Perfect for podcasts
This is my kitchen speaker, and I like it for podcasts. I power it with my iPhone 6S. The arrangement is super-simple, sufficient for a conversational volume, and puts out a nice clear sound. See https://youtu.be/LNOW6BLSftA

The kit requires some work. I planed and sanded some edges before glue-up. I also added some screws on the side, because I didn't have enough clamps. In the end, with a lacquer finish and wet-sanding, I was really pleased. Also the speaker should be broken in. I'd thought this was hogwash before, but I drove it for a few days with a heavy duty amplifier, it did make a noticeable and positive difference.

Great for entry Level audiophiles!
This is the step everyone has to make from conventional speaker "boxes". These babies deliver great performance for the price, probably the best. Four recommendations though: 1. Put two pieces of wood on the first curve so it's not that sudden; 2. Get phase plugs; 3. Dump the camera with stuffing; 4. Buy 6 speaker cones :)
