Project Category:
Portable Speakers

Project Level:
Intermediate

Project Time:
20+ Hours

Project Cost:
$500 – $1,000

Project Description:
A vintage 1950s West German Grundig Radio updated with the parts from the Blast Box Kit and made to fit within the original case and speaker locations

Design Goals:
I wanted to keep the original aesthetics of the radio but i also wanted to be able to update the internals in order to make it sound and play like a modern speaker system

Conclusion:
Overall, it sounds great and I’m happy with the way it came out. However, I think if I were to do it again i would sacrifice the functionality of the original buttons and switches in order to make sure the little pieces and cables had no room to rattle around.

About the Designer:
Recent graduate of UCSD and have been tinkering with and building things for most of my life. I hope to be able to build more of these using Parts Express’ kits!
