Old JVC Boom Box (Antique?)

Hey guys, upon my travels the other day, I stumbled upon an electornics bin or two and one of them happened to have a few "ghetto blasters" or boom boxes as other people would call em. I should really get some better pictures, but these will have to do. I brought it home expecting it NOT to work at all, as usual. It DOES work but in a somewhat limited way. I brought it home upon the conclusion that it felt rather solidly build for such a small system and it looked the nicest out of all of them. The "Problems" sort of speak: * Well for one, the left channel doesn't work, but BOTH the speakers DO work. They both have battery compartments (6 C cells each speaker in series = 9v-ish?) and they both have "extension" cables so you can unhook the speakers and place them elsewhere, the wires are 4 strand ribbon cables and the power is also transported down these wires. I find it rather retarded, because at full length, these wires are a foot long at best?! I managed to get around this debacle for now and plugged the extension wire of the left speaker, into the plug for the right speaker, powering both speakers off one channel. This works half decent, but it doesn't go as loud as one speaker would go, and it gets distorted easier at high volumes. * The tape deck doesn't work. I hit the play button and it DOES indeed make a whirring sound, so my guess is that it needs a new rubber belt for the motor, and I have no idea where to get something that small. Did I mention that apparently the tape deck, actually comes OUT of the stereo, and theres a compartment for a set of AA batteries, thus turning it into a shiny silver 80's walkman. I'm ultimately dumfounded.. * The switches on the top of the unit, primarily the two buttons that change the "fuction" or input of the boom box, are crapping out really bad, like if I set it to radio, I have to raise one switch, and push one down, but it sometimes doesn't work, or it crackles really bad, or isn't as LOUD as it should be, but if I jiggle the switches enough, I can usually coax it into working. It's annoying at best. They are really impossible to get at and they're long pushbutton switches with a long plastic rod that pushes the switch on the board. I really doubt I can get these switches open and adjust/clean them. Should I maybe get the dremel out and but some little toggle switches? * It's missing the little faceplate for the radio selector? Oh well I can still manually tune in a radio station without knowing the number, primarily 94.5 the bull here, it's pretty hard not to miss it blaring some rock or heavy metal. I like this little unit and I wanna fix it up/tweak the crap out of it. If I could get subwoofers small enough, I would upgrade the speakers, reinforce the inside of the speaker casings with epoxy, and maybe dremel some bass ports (would that be a good idea? From what I can tell, it's a totally sealed unit, but it would probably benefit from some "bass ports"). Also, would it be beneficial to "reflow" the amp board? Like theres a board with a transformer and what appears to be a stereo transistor, but like a wide one for two channels, instead of two independant transistors for each channel. So I can only imagine if one side of the chip is working, the other side should too. Would it be a waste of time to reflow all the solder joints or no?

Airsoft/Spudgun crossover: Anti-Personnel Explosive thingies

Its a PVC/ABS thing that works like a spud gun, but launches a powder cloud (and potentially BB's). It's remote-triggered, so it can be buried underground, and only the top has to be removed, so it can be permanent. It works in the same way as a spud gun. I'll try to get diagrams up tomorrow, and if I can build it, pictures and an instructable, of course.

Looking for ideas on how to make a boom stick for sound effects (LOUD BOOM!!)

Hey everyone!!  I'm looking to make a loud boom-stick for our local high school football team.  We are the Pirates, and already have a pirate ship in our end-zone, but we are missing a cannon to "fire" after scoring a touchdown.  It has to be pneumatic, because..... well, let's just say explosives or flammables are NOT very welcome on campus!  Anyway, it will not fire a projectile either, but when finished we will mock it up to look like an old pirate cannon.  I would seriously like to make as loud of a BOOM as possible!  Thanks for any help!!

boom blocks levels

This future instructable will show you how to make levels that I make or if you have made on I will collaborate the future instructable with you and you can post yours. if you don't want to be colaborated all you have to do is post a picture of your level ,tell me what map you used ,what story line you edited it from. and I will re create it and ad it to this instructable. please do not post a level unless it's some awesome machine ,or if it can actually be beaten. ideas for levels: try to get Gorrilda to the Gurts but lure her to explode bombs to blow them up. Try to make here take a detour so she doesn't. I made one just like that where it shoots a Gurt into space if you don't stop Gorrilda from detonating the bomb. more coming soon... maybe.

Flash Powder Problems!!!!!

Every time I use flash powder from firecrackers to try to make a big one all it does is burn up. No matter how hard I try to compress the flash powder all it does is burn up when it is supposed to blow up. Any tips?

