Ammo Can BOOM Box





Introduction: Ammo Can BOOM Box

This was my first attempt at building this speaker BOOM box and it turned out great.  Bellow is the list of parts I used. I also re wired the IR sensor the outside the box so I can use the remote without opening the box. I rewired the FM antenna to the outside also. Every hole I drilled was sealed with 5200 Marine Sealant including two big speaker holes.
I plan to spray paint the speaker covers flat black.

The sound is just amazing, I am very happy with the speaker selection and do recommended to anyone for just about any application.

    What is the Flash Drive for, and could an SD card be used in its place?

    I see you've mounted the IR sensor outside, but what did you use to mount it in? I can't find anything like that little grommet you used...

    I used an LED case, I cut it and pulled the led out...


    I would love to buy one @medic55. Do you sell them?

    excellent. thanks very much.

    Can i buy one of this from you? I like it.

    My brother loved his birthday present!


    Great to hear. What kind of amp did you go with?

    I went with the same eBay special, $25 (sd, usb, fm and aux). Worked really well but I need to spend a little more time on the speaker baffling, as there's a fair bit of interference at higher volume levels. Otherwise it worked out really well. (The photo was taken before I rerouted the aerial to the top of the box.)

    I just ordered couple more amps, will build and sell them at $300.00 a piece :) 2 orders are in....
