In my quest to keep the girls' computer workstation as streamlined as possible, I tried to source out miniature in wall speakers to install on either sides of their monitors. These do exist if only from one retailer and at 50 bucks a piece (times 4) is a little bit too dear for my liking.
So I got myself 2 pairs of Logitech S-220 speakers at clearance from Canadian Computers, 4 'Carlon' Old Work Boxes & 4 Generic Decora wall plates from the Home Depot. Total price - less that 50 CAD.
I sealed the cable ingress with silicone sealant and have left it to dry out and air out for a couple of days. After that I will make 4 face plates for the 2" speakers from the Logitech Satellites and then fabricate some sort of grille to cover the decora face plates.
The Logitech unit comes with a wired controller that has in addition to the volume control, a power switch as well as a headphone jack. This will be installed onto a blank faceplate in line with the rotary dimmers (sort of echoing the rotary theme)
Watch this space for updates on the build.
