Speaker Box With Speakers





Introduction: Speaker Box With Speakers

I made my speaker box using 1" x 6" untreated plywood that I glued together to make 1" x 12". It is approxamately 12" x 14" x 18". I cut the 6.5" speaker holes using a jigsaw. I also used a router to route the front board. I then put the box together using gorilla wood glue and brad nails.  For the door, i held the piece of wood in place, and drilled holes on the top and bottom in the rear about 1" deep. I then cut metal rod about 3/4" long and put them in the hole, then put glue and sawdust on top. I put supports on the inside of the door so i wouldn't swing inward. I then drilled holes in the door and opposite side for handles.
I then put a coat of white primer on it. After that I put three coats of apple red paint on it. Finally I put a full can of clear enamel on it for a glossy finish, and protection.
I used a pair of 250 Watt Boss Ch6520's that I got on ebay for about 22 dollars. I also got a Kinter 500 Watt amp on there for 15 dollars. I wired it all up using the wiring diagram that came with it and put a lighted switch and a 8 aa battery holder in there for a power supply.

    do you get reasonable endurance from the batteries?

    Is this run from the mains? or 12v Battery?
    can you show some more detail on the power side?

    You missed the last line. 8 AA dry cells = 12 volts DC, more or less.
