Building my own portable speaker system... HELP!!!
Bear with me here and thanks for even looking. I want to build my own speaker system that is portable, something like the ipod ones, but my own rendition. To begin I have two speakers already, they're Sony Xplod XS-R1641, here's the specs from the sticker on the back;
Peak Power: 220W
Rated Power: 45W
Impedance: 4 ohms
Those are the speakers that I have, I want to add one or two lower range speakers, coaxial I think they're called, right? to the system. But seeing as how I have the two sonys already I will need to restrict my amplifier to those specs. Now, I've studied all of this in physics but never really applied it to a real-life situation. When I buy my amplifier, do I want the wattage per channel to be just under the peak power or rms power? What's the deal with the ohms? I want this whole system to run off of batteries and last a day at the beach. Is that all possible or too much to ask? I was hoping to touch it all up by putting it in a plexiglass case, probably an 8" x 8" x 8" case. I want to put a simple amplifier in it, but my real question is that whole mix up with what amperage to use per channel. Knowing what I have here could one of you brilliant audio techs recommend the rest of my setup. I already know where to get the plexiglass, unless you recommend a different material. But in respect to the sonys I already own what kind of coaxial speaker(s) should I get and which amplifier?
Here is something I found on eBay that I thought might work;
Is it too powerful, too weak? Or whatever anyone out there recommends. Thanks for all of your help, I really think audio is a neat field, just need an avenue by which to learn more.
