Intro: Workshop Radio - BOOMbox
A simple idea to make a broken Digital radio into a super cool workshop radio...with hidden speakers
Step 1: My Radio Is Broken!
Step 2: Add Some Computer Speakers
Step 3: Make a Ply Box
Cover the front of the box with paper thin ply [0.5mm thick] to hide away the speakers and stop them being affected by the workshop sawdust.
This does reduce the fidelity a little though I am happy to live with this.
Step 4: Add the Speakers
Step 5: Add the Radio
Fit the radio to the hole, plug in a 3.5mm jack lead from the radio to the computer speakers...plug in...and turn up loud
Step 6: Turn Up LOUD
Step 7: COOL!
If you have got this far you will have realised that this Instructable is full on GIFs inspired by the GIF competition to see how far I could go with it. If it worked for you then a vote in the competition would be fantastic.
