Step 1: Find a Wooden Box

At the very beginning,I was trying to make a boom box by using a paper box, but one day I got a wine box from my father,so I decided to make it a wooden boom box.

Step 2: It's Sounds Good, But Lack of Something

You can see the paper box of my friends, it looks nice but sounds just a little bit stranger.....

Step 3: Find a Amplifier Like This.

You can find the function description on the amplifier board, such as VCC,GND, L,R (means channel), and you can test it on your laptop.

Step 5: Use Wine Box Instead.

I just find out a wine box and i have drilled two big holes for speakers, and one small hole for the rotate resister on the Amplifier. and wire everything up.

and also,i find a raspberry Pi as music player, burned latest image to the TF card and boot it up, installed a software called "omxplayer" , download some music into my TF card. and write a shell scripts to play music.

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get -y install omxplayer

sudo omxplayer -o local xxx.mp3

last command will turn on the music, just enjoy it and have fun.
