Portable Party box (A.K.A the toolbox speaker)

Hello all, recently I replaced all 11 speakers in my car since after 15 years or so they all had developed dryrot and stopped working. As many of you are aware however car speakers only come in pairs so I was left with one perfectly good (and expensive) speaker when all was said and done. So not wanting it to go to waste I devised a plan- I would use it to make a portable sound system. I went to amazon and purchased a dayton DTA-1, this little T amplifier runs on AA's and puts out 30 watts. Now all I needed was something awesome to contain this all in. Luckily during my  daily commute to school I stumbled across a rusty old craftsman toolbox left out at the curb to die; well needless to say its been given new life. Look at the pictures I provided to see whats what, but my basic plan is to mount the speaker in the lid by building a cradle for out out of plywood, cut to fit the inner contours of the box. I will then secure the board in place by using adhesives as neccisary. I also plan on painting the wood so it matches the toolkit. In the spirit of keeping things as utilitarian as possible I dont want to deck the thing out too much, but if you guys have any suggestions as to what else I should include in the build id be glad to hear them. (Leds, decoritive touches, ect.)

Why not fit a Hard Drive Speaker to the inside of the box?
