  • Kyle's Skylon Speaker Enclosure

    Ok

    I have had several emails on how did I build the box. I did not take pictures while building it. I did not know how it would turn out and was kinda throwing money at an idea. I did not know how it would turn out or if I would even use it.

    I love the outcome of the idea.

    I am attaching a PDF file of a few drawings on how I built it. I am no artist, so keep the bad art work to yourself.

    If you come up with a better way for me to explain this then please let me know.


    I will also attach pictures of the final product soon. The boat is in storage and I will have to go by there to get photos.

        Unfortunately, the board racks are not available - unless someone knows a source.

            You know they all have a little string hanging out, but it's not a tampon, it's a price tag...

                  You will not want to afford this MC

                  The speakers alone were $550

                  Materials including the spray on liner, wire, wire looms, loom keepers, bondo, matting and resin, screen, sand paper, racks, mount, ETC


                  I am pushing close to $1,000+ to have two speakers up top. You know that they are clear and loud as HE// but I dont think you will start throwing that kind of cash at it. Dont forget that the amout of labor hours was probably in the 100+ range.

                  I dont want to make another one. Total PITA

                    I read through the PDF file last night, I'm glad you made that instruction list. It's way more involved than I thought! But I'm gonna try it anyway. Is the PVC tubes there for exact airspace or just something to build off of?

                      Probably not, your stereo sounds so good w/o the tower speakers, I'd slowly start upgrading mine to be like yours if I had more money to toss at it.

                      But if the GF wants to bring the kids out to the lake, i might invest in a skylon.

                        Let me know how your project goes, I'm thinking about going for it myself. I found a skylon rack on ebay last year and the speaker box would be a great addition.

                            Kyles looks pretty badarse... looks like something you'd have bought out of a stereo shop... I would not have believed it was home made had I not known him... It's really that nice.

                              It is super awesome, like you said it looks like something someone bought not built! I give him props for it
