My son and I decided to make the ultimate Man's Picnic Basket. We took the basic components for a picnic; Picnic Basket, Ziploc containers, Picnic Blanket, and a little something extra... A custom made 2.1 HiFi stereo sound system for the music device.


Step 1: Parts

Picnic Basket and Blanket
Ziploc Containers
Small Amplifier (2.1 HiFi Stereo)
Power Supply
Mounting hardware
Wire and Soldering tools
I have the same picnic basket! How cool. Will you post your pictures once you add your battery array?
I added a smaller and thinner battery. It all fits inside now.
You bet. The 2 6v batteries, I have, are too big. I will probably visit Batteries Plus to find something smaller. It may be a while. I am glad you like the instructible
That's awesome. Think I might do this
Thank you
What did you use for power supply
Currently it is a 12v 2A wall plug. I will be installing 2 6v batteries and wire it in series. I was just throwing it together to show my son the sound difference with closed system versus open. The base really makes a difference.
