This is my first DIY, so pretty excited
I failed to mount the speakers in the card board pads of my Maruti 800 so I had to remove the speakers for sometime. I had spoilt one of the two pads in the dikki area so dint want to mount the speakers there.
Just took an old unused drawer and made space for the speakers and painted it. The following pictures will show the steps.
Drill holes that is just wide enough to allow the magnets behind the speakers to go through them. I had no special tools, except for the hand drill so drilled a lot
Once you have finished drilling the round shape, brake the gap between the holes using some sharp object along with hammer
Paint the wooden box (only which ever side is visible), I had some white spray cans which I bought for the steel rims, later I dropped that idea, thanks to a good advice from a fellow TAI
Detach the handle and the thick wooden piece next to it
This is how it looks in my car & it does not rattle! Luckily the size of the box is slightly smaller than the gap between the hatch door pad & back side of seats.
Yes, it does tend to jump around a bit when the car runs over big humps. Any easy way to avoid it? please let me know.
I use the car for only 400 - 500kms in a month and I dont carry much luggage so this DIY has helped me put back the ICE in its place. I also removed the old wiring (from HU to rear speakers), it had some joints in between. And replace it with full length jointless wires (approx - 7mtrs Rs.50/-)
Sorry dont have pictures showing replacing the wires. The next step is to heighten this box with some cutting on the sides and adding leds. Where do I take the wiring for LEDs to work at night?
Hope the moderators approve it and you all like it.
