I saw your post for the bike stereo where you mentioned that you have built your own portable bike stereo...but unfortunately the links you included didn't work. I have been wanting to make a pretty loud system and was wondering your suggestions. I am also building a bike trailer, so size/weight doesn't really matter, I just don't know jack about audio systems and how to power them. Any help would be great. Thanks.

heres a run down of my bike: 12v 5amph battery (fairly small) mounted in the V part of the frame, a 500W car amp mount on the stem of the seat, going to a speaker mounted to the front of the bike just over the tire, a 12v UV strobe light on the back, for safety / blinding traffic a 12v police siren fasten to the left handle bar with a switch to it on the right handle bar. and ipod that plays music, hooked to amp, blasted out the speakers, thats mounted right in the center of the handle bars. and this is on my super custom bike, which is the size of a BMX bike. i should really add pictures, its pretty damn custom
Can you give me more detail on your battery set-up? How do you recharge the battery and how long does a charge typically last? I have no knowledge of batteries or car audio, so how do you connect a battery to the amp? Thanks.

I know you've been around for a while, but I realized I never said hello. Thanks for sharing your projects and welcome to Instructables! Let me know if you have any questions.
