and holding the buttons adjusts the volume
  • Auxiliary input jack lets you connect input sources with a standard ''mini jack'' or headphone cable
  • Internal 500mAh battery is recharged with the included USB cable
  • Easy, solder-free wiring with the quick-connect color-coded fittings and 12'' wires

Vintage Fender Amplifier
This is a fun product allowing for a lot of your own creativity. I used this to make a set of vintage Fender Bandmaster amps for my sons' birthdays. The quality of the sound is excellent.
Details were added using a my laser.
Tilts back just like the original!
June 5, 2020
I built the speaker like the Rockler plans. Assembly was straightforward and I was very pleased with the sound quality of the speakers. After seeing and hearing ours, my son requested one, so I got to order and build a second one.

Nice Kit!
Built this kit for use in the basement when I am working on projects. It turned out well and my wife likes using it too! I used a circle cutter instead of a Forsner bit to get a tighter fit on the speakers so I did not have to epoxy them in.

Eastern Red Cedar Stereo Speakers
I used a chunk of Cedar and the sound is great. I also like the natural colors of this wood. The kit was easy to use with my Fornstner bits. It was a college graduation present for my granddaughter who is now a 2020 college graduate.

The project was a great learning tool! My speaker was made with Purple Heart wood and Sands plywood. It symbolizes the Purple Heart ribbon dedicated to the fallen & wounded soldiers. The Instructions were clear and a joy to build.

Work great from my Android phone.
Works well from my Android phone (Samsung Galaxy S-8+). I'm making a modified version of the box shown on the information sheet. I'm adding a slot in the top that will hold the phone with access through the back for the USB cord. I'll make it out of laminated 1/8" exotic woods (from Rockler, of course) on a 1/2" zebrawood bottom and sides. It does work in the mockup, but I'm sure it will sound better when I'm done with solid box.

Excellent project to include the grandkids
I built this with my 7 year old grand daughter, and she loves it. The sound is excellent. We built ours using the size and shape described in the plans - sides out of black walnut, and front and back out of maple. I attached the decorative grill work on the front with double stick tape so that she can change the look if she decides to at a future date. The front is captured in the dado slot, while I inset the back into a recess, and attached it with two screws into the center dividers - just in case she ever wants to get in side. I applied a bead of silicone around the inside of the to prevent the front from rattling in the groove with base notes. - another advantage of making the back removable. She really enjoyed the project, and the end result is very usable. She had her iPhone linked up in seconds, and was off playing tunes.

Good audio for its size and cost
Good sound for the size and cost of this item. Would like to see perhaps a "follow-up" (woofer/sub-woofer} kit to get more bass.
I recommend this item.

