I wanted to try something medium sized again inbetween this project and my ultimate sound backpack project (collecting funds ). So with a friends birthday coming up I decided to make her one of my boomboxes. She likes the color crimson (hence the name), so I went down to frys today to pick up some stuff. This is what I will be using with this project. 6 watt rms speakers and an el-cheapo battery charger combo. - Cost: $30 (for everything) I tested the speakers out on the wall before I hacked them up, and they were amazing, especially since they're a no-name brand. prototyping time. I decided to make something with rounded corners, I think like the mac mini if I'm not mistaken. The entire box will be an easy 3 pieces to cut out, and I will only have to bend one of them. the simple set of tools I use for prototyping my latest stuff. Start of the cardstock version... I couldn't resist putting this picture up. taking shape.... general idea. The paper didn't exactly like to make rounded corners, but its more or less of making sure everything fits inside. The acrylic sheet will work just fine. test fitting for the x and y axis test fitting for the z axis... everything looks good. sized up the pieces for cutting on my big acrylic sheet. thats all for tonight, the whole thing will be finished by tomorrow.
