This is a good solid way to use the TCSS premium speaker with 1" pvc, it also makes a great sound chamber too. I used 1" electrical pvc threaded male & female connectors, & a 3/4" end cap. The TCSS premium speaker fits perfectly inside the male connector. The female connector gets glued to the hilt. I also have to apologize for the pics. My wife dropped our camera & broke the lens. :x I shot these with our video camera.
I drilled sound holes in the male connector, & the 3/4" end cap. I also drilled & tapped the end cap so I can use 8/32 button head screws.(Thank you Kevin for informing me that pvc can be tapped.) When the end cap is secured it will hold the speaker in place.
I put it all together & have a pommel with a speaker inside of it & a nice 1" or so sound chamber. You'll noticed I cut some of the threading off. This way the speaker wire won't get twisted in the hilt.
This is the same the video I posted in the gallery for the Shadow Trooper Saber.

Rogue Five: Sandpeople-Cool! I don't have any of the Noble Collection swords but I have a few of the United Cutlery ones and they are superb replicas as they're modeled directly from the original props. If you're interested in buying another one, I highly recommend

Rogue Five: Anduril. I have one and it is gorgeous and sturdily made. I believe it is a full tang sword so you could swing it around without it flying apart. Trust me, you'll feel like the King of Gondor holding this thing lol.

ARKM: "full tang United Cutlery" is an oxymoron.

ARKM: That does not mean that they aren't nice for hanging on the wall though. I have a UC Kurgan sword. I like it.

Rogue Five: Yeah I wouldn't go looking for a fight with any wall hanger swords lol. I think Anduril and Strider's Ranger sword are the only full tang swords in the LOTR line.

Rogue Five: I looked into getting a functional Anduril from a custom swordsmith but no one I found made a screen accurate one.

Rogue Five: That Kurgan one is nice. Sword afficianados like to dump on it because it has a two piece blade and they're right but who cares! It looks bad a**
