Project Description:
Homemade Star Burst cabinet for the Dayton Audio MKBoom Portable Bluetooth Speaker Kit. 3 rechargeable Battery Banks (9 batteries), and a hanging system to fly the speaker. Built with wheels for moving around the room and has storage location for the power cord and steel Fly cable.

Design Goals:
A cabinet that would better distribute the sound than the square cabinet that came with the kit. The triangular surfaces really improve the sonic residence!

Homemade triangular starburst made from found wood and other found objects.

Enclosure Assembly:
Assembled with gate hinges to accommodate the tough angles.
