When we build Custom Speaker enclosures we usually hide them or make them fit in a particular area for a natural look.
As seen these were built from special MDF to accept 8 inch drivers and to fit behind the seat in our 50 Truck project. If you look close there are tiny relief slots close to the striker post for the seat belt straps to fit through the boxes.
The bottom side shows stainless brackets to attach the boxes firmly to the floor for safety.
Hiding Stereo components in the trunk is a common approach when you want to keep the interior original looking. The luan wood panel shown was built to fit in a side trunk opening and the template and metal bracket made from such to hold a CD changer is about ready to install.
Other bracketry is made to hold components and support the back side weight of a large amp capable of powering up a large cockpit.
All components installed in to the side trunk pocket.
As seen the changer bracket was out fitted with a support to hold it in place and assist holding the weight of the CD changer weight .
Mock up cover made in paper board will be transferred over on to Luan 3/16 thick materials.
Luan panel easily removes for any serving needed. We will cover this with trunk materials so a stealth objective is met.
These dual speakers have been mounted in a custom fabricated steel support bracket which will be installed directly under the factory center speaker cover.
A look from the underside.
