Leather Subwoofer

I needed a small subwoofer and wanted to make one of my own. I ended up using a subwoofer kit and DIY plywood case. But how to finish the case? Wood veneer or just paint would have been pretty obvious but since I had two unused leather jackets I wanted to make something more personal.

Wooden Case 1

Goal of this project was to make computer case that would be:

  • Quiet
  • Good looking
  • Lots of drive bays
  • Easy to update


  • Good looking.
  • Silent, all though if I was building this case now I would make ventilation shafts in bottom and top to make it even more silent (I think).
  • Enough drive bays.


  • Inside is a real mess. It is not easy to update (adding peripherals etc.), so one goal was not achieved


  • Motherboard: Asus A7V133
  • Processor: AMD Athlon 1400 MHz
  • Hardrives: 15GB & 30GB IBM
  • Other things: Enermax power supply, Hollywood+, Firewire, SB Live, DVD, CD Burner (Lightning fast 2x).

You can download drawings from here. Note that this case changed a lot after the drawings were made.
