    ice chest boom box "the cooler cooler"

    Post by KingLionel666 on Mon Jun 13, 2011 6:09 am

    Start out with all the materials laid out.



    Mocking up the holes to be cut for the speakers, one on the front one on the back.



    Hole cut and all the foam removed...pain in the ass part.



    Test fitting for second wall hole.



    Hole cut, speaker now sitting flush.



    One side down.




    I'll finish the other side tomorrow, had a BBQ so only got one side done. My build consists of:

    2 6x9 JVC speakers
    240w amp
    Lawn Battery
    Miscellaneous wiring
    On/off switch
    RCA to aux plug
    Medium sized cooler

    Total so far I have about $150 into the project. Not bad considering they go for 300+.

    Started the wiring portion, just zip tying and organizing for a clean look when its all done. An ice chest wire tuck lol. It will be all loomed and heat shrunk where necessary.

    Cutting the wires and figuring out best routes for them to keep it clean. I've seen lent where they just have wires everywhere and didn't take the time to cut them to proper length.

    Only function is to play music while floating, however, if I had a bigger cooler I could split it 50/50, just need a barrier so no condensation builds up.

    More progress today, cut open the other side



    Front mounted



    Rear mounted



    Both in place, don't mind the wire, it will be cut to length after I mount the amp.

    Upon leaving their market place in my carriage, I spied a ruffian assaulting a fellow philistine. One wore the crest of the house of Lycos, the other, the House of Navid. Ancient rivals dating back to the age of dragons. Their swords clashed, children screamed, and thatch-roof cottages burned. Even their very shadows were locked in combat. The lighter fellow succumbed to the might of the moor of the House of Navid. His blows were just. His skills were unmatched.
    I wished to help the man from the House of Lycos but my fencing was not on par to that of the moor. It is my wish no one ever crosses his path. The events that transpired today will fuel the war of the Houses."

    Finished for now. I still have to loom the wires and put in a switch. I also want to make a wall in the corner so it can hold some drinks.

    I also added two latches on the outside, because when this thing is full blast the bass rattles the top of the ice chest so the latches keep the rattling away for a smooth sound.
