This project was so quick and easy that it has left me reeling about other ideas that I can come up with. Imagine.....creating a Portable Bluetooth Boom box for around $25. This guy was created using just some dollar store supplies and a few products from Parts Express.

Step 1: Supplies

This project was so quick and easy that it has left me reeling about other ideas that I can come up with. Imagine.....creating a Portable Bluetooth Boom box for around $25. This guy was created using just some dollar store supplies and a few products from Parts Express.

Step 2: Pick Your Design

First come up with your design. There are endless amounts of stock photographing and illustrations of Boomboxes online. Just go find one you like, and print it out on large 11”x17” paper.

Step 3: Attach It to a Backing

Next you need some corrugated plastic (Yard sale Sign) or Foam core from your local Dollar or Craft store. Glue your Boombox printout to the backing using preferably a glue stick. Spray adhesive and other glues can take longer to dry and may seep through the print out causing the ink to run.

Step 4: Cut It Out

Once your glue is dry, cut the shape out using an X-Acto knife. You can be as precise or quick about this as you would like.

Step 5: Prepare Your Audio

Next you will need to prepare your audio components. For this example the PE3W-BT Rechargeable Portable 2x3W Bluetooth Amplifier must have it’s wires trimmed and exposed to connect them to the exciters.

Step 6: Attach the Exciters

Use the 3M adhesive backing on the Dayton Audio DAEX25 Sound Exciter Pair to attach them to the back left and right side of the cut out, coinciding with the speakers on the Boombox design.

Step 7: Attach the Amp

Next use industrial adhesive, Velcro strips, or double sided stick dots to attach the PE3W-BT Rechargeable Portable 2x3W Bluetooth Amplifier between the two exciters.

Step 8: Connect Your Components

You can now connect the wires from the Bluetooth Amp to the proper terminals on the exciters. Making a knot in the wires beforehand helps secure extra wire.

Step 9: You're Done!

Now you’re all set! All there is left to do is charge the amp’s battery using the provided USB cable, connect it to your phones Bluetooth, and Rock out!
