i have a speaker i made from a peice of styrene and a lighter. i had a lego, and it was the perfect subwoofer shape, so i used styrene to melt it over it, and it worked out fine, i have about 5 of them made

I don't know if this would help but for your speaker covers you could get a very fine mesh from a bong shop used for smoking pipes as a filter well thats what i use anyway

This one in the Pie Wagon is made from a paper circle covered in masking tape for texture, slit from the edge to the centre. The edges overlapped a little to produce a cone. The dome in the centre is the plastic end of a pen lid I seem to remember. The outer rim is just styrene. It's just over an inch across. Total overkill, but I renamed the wagon PYE Wagon after the old electronics company.

Hi all, for the speaker box, you could use expanding foam,the type thats in pressure packs for sealing gaps etc. Just spray some into a box, you may need to line it with grease proof paper first, then your can cut, carve, sand and putty till you get the desired shape and size you need. Then all you need to do is paint it and fit speakers in it,cheers.

Another thing you could use to fabricate the box is MIlliput epoxy putty. It's available in many hobby shops or look for it online. Use the "Superfine White". The great thing about Milliput is its long setup time. It takes about 24 hours to fully cure, so you have plenty of time to get the shape right. It can also be sculpted with wet fingertips/tools.

With its long setup time, you could probably poke your speakers into it, then work it to the exact shape you want. Remove the speakers after it's been sitting a couple of hours, then do your final shaping after 24 hours. Mask off the speaker holes then prime, paint, and reinstall the speakers.
