    700 WLW Cincinnati. We could pickup WLW in Columbus where I grew up, day or night. My parents were from Cincinnati.

    I like the grill cloth too. What station do you have it tuned to?

    Thanks. Your comment earlier prodded me to look for vintage grill cloth.

    So, it seems sound is improving with the little drivers breaking in. I forgot the Bluetooth antenna. The connector is ridiculously small and insecure, needing silicon blobs to hold the antenna on.

    Unlike some chip amps that start distorting past 12 o'clock, this little board doesn't, pretty clear all the way up. It doesn't get that loud.

    If you want a fun project, this is it. Don't expect high fidelity. The control panel/amp board/battery board stack up is really elegant, save for that antenna. You can use the control panel or locate the various components anywhere, they all have generous leads.

    I'll post some pics after I get the fascia done. I think I accomplished a cartoonish vintage look. We'll see.

    Yeah, since I ignored vented/sealed volumes, I reckoned a leaky box was OK.

    Looks great as usual djg! I like the use of the pegboard with foam for venting.

    It's mostly done. I have to starch and iron the grill cloth to remove folds and install it. I'm leaving the back panels off until tomorrow to let the spray adhesive and silicon fumes dissipate.

    Works fine, sound quality about like a good quality table radio. Bluetooth to my Lenovo tablet playing Pandora. Sound improves with the back panels on.

    It's like that beautiful craftsmanship of the late 1800's again, man!
