  • Help - The Ultimate Ammo Box Build

    Hey guys,

    I just bought an ammo box from harbor freight for $5. I have a few of the Tectonic 2" BMR Speakers and a 4" HIVI B4N woofer. I was planning to use these in a 2.1 setup in the ammo box. I hooked it up and am so far pleased with the sound. I did use a BSC on the B4N's. I am now in the planning/make it awesome stage. I need some help with some ideas or maybe things I haven't thought of yet. Here are a few things I am thinking of doing:

    1. FM tuner (so I can take it to the drive-in).
    2. Bluetooth
    3. 3.5mm Jack
    4. USB charging port on the inside ( so you can charge your phone on the go)
    5. Green LED's on the bottom that can beat to the music with an on off switch
    6. Lithium charge pack that can be charged from the outside of the box
    7. 2.1 Speakers with BSC's on the BMR's
    8. Main, subwoofer and speaker volume knobs
    9. Battery Level Indicator on the side, so you know how charged your battery is

    What do you guys think? Is there anything I am forgetting? Something I haven't mentioned I should add? I plan to build this on my YouTube Channel, so if there is something you want me to add, that you would liek to see, let me know. I am just trying to think of some cool ideas, that I may not have thought of yet. Thanks!

    If you go with 2.1, are you going to make the woofer a separate chamber from the mids? I might just skip the woofer on account of the small enclosure and use a couple mids with a port.

      I was thinking of making separate champers for the full range speakers and using the rest of the space for the B4N's. Although, I ended up having to make seperate enclosure when I used a much flimsier box on my dewalt build. So I am a little concerned that it may flex too much.

        I did check out the internal dimensions with WinISD and I happen to have a spare port lying around. I may just go ahead and port the B4N. It actually gives me a little better low end response as well.

          I would love to build a project identical to this. I am fairly new to diy speakers but for a Bluetooth speaker I would love to be able to use a power tool battery instead of an internal battery. Possibly take apart a charger and connect it to one side of the can then it's as easy as swapping battery's that are already on charge. Awesome build and I probably build my own once your finished.

            That's a cool idea. I know DeWalt 12v batteries would typically be a good way to go. They are everywhere and you can usually pick them up gretty cheap. Plus being 12v, they work with just about anything.
