Nice project. I may have to try something like this for myself.

Got the top on. Have a little trimming of the foam and Gluing to do on the top.

Just a temp. Prop for the top. Will make a permanent one soon. And that wire is to the solar panel, it's not running through the port I just stuck it there

The shadows make the top look more mis-aligned than it really is. It is slightly warped, but not badly at all.

Thanks!

I drilled some holes and injected foam between the plastic and the wood, everything is pretty rigid now!

It is getting heavy thou, I hope these plastic handles don't break. If they do I can fab up some new ones, but I wanted to keep the original look on the outside of the cooler, which is why I kept these handles.

120 quarts of beer and ice weigh about 240 pounds, how much does the cooler weigh in with the sound equipment now?

Far less than that. I'm guessing 75ish or So?

But no one ever said the handles had stress analysis done on them....there's nothing stating weight limits in the original documentation.

Got it outside for a few minutes today, there was a little bit of sun and 50deg! Only listened to it at high volume for a second or three, but distortion seems acceptable and no chuffing from the ports.

The battery I had was only putting out 11.85 volts under load (it's older and not fully charged) so with the lithium battery and all the panels connected in full summer sun this thing should rock!

I finally got the rest of the parts for this and finished it up. Well almost, just need a quick way to attach and detach the 4 gauge wire to the LiFe battery.
Installed the heavy duty 15" grill, and got the solar panel connectors soldered up and attached to the battery. This battery is so tiny and lightweight! And after a few hours in the sun at my friends house yesterday voltage was still at 13.42 volts after using it, more than the charged lead acid battery ever was fully charged. That means ill be getting more power out of the amps, which is awesome!

Here it is at my friends house while we were bbq'ing, can't wait to fire this up on the beach!

This is the battery I went with, along with the smart charger for it. Came to $310 shipped for both I believe?
