    Defyant Modded "Tail" Lights!
    Started these as part of a much larger build i'm hoping to get done before a move interstate.

    The is shape chosen for it's lower profile on the desktop. For now i'll use some random 3" drivers i have laying around. But am still on the hunt for better units.

    Leaning towards the HiVi B3S Drivers but unsure if i want the copper look of the cones.

    Due to the twin driver design i need 8 ohm speakers so as to run them in parallel will give 4 ohm and keep them in amp specs.

    Modding always starts with a pile of some thing..... and this time it's MDF :)

    A little groove work is done to help screwing!

    Of course they gotta have some RGB.. @ this stage i'm not 100% sure i wanna go this route with the overall build... but the lighting can always just be left off.

    A simple back diffuser panel for the lighting

    [​IMG]

    The side and back panels cut drilled and routed

    For now one side and rear panel are left unglued as the main access panel will be cut from the bottom of the speaker but needs to include base port stand and connection.


    Next to to add some glue and a bit of clamping action

    [​IMG]

    With the Glue dried Some hex heads are used to attach the side panel

    [​IMG]

    These will sit just flush with the edges of the cabs

    [​IMG]

    The speaker holes are routed with a round edge

    Next is to make the front baffle outer edge.

    Some drivers and one of the outer edgings can be temp fitted the other is used to make a template for the speaker grill panel.

    Some ruff cutting is done then over for some router action

    This is the same method used to make the outer baffle edge.

    Next is to trim a small channel in the underside


    [​IMG]


    This is for the material to wrap over and be glued to.

    Temp attached to the cab

    [​IMG]

    A splash of black paint


    [​IMG]


    A bit of kwik grip action with a bit of pulling and stretching!


    [​IMG]

    Over for a test fit.

    Not sure how / if i want to perm attach these grills.... i'm still keen on getting my hands on some honeycomb mesh for a more gamer industrial look.

    [​IMG]


    Still a ways to go with these, more sanding, speakers primer high fill, paint base.... so plenty more to come :)

    Anyways some RGB action to finish part one off :)
