No, These are not BMW speakers – it’s easy to miss the fact that the middle character is a ‘&’ ... but it is. And these are so much better then any speakers BMW might have made anyways… lol
So I used to install home theaters in Los Angeles, and got this set of B&W In-Wall speakers. since I do not plan on cutting any holes in our walls (yet) as we’re only renting – I decided to build custom boxes for those speakers, and use them that way for the time being – until we get our own house, and can actually fit these inside the wall permanently.
Construction: 3/4” Birch Plywood for the sides, and 1/4” birch for the back.
Technique: Miter the edges to hide the joints.
Tools used: Circular saw to cut the pieces and miters (never again do I want to cut miters with a circular saw – ever!) and hand chisel to chisel out all the inside hollows for the speaker components.
not sure how well the plywood construction performs in terms of speaker resonance, I think it somewhat buffles the sound, but as a temporary solution – it works.
