  • PE kit bluetooth build.

    I bought the 30 watt 3" FR ammo can BT kit, the only one in stock. I blame Tom Zarbo for this. You sure get a lot of stuff. I'm thinking wood grain retro vintage look. Heads up, no free shipping when you order batteries.

    Maybe add an analog clock insert, Klockit has many.

        I kept looking at your projects, and felt a great need to make a little box of my own.

      I guess I'm guilty too, but who's to blame is likely myself. OSFA was my attempt...

        I want to build a Bluetooth speaker,actually a few,I do have some good speakers,JBL,pioneer. Afew others,I have two elite 400 loudspeakers that would not work with the regular jacks not the three pin type cables.i hard wired some speaker wire and now they work.is it possible to make these Bluetooth? The JBL I got from a lil boombox, pioneers lil boombox also placed them inside of a Randall speaker box.the speakers from the Randall box were cracked and I was curious about building my first speaker..it sounds pretty good!can I make these Bluetooth?

          There are discrete bluetooth receivers available. Look.

        Lowdown, that's a VERY nice stereo pair (of images)!

          Something like this. Either an analog clock insert, or a small flat digital LED display, more practical but less vintage. I like the bar grills, I can do those and hide the speakers. Grill cloth would be nice, but finding a tiny scrap of vintage grill cloth is problematic.Control panel recessed into the top.

            The panel, amp and battery boards assembled. The component leads are long enough to mount the various LEDs, sockets and switches anywhere. The long leads are curled up in this instance.

              I did a ps95 and peerless 830946 retrofit in an old radio/record player and he used vintage grill cloth in it..... Really set it off....

                  Actually, vintage grill cloth is available in small pieces. I may change my concept.

                I drew a plan for a conventional low, wide box. But, after looking at Joey Butts' vintage box I may go that way. General arrangement, no turntable. We'll see.

                    I could do this with the tools I have. Dummy knobs (not my usual style), a digital clock where the radio dial is, and controls recessed into the top.

                      I bought a vintage AM radio dial on ebay. 1" x 8".

                        1/2" x 8" oak and 1/4" pegboard for the retro back panel. Covered with "acoustic" foam to yield an aperiodic vent. Wow.

                        2 drawer pulls for knobs. I'll pick some odd retro color for them after I pick the grill cloth.

                        Since the drivers are less than a foot apart (projected), I'll probably just have one big enclosure.
