    So I drilled holes

    Advertisement



    So i drilled two fairly large holes on the back cover, the sound is SO MUCH better it's unbelivable, downside is i cracked the cover a tiny bit but it's no biggie.

    Sweet! Glad the operation was a success!
    hahahaah! I haven't got the time to drill mine yet, I hope my back cover doesn't crack completely...
    Maybe if I heat up the drill bit beforehand, it won't?

    I did a few dummy tests on a CD Cover to make sure my hand doesn't jump off and scratch the whole thing, it was fairly easy and quick, the only reason it cracked slightly was because the damn thing got stuck and i had to pry it out and in the process cracked it

    Success!!! Although I cringed at the thought of drilling my brand new Pearl, I broke out the old Dremel and it looks factory done without a scratch or crack. Would HIGHLY suggest using a Dremel if you have access to one. With it's high speed you won't risk cracking the cover and will get no splinters at all. Also, drill from the inside of the cover with the back on a solid wood surface. What a huge difference in the volume!!

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I am not that handy but I know when drilling finished wood your supposed to drill from a certain side to make the holes smoother and stop it from splitting.

    Is is the back side or the front side ? This may apply to the smoothness of the Pearls holes too.

    Man I don’t know about you guys, but for me drilling holes in my beautiful pearl is just not acceptable. But hey that's just me

    P.S. I usually have my headphones on every time I listen to music.
    P.S.S. If you’re curies about buying a new stereo headset with a mic built in and a perfect quality, I strongly recommend “earglove” They usually cost $40 but I found them twice cheaper

    Okay, i decided i didn't like how that worked either, so here's the final product. Using a dremel bit to cut the square out and using scisors to cut a peice of my old computer speaker's cloth out, and then taped it on the inside of the back cover, and voila.

    I also drilled mine, but i put some tape on there first and drew the spots i wanted to drill in and with very light pressure drilled the holes. You have to let the drill bit do the work and if you us the tape it will keep it from splintering and you will get a nice uniform look.

    Yeah! It works!
    ALSO!!!!!!!

    If you drill 3 small holes above the little blackberry emblem on the back and 3 small holes below it works good too.

    Plus the 6 small holes makes it less likely to crack!

    Awesome idea though!

    Here is my speaker holes I just drilled a few minutes ago. I have the full shieldzone on which didnt enjoy being drilled threw so I had to take the peice off that covers the silver part. Small price to pay for great sound.
