This is my first instructable, so bear with me on this. I wanted to build a speaker system that I would be able to take with me to work. Along with allowing the option of charging usb devices (phone, or media players). So with all the stuff I brought to work everyday to take along with me in the truck. It was beginning to be a big hassle, so I decide it was time to bring all the components into one to easy to carry, somewhat lightweight box.
