well , another boombox on the way
and this time i decided to make it the smallest that i can , real miniature - so that i can carry it freely to the beach without grumbling on the weight issue.
hope you enjoy!
Step 1: Shopping List
so , for this Instructable i decided to build something modest , small , and yet COOL.
i bought a used Center speaker
new Sealed Lead 12volt 5amp Battery
A variety of bolts and nuts
a few angles
small LEPAI amp from eBay
Plexiglas - had at home a piece of 1x1 meter
The tools needed are :
drill bit + drill
solder + tin
Screwdrivers and/or electric screwdriver
that`s it in general
Step 2: Cutting the Plexiglass
Measure the diameter of the speakers
start cutting the Plexiglas according to the measures
Step 3: Create the Outer Shell- Plexiglass
measure the size of the desired BOOMBOX and cut it using the saw.
over all we need :
and one back piece
Step 4: Cutting the Side Angles
Found some old Angles on my warehouse
cut them with the saw and assembled them to Plexiglas angles
Due to weight issue ( the Battery ) i had to use at the bottom a strong kinda heavy angle
Step 5: Assemble All Pieces
Step 6: Create Bottom Legs
from an old broom stick i cut a few pieces
Step 7: Create Internal Support Angles for the Rear Plexiglas
In order for the Boombox to be stable and not shiver we need to strengthen it via Small angles
Step 8: Tear Down the Plexiglas Protection Nylon
Step 9: Glue Wallpaper on the Angles
Step 10: Reattach the " New " Angles
Step 11: Soldering Time
Solder a small Capacitor to split the Frequency between the Woofer and Tweeter
Step 12: Create TWO Custom Bolts for the Charging Ports
Step 13: Drill Inside the Amplifier
Drill inside the amplifier to attach it to the upper case
Step 14: All Done !
