    Default First OB Speakers: Garage DIY

    I know these aren't Polks, but...

    This was something I did for fun more than anything and to use what I had on hand. I basically needed a set of garage/outdoor speakers that I could put anywhere. I had a set of old component car speakers laying around with some curly maple, and this is what they turned into.




    Now, they obviously have NO bass, but the imaging and volume I get from an old HK Receiver I had laying around is pretty impressive. Now I just need to figure out a good cheap sub to fill in, and put on a Cap to keep < 2-300 Hz from going to these ;)

    Feel free to give me a hard time as this was done with little to no planning

    ^^^Wow, well, the grass is barely grass. It is on 26 acres where most is forest, so the "grass" is only in the yard because the high stuff was cut down. Where we live no one cares about their lawn...
