That said, I've only got 1 question left before I make the plunge. Question: Is it fair for me to assume that the Boominator-Mini build would be the best starting point for a newbie like me? (i.e. price point, ease of build, availability of components, etc....)

The mini is probably not a good choice for a first build. It's very compact and tolerances are tiny and to achieve a good finish in the end you have to think ahead and make all choices and confirm that these will before you start gluing anything together. And preferably before you even start cutting out wood.

For a relatively compact build the halfinator (just hlf a Boominator) is an excellent choice.

When Wiring the speakers and tweeters in the mini to the filters .. Do you you wire the + to the + from the 2 tweeters and the - to the - .. And same with the drivers? Cant find Any description of this .

Thank you

But what's the sounddifference between boominator mini and halfinator - loudness and soundquality-wise?.. I'm thinking the Monacor SP60-8/ND16FA mini vs HP-10W/cheap Piezo from Bluearan Halfinator.. - Both with Maxamp20 AMP

WesleyK: Any idea about when your "Boominator Mini Speakerset and Filter" set is available again? Can't wait to get going on this project.

A bass capacitor has also been mentioned - where on the filter is this going to be placed?

Just curious...is there any consensus on the relative sound quality with the Basslite drivers vs the standard 10w drivers? In either case I would use the PHT-407N tweeters

Well... At first I expected to receive them again by the end of May, but that indication got postponed again tot mid June. The filters and the woofers are no problem but the tweeters are impossible to get at the moment :(.
The filter set can be found here:
Kistradio en Kratradio Specialist - Boominator Sets - Sets
We're also working on a easy to use schematic for the filter components :). The bass (bipolar)capacitor is placed in series with the woofer, and a 6.8F film capacitor is placed parallel across the bass capacitor.

Hi Wesley. Is that set suitable for the micro?

They are designed for different uses really. The halfinator (like the Boominator) is designed for primarily outdoors use. It has higher sensitivity and much higher power capability and is significantly louder than the mini, even on the same amp. The halfinator also makes a good satellite speaker when combined with a suitable subwoofer (like a cubo15) and driven by a larger amp and filtered around 120hz. To that end you can use a neutrik speak-on socket with built-in switches so you can switch between internal and external amp just by plugging in the speak-on plug. (You can naturally do the same with the Boominator as well).

The mini is designed much more like a traditional boombox and can be used both indoors and outdoors without problems.

Sound-wise I'd say they are very similar (not surprisingly) but the mini is much more hi-fi friendly for sure and will with guarantee find itself at home in any active young persons' dorm room that wants the opportunity for music on the go when weather permits. Where the halfinator is a perfect portable mini monitor for outdoors and more professional use.

I have now gathered all the audio components required for my mini Mk2 build (luckily I over ordered on Dayton tweeters when I built my Mini Mk1) but I'm still a little lost on power components .
Please could someone post a few links of the Life4po cells, charger and BMS that would work so that I have some ideas of what to get. I am aware that the batteries pack a fair punch so dont want to make an expensive (and dangerous) mistake. Construction and woodwork I can do with my eyes shut but electrickery is a black art to me. :)

So the Panasonic 470F bipolar capacitor that's included in your set IS in fact the bass capacitor? You're writing this on your page: "Because of the same reason the Bass capacitor is not yet added, as its value is still unknown". That was confusing me a bit :)
