Door speaker box idea


Recommended Posts

Decided to Make some speaker pods that would fit component speakers. Wrapped them in faux leather and sealed it.   I didn’t like the idea of cutting the metal framing on the interior door so I fabricated these. It only sticks out about 2 inches and the window level isn’t compromised. Now I just need to wire up and fit the other 4 speakers that I plan on putting in the rear

Nice work!

How do you plan on connecting them to the door panel?

 

That took some thinking haha. So I decided to install some L brackets that I can screw into from the inside of the box (that way you can see anything from the outside) and then I’ll tap a hole  into the metal door, then I can screw the box directly threw the door panels into the metal door. I’ll send another picture once I’m able to do it. :thumb: 
 

hope it works

That sounds like a plan. Probably what I would do. It should work out pretty well.

I was asking because there's lots of folks who don't want to poke holes in their door panels, especially if they're unmolested originals.

Ya that’s my issue too . I don’t want to l mess with my original l door panels. The good thing is, the only harm I’m going to be doing is screwing 2 through the Bottom section of the carpet  and not the actual cardboard/door panel. I’m Utilizing that open  section of the  door panel where the original speakers used to go.