I'm wondering if anyone has (or will) design an engineered enclosure for this product? The box shown looks very nice, but I know that a proper enclosure with baffles and ports will greatly enhance the sound of even these small speakers.
MICHAEL B on Mar 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I can not find any such designs. If would like to design your own, try using WinISD. WinISD is a free speaker enclosure program that is easy to use and can be download online. After you have built your speaker please post it to our customer project gallery.
How many charge/discharge cycles for the battery? Is it replaceable?
Bill S on Mar 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: While there is no specific information on this battery model, it is common to what you find in many cell phones (LION 3.7V 500ma) so you can expect anywhere from 1,000 to 2,000 charge cycles depending on the discharge cycle of the battery when used. Over time they all slowly lose capacity but this should provide good service. As far as replaceable, it is mounted directly to the speaker via double sided tape so I would think you could replace it but it may not be an identical battery pack by the time this one fails. If you are handy and have basic understanding of electrical workings you could replace it with a similar part.
Can just one speaker be used? This speaker is larger than the single speaker kit.
Michael M on Feb 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, this plays in full stereo sound so you would loose "half" the sound anytime a song had a full left or right volume. For example, if only one large speaker was installed, The Beatles would only play Paul McCartney and John Lennon. George Harrison and Ringo Starr wouldn't be heard.....Some people might find this as a benefit, but you would be only getting half the experience.
How shallow a cavity can these be mounted in? Can they just be placed into holes bored into a nice looking piece of wood, or do they need a cavity behind them for sound quality?
Mike M on Apr 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: My directions state this notice...."Recommended interior dimensions of speaker enclosure: 3 1/2" X 3 1/2" X 8". A hollow box-type structure is recommended. These dimensions may be modified, but changes in sound could result." That is from the instruction manual. Your idea would probably work, but you would have to try it to see how the sound is. I like my kit installed inside of an antique tube radio cabinet. With it I listen to old time radio shows from the internet, it's fun!
I don't see a separate battery in the photos or the list of component contents. Is it a separate battery? Is it built in to the speakers? Or ... is a battery required in addition to the kit?
JOHN H on Apr 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The battery is actually on one of the speakers. You will need a deeper cavity behind that one speaker. There is a third piece you can't see in that picture, which has the adapter for the charger.
What is the specs of the speakers themselves? How many watts ?
navysniper7 on Mar 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 3 watts. Frequency response 180Hz-20kHz
I see the optimum size is 3.5x3.5x8. Is this the internal dimensions, per speaker box?
Mark U on Apr 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I used those dimensions as the interior dimensions and it worked and sounds great. I also only created one large box with each speaker on a side. If you’re going for a multi box look then I would suggest doing a 3.5x3.5x3.5 for each speaker box.
Does it have a remote like pictures show?
Daniel S on May 26, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There is no remote.
Does this turn off automatically after some specified time of non-use?
Charles on May 21, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Once the Bluetooth source (cell phone or MP3,4 player) is either terminated or it goes out of range it will power down after a few minutes but as long as there is a connected source it will remain on until battery runs out of power.
can you plug this into the back of a stereo and play it through it? as in make an old stereo bluetooth?
buck on Apr 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: there is a line in, auxiliary input jack. Though you wouldn't be making an old stereo bluetooth. The Aux jack would take the line out from your sound source and then play it through these speakers using the wires.
Does power have to be on to use the aux. jack?
Jim C on Jun 2, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes the speakers get their power from the battery and don’t work unless the unit is on. I don’t thintthe auxiliary jack can supply power
What is the diameter of the speaker face?
Jason Cloutier E on May 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Jason,
The diameter of the speaker face is 3 inches. The flange on the back side is 1/8 inch, which is enough to cover the 2-3/4 inch hole you will bore to friction-fit the speaker body into the front panel. Hope this helps.

Will the speakers connect to Alex? I have another bluetooth speaker (not yours) that will not connect will Alex.
Grimmy on May 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I can not confirm it will connect with Alex. However the receiver is Bluetooth 5.0 and supports the following profiles: A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, HSP. Please check to see what profiles Alex supports for compatibility with this receiver.
What version of Bluetooth is the controller?
Cojak on Apr 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The 2 Speaker Kit use Bluetooth version 5.0
Is the Bluetooth receiver and amplifier included?
Staziak on Apr 23, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is. Simple to link to your phone or IPOD. Has great music sound and also sounds great with audio books.
How long are the speaker wires? It looks like the speakers need to be near each other (as in the picture), but I'd like them to wide apart (maybe add extensions to the wires).
Jonathan H on Apr 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: That is inches not feet
How much power (watts) does the amp have?
Eugene A on May 29, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Output Power = 3W. Frequency Response 180Hz-20khz
can you link more than one set of speakers to the same device? I would like to use in my rather large backyard and would use two sets of speakers in different ares of the yard, linked to one device (cellphone).
Alan R on May 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it should be possible but will depend on the device, cell phone etc., that you are using to transmit the music. Most recent Android devices will be capable of doing this. I know the latest Samsung phones are capable and I would assume other makes are as well.
How long are the speaker wires? It looks like the speakers need to be near each other (as in the picture), but I'd like them to wide apart (maybe add extensions to the wires).
Jonathan H on Apr 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 12 inches
I have an antique radio and I need to separate the speakers by 3' or 4'. Are extension wires available or can I do my own extensions?
Ron O on Apr 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Adding additional length to the speaker wires can be done but you are adding additional resistance that ultimately will reduce the speaker volume achieved. With 3 watts of amplifier output available try to keep the length as short as possible and test the results before building/modifying the enclosure. I would also warn that if the modification does not work, you would not be able to return the system if wiring is cut or modified.
