Does this method on the left also work ok as one battery pack? Because that's how we did it...just want to know if we should redo it?

Okay. All the speakers I have ordered is sold-out. I'm ditching the boominator design, and going with some PA-speakers.

Do you think these would work with the TA2020 amp?

Thornton SE212 Højtaler 400W

I don't have time to build anything I think, so I'll have to go with pre-assembled speakers.

Should be plenty of time for building, since we have all parts but the plywood (which we can get quite easily) and the batteries.

But I don't think we will be going for the Boominator design, since my friends don't think it will fit with the style of camp they wish, so all speakers will be on one side.

But we will figure it out in the following days, with some testing and properly some annoyed neighbors.

We were planning on building something like this, where the base of the case i chosen on the basis on the wagon we are going to use.

Speakers are the Goldwood GW-1058 and these piezo's | IMG Stage Line 110480 |Piezohorn MPT-005 Hjttaler-enheder Piezo Diskanter

The volume of the box is 233,1L minus speakers, amp and batteries.

Any thoughts on how this may do, and if the speakers should have seperate compartments?

Thnx for reminding me about the fuse, will this do? Conrad - online shop för teknik, elektronik och innovativa idéer ? And what fuse should i go with, 30A (brobably a dumb question, but ive never done this before)? Also i have a question about On/Off switch, if i want to charge the battery should i put the switch between solarpanel/regulator or regulator/battery? I already have a On/Off switch between Amp/battery.

100W at 10.8v (worst case scenario, drained battery) solves to 10A. The fuse should be 16A then.

As for the cable, that thick cable is a good idea if you want to squeeze the last drop of juice out of the battery.

Default Hey

Hey,
You know the story. I also would like to build an boombox, guess Boominator design is great although i need it a bit for another purpose. I am DJ and i usually have small parties with friends around the beach so i need to be able to use my laptop and mixer so maybe i need a way to fix it on the boominator. I haven't thought about the design yet.

If you are curios this is what i have :
http://www.m-audio.com/images/global...nent_v2008.jpg
This freaking mixer uses 7.5W on 12V !!. It's almost the double of the power consumtion of amp6basic. Oh well...

I also have an Macbook Pro.

Right to business :

1. Where can i get the P.Audio HP10W ? Can you recommend another woofer ? Same quality ? If not then i rather wait if it's not in stock ?
2. I have managed to get my hands on 2 brand new 6600mAh / 98Wh Lithium-Ion batteries which i intend to use. Any ideas on these ?
3. I intend to buy a solarpanel in Germany or Sweden as many of you have recommended. I hope to find an 20W panel. I might also buy an charge controller but that depends if i feel i might overcharge batteries or not.
4. I won't even ask about amp It's already ordered (amp6basic)
