Introduction: JCase Blu

Here is the second installment of my budget suitcase speakers.  I renamed it JCase since before I didn't have a name for them except Boomcase Mimic.  Please enjoy.

Step 1: Parts and Tools List

1 3.5mm panel mount jack
1 retractable 3.5mm male to male audio jack
1 L.E.D volt display meter
Poly-fil (from the store or old stuffed animals, sorry Teddy Ruxpin)

Tools:
12v-18v drill

Step 2: Design

I strayed from a stock mockup in a cardbaord box to just a simple design placement in photoshop.  The main difference from this case compared to the BoomCase Mimic is the L.E.D volt meter for the battery. 

Step 3: Masking/ Cutting

-Tape up your suitcase, draw your template
-Drill starting holes, and cut into the box, a router would be ideal but I only had a stainless steel kitchen knife
-Dremel your holes smooth and to fit the speakers

-This time the plastic was at least about 1/4 inch thick so it took me way longer to cut.  I think it's time to invest in some power tools. :)

Step 4: Finished
