This is a build project I conceived for a friend’s 8-yr-old grandson (who is quite handy with various power tools and a soldering iron!).
Self-contained portable enclosure comprising a stereo speaker arrangement plus amplifier/bluetooth receiver.
Qty 4: Parts Express sourced 1-1/2″ x 7″ 16-ohm full-range drivers (specified as surplus flat screen television speakers).
Plastic ammo case (11” x 5” x 7.25”)
Rectangular cutouts for the four drivers; two per box side for the L&R stereo configuration. Velcro adheres the amplifier to the case exterior.
None; drivers driven full-range. Each of the two driver pairs are wired in parallel, yielding an 8-ohm load per left & right channel.
Tips & Tricks:
All driver wire connections are soldered for ultimate portable reliability.
Fun & easy to assemble; sound is quite full with respectable bass response. The amplifier offers both bluetooth and a 3.5mm jack for stereo audio input.
