this is a simple way to add permanent speakers to your disc golf bag, would also work well on a back pack or any other bag. this project took me less than a half an hour, it is very easy, and the results are very satisfying.

I've tried several different speaker setups on my disc golf bag, and I've had problems with speakers falling out, or being muffled by my bag, or I had strap mounted speakers and they would continuously change speakers directions causing muffled sounds. so mounting the speakers in a way where they will not have anything blocking them is a big benefit, so far I found this is the best way to go.

Step 1: Get Your Things Together

first start by getting your speakers and your bag

items needed:

Speakers, I used Phillips multimedia speakers 2.0 LINK
Disc golf bag, I have the Fade Crunch box
Scissors
Screw Driver

the speakers run about 20 bucks, however I found mine on clearance for 10 at TJ Max.

Step 2: Practice

if you want to practice first you can, I used a rag (old cloth napkin) before cutting into my bag, however if your confident, you can skip the practice. proceed to next step with your practice material if you'd like.

Step 3: Time to Mount Them

first use a #1 screw driver to removed the three screws out of the back of the speakers

next cut a hole in your bag large enough that you can fit the front of the speaker through it, but not too big, should be a semi tight fit.
the nice thing about this is that your cuts don't have to be perfect, cause once you mount your speakers you'll never see the cuts again. main thing you need to do is make your hole is large enough so that the screw holes clear the fabric, you might have to do a little extra trimming to make it work.

next replace the screws and position your speaker how you'd like it and tighten the screws, and that's it, repeat for the other speaker.

Step 4: Enjoy Them

last and final step, go outside and enjoy them.
<p>I saw these speakers on Amazon and it says they are USB powered, how do you power them in the bag?</p>
<p>Thank you so much for this instructable, I have aquired all of the same parts that you did for the bag and i have a question about the speakers. When I unscrew my speakers there are two wires connecting the front of the speaker to the back. Did you desolder and resolder these wires to attach the speaker to the bag or am I misunderstanding how large i need to make the speaker hole? I look forward to hearing back from you.</p>
I sourced the speakers you used on Amazon for $20, as well as a bluetooth headphone adapter, so I am not tethered to my phone, which I use to score the round almost every time I play... I have the Fade Tourney bag like erikz1220, I am thinking of breaking the amp section out of the center plastic shell and shrink-wrapping the PCB so it will fit below the curved part of the disc section, wiring to speakers under there as well... <br> <br>Will post pics when finished.
That's exactly what I did, all the wiring is under the disc compartment.. good call with the blue tooth headphone adapter, I have an ipod dedicated to the bag so I can use my phone separately, but I'd love to use my phone since I have slacker radio and my songs are current.. What blue tooth adapter did you use? I'd love to drop the ipod and put everything on one device...
Here's mine I did back in Aug 2010... pretty much the same setup...
glad someone finally did what ive been wanting to for months. looks great! looking at some old speakers at the thrift stores around town for some good quality.
