How to create a Subwoofer Surround System

Step 1: Ordering and Gathering

Plan out and order all of your equipment. For this, Amazon.com tends to be the cheapest way to get your items. Items needed include

Overall price is roughly $560 for everything depending on the brands and the quality. Remember, many items do go on sale. Getting the items then will reduce the price!


Step 2: Cutting Holes

Cut holes in your box or cooler. Remember to cut the exact size of the speaker/subwoofer and no more. Its always easy to start with a small hole and make it bigger. A normal tool to use for this is a jigsaw.


Step 3: Inserting

Insert speakers into holes and bolt them down for no rattles. You can also put rubber between the speaker and the wood for less rattles.


Step 4: Wiring

Correctly wire speakers to car radio or car amplifier. This step is important otherwise fires may occur or damaged property. Also wire subwoofer to amplifier, then to the car radio or other amplifier. Afterwards, you can wire it to the battery.


Step 5: Test

Turn on the radio or amplifier and test how it sounds. Listen to any distortion or inverted speakers.


Step 6: Enjoy!

Jam out with your new system with your friends. If you want to add extra style points you can add LED strips to turn on when the lid opens. The more LED lights you have the more appealing it looks. Remember how loud to have your systems. Loud music above 85db can damage the ear and may result in being deaf. Most systems are 90db and above!
