This is a active speaker construction that works on a 12V battery. The speaker gives you the opportunity to throw a party on any given location.
The first part of the instructable consist of making the speaker box. The second part consist of installing the speakers and the amplifiers.http://blog.wdka.nl/make/2008/05/13/joris-mobilesoundsystem/
Step 1: Size of the box
To determine the size of your speaker boxes you got to have the speaker drivers. For the material of the speaker box best use MDF, it's heavy but relatively cheap and it has a high level of density which makes it perfect for speaker boxes.
You also need some screws, nails (optional), glue, a filler to stuff the box with (like polyfill) and silicon to seal the edges.
For tools you need a saw, screwdriver, centimetre, a drill, compasses and a jigsaw.
I split it into two boxes; one for two sub woofer speakers and one for three woofers and two tweeters.
To determine the size of your boxes check the optimal volume and displacement for each driver. For the two 15 inch sub woofers I use a case os 92 by 65 by 40 cm (internal dimensions) For the other case I use 92 by 65 by 30. The MDF I use is 15mm thick.
Step 2: Putting the pieces together
Saw the MDF into the right dimensions and put these together using the nails the screws and the glue.
Step 3: Using braces
Use braces to prevent the box from flexing. A brace is a piece of wood inside of the box. There are different ways a speaker can be braced:
Step 4: Using battans
Battans is another type of bracing that is used to secure all the edges of the box. It is a thin piece of wood that runs along the joints of the box. It does't need to cover the entire length, about 2/3 should do it.
