Speaker Enclosures


The sound system in my Corvette is a bit lacking. I plan on keeping the original AM/FM radio in it. Overall it doesn't sound that bad, it just doesn't have a very full sound to it because the only speakers are mounted in the dashboard, none in the rear. I decided to supplement the factory speakers with Pioneer TS-G1040's. I didn't want to make any holes in the car, so I decided to make some enclosures.
Because the speakers would be out of sight under the deck lid, I used 1/2" chipboard and painted them flat black. The dimensions of the box are: 7" L x 6" W (at the base) and 5 3/4" H. I cut datto's to neatly join the boards together. The angle of the face is 15 degrees.
The complete project. I decided to make my own enclosures because I couldn't find any of the correct size and the one's I did find were a bit expensive. This project didn't cost me a cent because I had all the supplies laying around my garage and shed.
