The Porsche Boxster rear speaker system requires the hard storage unit. If the Boxster did not come with the unit, it will cost about $300 on EBay if/when they become available.
We decided it would be easier to just make some enclosures for the rear speaker kit.
The project was pretty involved, mostly because there were no instructions to follow... so we had to design everything from scratch. We looked around and settled on using PVC pipes for the housing unit.
The good thing about PVC pipes are they are cheap and they are easy to cut. We went through about $40 worth of pipes before we got the design just right :-)
Apparently, we were NOT the first to consider using PVC for speaker housing. Some folks have turned PVC pipes into Acoustical Art!
This project was divided into 3 phases:
- Construction (16 hrs)
- Painting (2 hrs)
- Installation (2 hrs)
Project Summary: housing
1. Difficulty - High
2. Time - 14 hours (incl. design)
