Hello, I've just started exploring diy audio. I have no audio experience and am looking for beginner info. I want to convert a few military boxes I have into bluetooth speakers but realized I don't have any idea what I'm doing . Then I found the overnight sensation speakers and got interested in those.

Is there a forum on here for basics and a forum for portable speakers?

Welcome to the forum! There isn't anything specific to beginners, but feel free to ask questions in the appropriate areas for what it is you want to do- most people here are amazingly helpful, especially with beginners.

Hi, I just made my 1st suitcase box and all works great, except the Bluetooth part. If you find a good Bluetooth receiver please post which type you used.
