How to build a sound bench Answered


I'm a sound designer & I'd like to make a solar-powered sound bench. Any ideas on what components I'd need and how to put it together. Basically I'm thinking of solar panels, a transformer, a playback system (mp3 player?), speakers, and a way for people to play the tracks. All installed inside the arms of the bench. Any ideas would be gratefully received!

Solar panels put out DC so you won't need a transformer.

A battery for storage would be nice and a system to keep it charged and not over charge it or discharge it at night.

Some tips:

- Make it waterproof
- Make it vandal-proof
- Keep the controls simple

Several vendors like Digikey and Mouser sell vandal-resistant waterproof switches. They're expensive, but pretty much your only choice...
