Hello, I'm attempting to make an in-wall speaker setup using non-inwall speakers. My current assumption is that I can just cut a rectangular hole in the drywall, brace the speaker between the studs behind the drywall so that it is sticking level with the drywall, than build a frame to cover it.

 

The frame part confuses me, In order to make it look good, what i've come up with is to just make a wooden square and then put speaker cloth over it.

 

Is there some better/easier way to do this?

What about just buying in wall speakers? Your walls would have to be pretty deep to mount non in walls.

I used in ceiling speakers that I had and built an enclosure to enhance bass.

(LCD - Sony KDL - XBR4) (Receiver - Sony STR-DA4ES)(Blu Ray - Oppo BDP-83) (PS3)( Dish Hopper DVR With Sling) Speakers (L & R - Paradigm Studio 20) (Center -Paradigm CC-470) (Surrounds & Back Surrounds - Paradigm SA-15R in walls) (Subwoofer 1 - Sunfire HRS-12) (Subwoofer 2 - Paradigm PW-2100)

My wall is pretty deep, its part of a wall that has like 2 feet between the wall and basement wall. I left it as a cavity on purpose to be able to get behind it and run wires/change wires if need be and also to be my electronics cabinet of sorts

Are those speaker ported on the back? If so, what will you do, plug them?
