Intro: How to Create a Bookshelf Speaker Boombox

In this project I will show you how I turned an old bookshelf speaker into an awesome portable boombox. It features a battery run-time of 100h, a battery level indicator, USB charging ports and a 20W amp. Those features make it perfect for all outdoor trips. Let's get started!
