-This project is fairly simple as far as any construction is concerned, but ther are still some small things that need to be done. +This project is fairly simple as far as any construction is concerned, but there are still some small things that need to be done.

 In order to make the project look a bit better, we are going to want to hide most of the wiring from view. In order to achieve this, we will use some pieces of conduit running up the back of the pipes. I recommend ordering the aluminum conduit listed in my parts list, as it is inexpensive and easy to cut. Cut these pieces to around 16"​. ​ In order to make the project look a bit better, we are going to want to hide most of the wiring from view.

-Next, we must attach the conduit to the pipe. First, attach one of the pipe flanges to the bottom of the pipe, and attach one of the elbows to the top of the pipe. Center your conduit with one of the sets of holes on the bottom of the pipe flange. I choose ​to lay the conduit on top of the lettering on the pipe, however this is not necessary. Hold your conduit in place and hot glue it to the pipe with a bit of room left at the top of the pipe (shown below).+Next, we must attach the conduit to the pipe.

-In order to ensure that the speakers stand up when on a desk, and that they have the proper airflow required for the bass reflex, we will need to use screws to stand off the pipe flanges from their surface. I used 1/​4"​-20 ​screw through 4 of the pipe flange holes in order to maintain the proper balance. This may vary with your setup. Use whatever you feel is appropriate for your project. Make sure to use a nut to secure the screw at the bottom of the pipe flange.+In order to ensure that the speakers stand up when on a desk, and that they have the proper airflow required for the bass reflex, we will need to use screws to stand off the pipe flanges from their surface.

-Once you have wired up all of the circuitry and everything is working well after testing, you will want to out the finishing touches on your speakers to ensure that they stay together well. Use hot glue or tape to secure the LEDs in place along the inner edges to the pipe. Make sure not to burn yourself, and to allow the glue to dry before moving onto the next step.+Once you have wired up all of the circuitry and everything is working well after testing, you will want to put the finishing touches on your speakers to ensure that they stay together well.

 Now you may glue in place the speaker at the top of the pipe. This speaker is a tight fit into the pipe, so the glue will ensure that it lays flush with the pipe and does not come off when jostled around. Now you may glue in place the speaker at the top of the pipe.
