Default Crecendo 'Portable' BoomBox

Probably kind of weird but I am making a somewhat portable boom box for my older brother's upcoming birthday. It will run off wall power and run about 300ish watts.
Also you may be wondering why not use a standard home amp, well I got a good deal on these to make it worth the money.

Will be built to be taken outside. I have a long beefy power cord I'm putting on it.

Also I guess I was holding my phone the wrong way/upside down >.> not retaking any pictures sorry

Items:

Precision Power Black Ice 340.4
360 Watt AC to DC converter
2 Crecendo 6.5" PWX
2 Memphis 50 watt tweeters
Clarion EQ
2 5" fans
A few RCA cables, aux cables, etc











Also this guy so it can be plugged into a TV or projector if desired



There will be a removable back, also the extra space is for a subwoofer amp later on

Thanks, hope it's pretty loud for its size. Mainly I just hope he enjoys it

He has never been into audio that much, but he loved hearing my old systems so I bet he will appreciate it.

Here's a size comparison since I guess I didn't explain what I meant by 'portable'
It's not an old boom box you carry on your shoulder, we have headphones. This is a all in one unit for maybe right outside your house , tailgating , hook it up to your tv etc. it will have handles on it for easy carrying. For some reason a lot people don't like what I'm doing because of its size.




Also go figure that my local shop sold me a blown tweeter. Now I have to make sure I get a tweeter that fits.

I don't know why but I always use lots of caulk everywhere... Also going to exchange the tweeters today so hopefully I can get a tweeter with the same mounting specs, I don't know how common a tweeters mounting specs are similar so I haven't cut the other hole.



Also I'm making this completely out of leftover wood so a couple pieces are an unusual fit/cut since I didn't have a whole lot



more sanding in my future...

I've never wrapped anything before so I don't know. Yeah it's big/heavy though, but I wanted to make something that would be loud enough for anything it is going to be used for, which I don't know what he will use it for so just make it loud.

He sometimes goes camping and they usually have music there but it's not very loud at all to hear. Our family has a pool so I would figure he would take it there and play it.

Also this isn't a put on your shoulder boombox. It just has the same look.

Not much of an update, but they are sooo good looking for some reason and I figured out my pictures are weird because I have my phone in orientation lock and it apparently messes with the pictures even though it doesn't look like it at the time

Just doing some testing to see if any polyfill is needed, will have to have both sides in though to finish it though.
