My Little Speaker Project
My boat is 90% finished just waiting on small things to finish off the boat, So while I wait I started a little project, I'm mounting a CD player in the console and was thinking where I can mount the speakers, I didnt want to cut out two big 5" holes in my nice new console just to be sure in the event of the speaker ever breaking that I would not be left with two disused speakers.
So I started to think how it could be done, My solution is simple, I had the spaekers from my last boat, I went to Tesco and picked up 2 large pudding bowls, they are made from light clear plastic and fit the speaker perfect, I the got some off cuts of marine ply and cut out a reinforcement cover/lid for the bowl, the cover was then cut to fit the speaker, the ply made the whole thing really strong while the back of the speaker is totally sealed from the elements, Im hoping to next make a "L" bracket the will scre to the ply and that will hold the mountinf bolt, this will bolt straight to the A-Frame hanging under it. Will post pics when I have it mounted.
A few pics of the speaker pod!
The last picture is the pod without the plywood insert, just to show how the spaeker will sit.
