Ok, so this might seem like a very lame question, but my husband wants to hang our outdoor speakers on our newly finished extension and I am opposed to making holes in the trim or the siding (Hardie Board). The brackets for the speakers force us to mount them vertically.
So, we thought he could make a box-ish structure to hold the speaker (front will be open). Our contractor reinforced the vinyl (or whatever it is) soffit so he could screw into it.
The wires are already there just waiting to be hooked up to the speakers.
My husband just tried to make the box-y thing and has already given up. He did a great job on crown molding in our living room so I am not sure why he's having a problem with this.
I included a picture of the addition below and wonder if you have any suggestions other than building a box to hold the speakers...or if that is our only alternative...how to easily make a box that is not too challenging to a novice.
Looking at the structure, the speakers will be on the left side under the soffit...same on the right.
