Unfortunately not. A much better use of funds is to use the eminence basslite S2010 drivers. That'll save some 5 kilos. And use a li-ion, and save another 4 kilos. You're then down to a very manageable 16 kilos all in all.

Hey did you get any further designing the "micro" boominator?

The Boominator - another stab at the ultimate party machine

500x150x150mm is perfect for fitting in aircraft cabin luggage... I have a Logitech s715i now, but it's not ideal.

The Shorai isn't 12Ah though. Please read the specification carefully. Shorai batteries are exactly 1/3rd of their "PBeq Ah" rating in real Ah rating.

I am also curious about this "Micro Boominator", since I have some of the Monacor SP-60/4's for a "Micro Halfinator" speaker.

Not beyond helping people on the 41hz.com forum design theirs.

It's not a design I'm interested in anymore, so I'm not going to pursue it further.

So, here's an example of the huge prices for little suitcase size projects: The BoomCase Store / Store Front I wonder how they got some of those driver combinations to work reasonably?

They didn't. The boomcases are all crap in sound quality and only made for the visual effect of what looks cool. In some, not even all the drivers are actually connected.

What type of ply would you recommend for the qubeinator? I'm guessing filmed birch, but how many layers?

And where do i find this type of wood in Denmark?
