How big of a boom box are you planning? You could always get an ipod docking station that is also an amplified speaker unit. The ihome unit I have does have a rechargeable battery built in so it is portable when not plugged into the mains. That could be taken apart and modded with bigger speakers and put in a new plexiglass case with lights. Lots of ciruits for making a light organ or syncing the lights to flash with the music.
