This is an original drive-in movie speaker rig I picked up with the intentions of modifying/modernizing it for Bluetooth capabilities.
I wanted a completely wireless, mobile Bluetooth speaker set up to take anywhere I want to go. I loved drive-in movies and thought it would be awesome to freak out family and friends when I fire this badboy up!
PC105-4 4″ poly cone speakers
Speaker holder (top of pole )
Tips & Tricks:
No tips or tricks needed, just have fun and use your imagination.
I did not want to sacrifice original speakers or the housing so I made my own control panel from 26ga. sheet metal. All wiring runs up through the housing using existing holes. I used Velcro to secure the circuit boards to the housing. The control panel is a simple 3 3/4″ x 4 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ deep box that I made and is secured to the top of the pole via 2 screws with nuts and lock washers. The speakers attached to the original housings with no modifications needed!
