Active speaker weekend project. End-to-end tutorial on how to build an active speaker system using ICEpower1200AS2 and ICEpower200AS2.
The tutorial covers key design aspects to meet the right price point. It contains enclosure design, assembling, different board options, system testing simple methodology, and some analysis.
The system exceeded expectations and part of the content is dedicated to analysis because sound quality exceeded theoretical expectations.
