Step 1: Select the Place for LED's
You need to select the place for LED's, and mark it with a pencil. Check that you have space inside the speaker box for leds!
Step 2: Drill Holes to the Marked Places
Drill holes to the marked places where the LED's comes. Use rasp to make hole to fit with the LED.
Step 3: Solder
You need to solder your wires to the speakers + and - sides, the sides with the LED's does not matter.
Then solder your LED's + or - side to the wire, and solder the other wire to the other LED side too. Do this step again with the another speaker.
Step 4: Place the LED's
Put your LED's to the holes you drill'd. Check that your wires does not touch each other, or your speakers does not work!
