Love the idea. Question on your .30 cal version. Anything you would change if you did it again? And what were your thoughts on that Amp you used? Thanks!
mines getting there, still have alot of ideas for it, eventually going to either make another one or work on making a 5.1 surround sound system out of them. I'm giving it a secondary function as a battery for my solar project which i'll be starting soon, this is going to be fully based around camping because i'm an outdoorsy type, Hand braided the cable also and i've made it so if i have to charge the battery i don't have to open it and bug around with it, battery is a 15AH Deep Cycle (which in all honesty only just fits.) If you guys want interior pictures just ask, can't be bothered right now because it's a little bit of a hassle because of lighting and suchthings i'd change if i went back in time: 4in speakers instead of 5.25 (THERE IS LITTERALLY NO SPACE FOR ANYTHING, I want to put a bass port but no god damned space) 12AH battery instead of 15AH (comes down to space again, thing is huge!)smaller amp (mind you the one i have now has built in bluetooth so it's not that big of an issue, got a small problem with heat so i'm retracking it and switching out some onboard components)other than that it's been a fun build and has come out looking pretty boss in my opinion, Any questions/critiques or suggestions just send me a message :)Good Luck to who ever trys this
Looks great, and the 'ible was simple to follow!Question - How long did it take to do this?

Im looking to do a set up like you are explaining for your second build. Is there anyway you could send me your parts list? Thanks
I have the positive and negative split coming from the battery. One set goes to the charge port and the other goes to a main switch. The adapter is capable of supplying enough current to power the speaker and charge the battery pack simultaneously.
If you could show me pictures of the inside that would be great! I am a teenager interested in electrical engineering but I need some help
I really like your idea but how do you set up the battery and charger so it charges the batteries and powers the speaker?
I have the battery as well as the 12v A/C power supply port connected to a 3 way center off toggle switch. The battery is charged with a separate external trickle charger.
How did you connect the battery up to the amp to charge? Thank you!
I did and it works fine
I was inspired by your Instructable to create an ammo can speaker for myself. Like others, I took a lot of cues from the Thodio A-box. I built a 24v 6 cell Li-Ion pack using Panasonic 3400mAh 18650's that feeds into two seperate regulators. One regulated to 18v for the Hifimediy T1 amp and the other down to 5v for the bluetooth receiver board. I charge it using a Universal laptop charger. Run time at 50% volume is about 20 hours on average. Charge time is about 3 hours. Speakers are Pioneer TS-D1002R. The buttons on the front are wired to the bluetooth receiver and to add an original touch. I cut and glued 30-06 bullet casings to the buttons. The port is a 1 1/4" PVC Sink tailpiece that I scuffed using a scotchbrite pad and painted to match the can. The can is lined with 1/4" MDF (attached using liquid nail) that I sealed with a few coats of poly to prevent moisture absorption. Most of the parts were sourced from eBay and I have spent around $150 in parts. I am very happy with the outcome. I am planning to attempt a second can for under $100 using cheaper components(12vSLA battery, Amp+Bluetooth module all in one, and possibly cheaper speakers). I still have a few final touches to add before I am happy with the first. Thanks for looking. Let me know what you all think and if you have any questions. - EricW137
Hi, I was wondering about that AMP you used in youre project. How did you connect the power supply and the battery to the board? Is there multiple power in connections on it? From what I can see, its just those 4 that are connected dirrectly to the battery. - cybex88
