I don't think we have ordered yet (I'm not the one ordering), but if you like, you could share a package with us, but since we will buy 10 ourselves, you would also have to, but then you could maybe sell the ones you don't use? It will be 208kr for 10 pieces, and we also live in Copenhagen so that should be easy.

I'll throw in the money for the one buying for a package of 10 piezos. It's not that expensive at all considering the KSN replicas at ljudia.se cost 65 SKK a piece excl. shipping. PM me if with payment information as soon as you know something

@rubennn - I have contacted Saturnus, and I have not changed my mind. Just to let you now

I was just thinking about the cigar socket. The polarities are the same as a DC plug, yes? Middle is plus (+) and outside is minus (-), right? I just don't want to make the electricity run the wrong way through my phone :P

Yes. And it's not possible, phones are polarity protected.

I just discovered that the edges on the handles are pretty sharp if you're carrying the thing around for several minutes. Have you discovered any way of making the boominator more comfortable to carry? Or am I doomed to use a wagon :P

The edges of the handle. Are you building the version where port and handle is the same, if so then, as you can see in the original pictures, it must be rounded on both sides. A 3mm rounding is good enough but I prefer 6mm rounding. That makes it perfectly fit the curve of an adult hand.

Okay I finished my first try on the boominator. As you may have noticed I have not done it completely as Saturnus intended. Magnets are not touching, grills are not mounted on the inside, solar panel doesn't fit on the top and some other stuff. I think I overestimated my skills building this boombox... Yet... I'm still shocked over the output this bastard can deliver and how well it sounds! I can't wait for amp, speakers and piezos to be burned in to have another listen. This boominator is for my sister's camp and it's gonna play at her birthday tonight.

I have to admit I was pretty concerned that this would be shitty cause I've been missing a lot of stuff. I am now relieved that that it didn't have so much of an impact on the sound quality as I first thought. There's still something for me to work with, but I almost can't imagine how good this will be if I did it exactly as Mr. Saturnus intended.

Thank you for sharing, dude Couldn't have done it without your help - no seriously... I couldn't.

Here's a link for the uploaded pictures (thanks to Darkwithin for the idea of uploading at photobucket.com):
