Learning how to build a speaker box allows you to customize the fit and design of the box to match your desired audio quality.
Figure the depth (front-to-back dimension) of the speaker box by adding 2 inches (5 cm) to the depth of the speaker. Use the speaker’s height and length measurements as the box’s internal height and length dimensions. Check the internal volume against the manufacturer’s recommended speaker box internal volume.
Measure the height, width and depth of the space available for the speaker box to be sure the box will fit. Use your measurements to sketch out the speaker box depending on the space you need to fit it into. Apply silicon caulk over the speaker box’s internal seams and all openings to ensure the box is airtight. This article details how to build a sealed speaker box, which separates the front and rear sound waves to improve the bass.
If there is no template, trace the circumference of the face of the speaker on the front piece and a 2-inch (5-cm) hole on each side piece for the connectors.
