    I have a order of the 4" full-range Pioneer drivers on the way, and want to get a cheap enclosure to start with.

    I was thinking about something plastic (easy to work with, these are 87 cent drivers!), like a bucket with a lid, and I could cut out a hole for the drivers.

    Should I just hit the 99-cent store and see if anything looks good (remember, I need a pair, so one-off things are out!), or does anything work well for this application.

    Note: I am completly serious about needing an enclosure, but want to have (cheap) fun and hopefully use something goofy [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    Ohhh, I like the PVC idea. I bet I could getto-rig it and JUST use the pipe.

    Nice thing, at 87 cents a pop, I can travel around with the driver and not care if it gets messed up!

    I will be looking at things like coffee cans, paint cans, any plastic box I can, etc.

    I need to go to the Dollar Tree!!!

    Boredom.

    I have spent the last few years looking at DIY projects and forums, and want to play around with some speakers. I don't have woodworking tools (yet), so I am not worried about building any real speakers now. I just want to play around and have some fun. Figure, 8 drivers for $20 (shipping cost more than the drivers!), and 99 cent store cabinets are not a big deal!

    I have a pair of JBL HT4V's, so I am fine in the audio department.
