Burial Speaker Housing

Burial Speaker Housing

Outdoor or burial speakers are electronic components that have to perform in harsh weather conditions in the great outdoors and often around swimming pools. As a result, their housings must be particularly rugged, a point that was not lost on one of our audio customers when they sent us an RFQ for a burial speaker housing. Working closely with the client’s project engineer, we joined forces to determine the best way to produce this complicated part. The finished assembly is 25″ x 13″ and consists of four spinnings using 0.125″ aluminum. We engaged out metal spinning lathe and vertical mill to produce all the components necessary to tight tolerances of ±0.030″. One side of the housing has a welded ring with 14, 10-32 rivnuts installed. The other housing has a tube with 0.25″ wall thickness TIG welded to the body with a mounting bridge attached to the tube to fasten the top cap. The final finish was powder coating, which we subcontracted to a trusted supplier. All housings were then inspected for fit, form, and function. All of the work was completed in-house while closely following customer specifications. The lead time on this part is six to seven weeks due to the many fabricating processes involved. H & H Manufacturing & Metal Spinning Inc. now produces ten sets of completely assembled burial speaker housings per order and has fulfilled over 150 sets since the project’s inception.

At H & H Manufacturing and Metal Spinning, Inc., we have a long-established reputation for the ability to use metal spinning to generate high quality parts and components. Contact us to discover how we can work together on your next project.
