All-in-One Home Cinema Coffee Table

Supplies:

  • A wooden or metal box of your choice, we will require a length of 27 inches (0.70 m) x 16 inches (ca. 40 cm) as the minimum size.
  • A projector. Today you can find many options in the market, traditional ones or LED one, to even picoprojectors. For a good experience, be sure of selecting at least a 1080p native resolution.
  • A set of speakers. Our choice was the Creative Gigaworks T20 a set of two speakers with incorporated subwoofer and twitter. If you prefer to have a separate subwoofer, be sure of choosing a bigger box. Also, keep in mind that the whole box will act as a resonance camera, so the subwoofer effect it’s there as long as your speakers are inside the box.
  • Acoustic panels. This is basic to ensure that our coffee table is not noisy.A power strip with at least 3 sockets, we advise 4.
  • A TV box of your choice. For us, an Apple TV will do the trick, but any android TV set or even the Amazon Fire stick could work, as long as they have a remote control.
  • Four wheels with built in brakes.
  • Two hinges.

Start painting from the inside.

Install the acoustic panels for soundproofing and mark where the speakers will be.

Step 4: On Wheels !

Turn it around to install the wheels before installing the electronics !

We recommend you install one with at least 4 sockets.

Laptop fans are the best option, as they have the incline option to orient the projector.
