I have an old 1980s vintage pair of Mobile Monitors (MMIII) that I'd like to install in the new leased car I got from work. These speakers are still in good condition and still sound good - well done Polk.
The new car has provisions for rear door speaker mounting, but these speakers won't fit, and since it's a leased car I can't do any cutting. Same with the rear deck - no cutting allowed, so I decided to make small enclosures and place them on the rear deck.
I'm looking for technical recommendations for the enclosures. I realize that the speakers aren't going in a sound room, but if I'm already making enclosures, I may as well match them to the speakers if possible. Here are the factors I thought should be considered:
a. Enclosure material (particle board or plywood I suppose)
I will be driving the speakers with a Kenwood KRC-608 that's rated at 45 W peak (22 W rms) per channel. It drove these speakers fine in the past, when they were mounted in free air in the rear deck of my previous car.
Any and all advice will be greatly appreciated.
And thanks again Polk for making speakers that last and continue to sound good.
