Step 2: Step1
-Do a mockup in a cardboard box, mine was from a item i just ordered that week.
Step 3: Step2
-Drill starting holes, and cut into the box, a router would be ideal but I only had a stainless steel kitchen knife from one of those infomercials my mom got me, I never had the need to cut through a frozen turkey or bricks with it.
-Dremel your holes smooth and to fit the speakers.
Step 4: Step3
-Fit everything and wire it all up, tape it all up, your DC plug and 3.5mm, use the volt meter to find the positive and negative of the DC plug, usually striped wiring or red is positive.
-hot glue everything to case.
-Note: the amp has only 2 outputs at 8 ohms each, if you want to add tweeters you would need crossovers or component speakers that have built in crossovers which mine did.
Step 6: Battery
