    This is beautifully designed, beautifully made and it sounds great. Really nice instructable. I'd like to say a word in defense of the Bose SL Mini.

Yours obviously is a lot more delicate, it would not survive being packed in a suitcase or taken out on the road on a bicycle.One thing I really love about this project is how you combine the beautiful wood work with a simple tutorial on batteries, bluetooth, and small modern amps. You taught me a lot. Thank you.
