That looks better than Altecs imt800 and TDK's new box. Wish you designed for Harmon!

A neo/coax driver with a high FS and sensitivity would be nice for these boomboxes.

Here are the new driver guards. They need yet to be brushed before installation.

Some updates: I added a pre-amplifier, because the nokia N800 output power sucks. Now it makes much more noise, but playtime at full volume decreased from two days to something like 8 hours. Maybe I'll double the batteries or something. I also remembered to weigh the thing now that I'm redoing the paintjob. It doesnt weigh 8 kg like I said earlier, but 7kg. The empty plywood/fiberglass casing only weighs 2,6 kg. I wish there were cheap fullrange drivers with neodiym magnets, so I could cut the weight some more. I'll post some pictures when I get the paintjob and clearcoat done.
