Absolutely. Any of the cells near the 18650 size should work. I always recommend/caution people recycling those cells that you check they are in good charge cycle condition and have over/undercharge protection circuitry. Last thing you want is a Speakerbox that explodes while charging next to your flaming Hoverboard ashes.
Do you think recycling laptop batteries would be sutable to supply this speaker? Of course enough to get to the correct voltage.
I'm having trouble sourcing the 6,000mah Li-ion battery you got(the flat rectangular ones). Do you think 18650 Li-Ion batteries would do just as good? Like ones that can be salvaged from laptop batteries. Thanks in advance.
oops never mind, i should have looked at the batteries you got.
Thank you, I am glad I could share some knowledge and experience! I added the 3A 12V->5V USB converter to provide a charger to phones or tablets on the back of the stereo. With the 6Ah 12V Li-ion battery built-in, I usually get a 24 hour battery life, so there is plenty of juice to spare :)

Fantastic, and nicely detailed tutorial. As a speaker newbie, I have a couple of questions-- 1) I noticed that each of your woofers aren't chambered. I read somewhere that dividing your woofers are a must if you're using stereo sound. I'm still trying to figure this out because I'm designing a similar boombox. 2) How do you think your setup would sound compared to popular bookshelf speakers such as the Micca MB42x or the Pioneer Andrew Jones? I've considered gutting those and incorporating the drivers and crossovers into my boombox. Thank you for your input!!
