Bluetooth Ammo Can Speaker


Project Category:
Portable Speakers

Project Level:

Project Time:
1-8 Hours

Project Cost:
$100 – $500

Project Description:
Hey Guys, I am still learning, but I wanted to build a portable speaker that didn’t look like anything you would typically see in a store, so I built an ammo can speaker.

Design Goals:
To make a portable speaker that would be loud enough for a party and have the ability to be used anywhere.

Driver Selection:
Polk 5.25 Book Shelf Speaker w/ Tweeter

Enclosure Design:
50cal Metal Ammo Can

Tips & Tricks:
To cut the big holes make sure, if your lucky enough, to have a good hole saw or jig saw. These can be little frustrating to cut.

The speaker works great! I took it camping and the batteries lasted for days! The only downside is that since the can is metal it drastically reduced the distance of the Bluetooth Receiver.

About the Designer:
Speakers, Speakers and more Speakers!