Looking for cheap LiPo 3s low voltagle cutoof/balance circuit

Looking to add portability to a boombox project I built. Want to just grab a LiPo r/c pack and use a 3a 12v SMPS to charge it with. Know of a good battery protection circuit? This will be going to a non tech minded friend. So I'd like him to just be able to plug in the PSU when he is home without the worry of overcharging and be able to run it until the low voltage cut off is hit without worrying about killing the batteries. Any suggestions? It would be for this https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Boombox-Ghettoblaster/ Thanks

flash paper!

This idea came from cartoons so bear with me.i have seen some flash powder instructables but not any flash paper ones (or so i think)using tetranites flash powder (https://www.instructables.com/id/Flash-Powder/) and mix with the idea of making paper (http://www.pioneerthinking.com/makingpaper.html) if you substituted "recycled paper" with flash powder could you make a flash paper that would ignite with a poof when lit. my conclusion is that the sponge would absorb the water along with the powder, but adding flash powder after making the paper while its still "wet" in step 9 add a layer of powder and sandwich it. maybe have one end without powder to make a rough fuse.i dont know what do you people think?

Semi or fully automatic knex gun.

I know you people don't believe anything without pictures, but, I DON'T CARE!!! I have a video! I promise! Ok, this is a semi-automatic. Pull trigger, boom, pull trigger, boom. That is it, no pulling back the ram or anything. I have not made the fully automatic version, but all it needs is a motor on the trigger and it will be fully automatic!!!!!!If any one wishes to post instructions on this gun, I hereby give you permission as long as you give me credit.

dancing paper dolls with magnets

When in Europe, I saw a street vender that stood near his little boom box and had 2 dancing paper dolls next to it. I bought the paper dolls and now need to figure out what he did to his speakers or magnets in his speaker to create this illusion of dancing dolls that can dance next to a boom box. The dolls had magnets on the backs of them, so it had something to do with a magnet inside his boombox. Can you help? Thank you.

Trying to resurect some old boom box speakers

I recently took apart an old boom box and salvaged 4 working speakers out of it. Then, I thought it would be fun to mount them in my workshop so I could plug in my ipod and listen to music while I work. I've tested them out and they all worked when I connected the leads to wires from an old pair of headphones. The only problem is there not very loud, so I would like to give them some more power but I'm not sure how to do that. Two of them say 8ohm 3w, on the back and the other 2 say 8ohm 5w, and then I have another random speaker that says 2w, 8ohm, 4w max. So, how much power can those speakers handle (in volts and amps) and how do I hook them up?

When I follow the "Direct link" to it, it tells me that it has been removed "by the author". However, I have not done anything to trash it - I worked relatively hard on it! I can only access the editing page because I bookmarked it - on my member page, is says I haven't made any instructables. In the "History tab", it shows that my instructable has been changed by "admin" and "randofo".

Boom-box ambulance

An emergency siren that alerts drivers by making their vehicles vibrate is being tested by doctors in Hampshire, England.The Howler is being used by BASICS Hampshire, a charity made up of 20 volunteer medics who attend about 750 road traffic accidents every year. The Howler sends out low bass sound that makes the car in front "shake".Dr Rob Dawes, a volunteer doctor whose full-time job is as an hospital anaesthetist and military doctor, said people get out of the way quicker when the device is used.He said: "The main problem is on the motorways where people can't hear the sirens or see you, because often they either don't look in the mirrors or they've got the radio on quite loud."What this new siren aims to do is, because they can't see you and they can't hear you, we hope that they'll be able to feel you."

Inline out door amplifier

Okay i posted a while back about a project that I was converting my cd boom box into a mp3 back pack but after tranfering the it into another case it is still to big. I did wire the speaker though to a 305mm phone jack and found that if I pluged them straight ot my ipod that it gave sound, so what i need to do id buil a mini inline amp that runs on batteries so that it can boost the signal to make it louder for the speakers. Any Ideas?

Bicycle Music

I ride in the San Jose Bike Party.  One of the things that I like is the music. People with all sorts of boom boxes, dj systems, and lighting mounted all over their bikes or trailers.  I would like to build something like that and I am checking out the many interesting projects listed here.  I am wondering though, is it possible to speed the music up or down to match the bike speed, maybe with a magnet on the wheel and a sensor on the frame?  I don't know if it would be a good idea, but the thought of a dirge when we are slow and chipmunks when we are fast is just funny to me.

Xvid & MP3

These two seems to be the most popular video "backup" codecs on the internet (if you know what I mean). Since I started playing the pirate game on the internet, I always wanted to transcode all my video files using these two. Over the past two years, I have probably wasted several gigabytes of Google's bandwidth in a frustrating and tiring search to find an easy way to do this. If anyone have found one or a nice compact free program, please please come forward and help a brother out. If you know a why to do so with VLC, it would be da boom.
