Georgia: Build a Speaker Box for your new car

Sometimes, your car comes with the latest and greatest in audio technology and sometimes it just comes with the standard speakers and possibly a CD player. But that’s OK! With just a little time and a few tools and patience, you can build a speaker box for your car and be able to fill your drives with the tunes of your choice.

The first step is to figure out where you want to put your speaker box – the first choice is usually the trunk, but some people will put it in the back seat. If you’re planning on having several passengers in your car, the latter might not be an option. Also, this is when you need to decide what size speakers you want to go with (10” speakers should be more than enough for most, but you can also get a pair of 12” inch if you’d like).

Second, you’ll want to figure out the dimensions of the area where you’re wanting to put your speaker box. This should be in the documents that came with your car. However, if you don’t have those, go ahead and contact the dealer where the car was purchased, or even the manufacturer of the car.

Third, if you are looking for inexpensive wood for your build then pick up some particleboard from your local hardware/home improvement store. Plywood also works well and is fairly inexpensive. You’ll also need a saw, a drill, a tape measure, glue, screws, and some silicone to get started. Don’t forget your speakers and all connections and wires.

Now, just watch this instructional video, it will take you the rest of the way:
