Default Beach GhettoBlaster

Ok off the rip im gonna let you know that im new into home audio drivers and stuff... Im experienced at building projects off schematics and stuff so im not worried about wiring anything up..

Now lets get to business.. I've read through the forums and didn't really like any of the response so im gonna ask for some advice.. I wanna build a ghetto blaster.. its mainly going to be used for the beach and cookouts.. so it has to be loud and durable.. I want it to be small but weight doesnt really matter.. im not gonna really be caring it around.. And most of all cheap.. I'm gonna be around alot of people and stuff so i don't want to dump alot of money into and then someone knocks it over and i'm out of alot of cash..

I need help with High efficient drivers, amp, stuff like that

any ideas please cus im lost lol

Hello Cold21blooded...

I don't have much experience with this either but I think a starting place you might want to consider is something built by a friend of mine...

He simply built a cheap car stereo and two 6 X 9 car stereo speakers into a box and powered it by a car battery. Cost him about $100 (not including the battery) and made plenty of cheap music!

ive built 2 GhettoBlasters, my recommendations are,

speakers:

https://www.madisound.com/store/prod...roducts_id=843

amp :

Amazon.com: Sonic Impact 5066 15-Watt Portable Class-T Digital Audio Amplifier: Electronics

or ive never tried this but it looks identical???????

Dayton Audio DTA-1 Class T Digital AC/DC Amplifier 15 Watts Per Channel - Parts Express

power:

UB1270 12V 7Ah Sealed Lead Acid SLA AGM Battery | eBay


in a 7"x7"x 20"sealed box, it gets plenty loud, runs for 8+ hours on a full charge, but the thing that REALLY surprised me, was the HUGE amount of bass it pumps out.

buy the parts and build it,



if you dont LOVE it ill buy all the parts from you for 90% of prices posted here

^that is how confident i am in the sound/performance of it.

build it so you have a metal grill over the speakers, and everything else, battery,amp and i pod inside.

no one can damage anything.

turn it on, hit 'play' and walk away and boogie......

Hi
Very sound ideas here in theBoominator thread. High efficiency class D amps and 4x10" bass drivers. You could scale it up or down I guess.

alright so this is what im thinking about going with after some research

amp

Lepai Tripath TA2020 Class-T Hi-Fi Audio Amplifier

drivers

2x Dayton Audio PA165-8 6" PA Driver

tweeters ( not sure if im gonna use tweeters yet any suggestions?)

2x Dayton Audio DC28F-8 1-1/8" Silk Dome Tweeter

then crossover if tweeters are used

Dayton Audio XO2W-2K 2-Way Crossover 2,000 Hz

i dont know if i want to use tweeters cus the crossover and the tweeters are gonna take it outta my price range.. what you guys think

I would go with....
a set of Bravox !
,the ones listed as buyouts at PE , since they are really low cost ,and you can stack
many in serial-parallel - mini rig
And lots of 4X100 W class-D amps .of course
For mids and treble , cheap horns
