Step 1: Materials
2 - 6x9 speakers I use some cheap ones from walmart for $24
2- Military Ammo Boxes Pawn Shop 4.99
1- Can Black rustoleum $3
1- Dip it rubber coating $4
Step 2: Cut First
The 6x9 speakers will come with a template which you can lay directly on the box. Make sure you center the speaker and have the handles facing the way you want. Trace template on speaker then use a grinder, drimmel , or Drill to open up a place to start. Once you have a starting point you simply follow the template line you traced with a jig saw.
Step 3: Sand, Paint, and Mount Speakers
Now its time for paint I went with paint/rubber spray/paint gives it some texture and hopefully makes it a bit stronger. Lay the speaker in the hole after paint has dried and use a marker to mark where holes should be drilled for screws. Also at this point dill out a hole for the speaker wire to come through. Then give all edges a good sanding before mounting the speaker.
Step 4: Wire
Wire speakers and turn it up to 11...
