    Hello all!

    Couple of days of holiday and I already got bored. What to do? A new version of ghettoblaster! My goal is to make new version 2kg lighter and couple of decibels louder than the 2010 years model.


    Goal specifications:
    -8kg weight
    -roughly 99db/W sensitivity, atleast on some frequencies ;D

    Here's the old blaster:

    This time I want a bit military styled look, so it will be edgy and boxy. To cut the weight down from 10kg I'll be using 4mm plywood for the base instead of old versions 9mm thickness. 8" drivers will be updated to 10" fullranges 97dB/W each. First sketch:

    Here's a later 3d-render which should visualize my idea of the looks better. It has 4 detachable battery modules, two on both ends. Modules will have battery voltage displays.

    BUILDING STARTS:

    First parts glued:

    I will keep you updated of the progress, thanks for reading!

    After seeing all your blasters I'm really thinking of building one myself. Anyway, your 2010 model looks awesome and I can't wait until this is finished! :thumb:

    Sorry for the cellphone pics. Drivers in test use, total weight 5kg (drivers 1,5kg each and the wood box 2kg). I'm really satisfied with the weight at the moment.
