I really didnt want to pay for tower speakers this year so i decided to make my own. Heineken makes a quality keg for their beer that just so happens to polish easily and accept a 61/2 inch speaker. Yeah the bracket bent the can a little but it will be hard to see when mounted on the tower.

Thanks, I could have spent more time wet sanding to get a better finish but there was only so much time i cold spend sanding a beer keg after drinking it.

Bravo - nice polish job bro!

Suggest you buy some dead liner or dynamat product, cut it in some thin strips and apply to the inside of your can. Should knock out any twang from the resonance of the cans.

you've gotta put some Heni stickers on them!

I just decided I need a dozen tower speakers. If anyone wants some, I'll make the cans for you.

That is awesome! If my boat was green I'd consider doing this, and leaving the printing on them. Talk about asking for attention from "the man" LOL!

BREAKING NEWS: the New Castle mini-kegs are the same as the Heineken mini-kegs. this could possibly make it easier on the emptying crew.
