- soft pencil
- broken guitar
- Speakers (2)
- Speaker wire
- short wood screws (8)
Step 2: Diagram
I first measured out where I wanted to place the speakers using the ruler or a tape measure.
I measured out the centre of the guitar and drew a centre line parallel to the guitar neck (see picture). I then used a math compass to draw the circles to be cut out.
Note: Make sure when drawing the circles to give the speakers enough distance from each other.
I suggest drawing the circle at the sound hole first as it will give you an idea as to how much space you have left to play with.
After drawing the second circle I began cutting.
I suggest weighing the guitar down with something heavy to prevent vibrations while cutting the holes with a jigsaw. Start carefully and if there is too much vibration add more weight.
After cutting out the first speaker hole I used the cordless drill to make a small hole in the centre of the second circle to be able to cut out the second speaker hole.
