About: HI My name is Adnan Medic, I am originally from Bosnia, I currently live in Michigan. I like to Sail, Ski, Bike and build random things. Cheers...
This was my first attempt at building this speaker BOOM box and it turned out great.  Bellow is the list of parts I used. I also re wired the IR sensor the outside the box so I can use the remote without opening the box. I rewired the FM antenna to the outside also. Every hole I drilled was sealed with 5200 Marine Sealant including two big speaker holes.
 
I plan to spray paint the speaker covers flat black.

The sound is just amazing, I am very happy with the speaker selection and do recommended to anyone for just about any application.

    What is the Flash Drive for, and could an SD card be used in its place?

    I see you've mounted the IR sensor outside, but what did you use to mount it in? I can't find anything like that little grommet you used...

    I went with the same eBay special, $25 (sd, usb, fm and aux). Worked really well but I need to spend a little more time on the speaker baffling, as there's a fair bit of interference at higher volume levels. Otherwise it worked out really well. (The photo was taken before I rerouted the aerial to the top of the box.)

    I use NOCO Genius G750 6V/12V 750mA Amp Smart Battery Charger and Maintainer. I bought it originally to charge my Jet Ski battery, but it will charge just about any 6V-12V battery and it has worked well so far.
