  • Overnight Sensations Boom Box

    I had a friend ask me to build him a boom box. He said he wanted it to have a full sound but didn't want it to be too large. I had recently built a set of the Overnight Sensations and I figured the bass would be sufficient. I incorporated the Lepai 2020a with 5a PS. He said he didn't need battery power since he just wanted to use it in his home. It turned out pretty well. It sounds nice and he said it was just what he wanted. I have to mention this build was influenced by Gordy's Madeleine and bolland83's Sprite build, thanks guys!

      Very nice smooth finish. Is that paint, duratex, truck bed liner, or something else? I can't tell from the pics.

        Very nice job, Jeff.

        Do you have any pictures of the insides?

          The paint is Valspar satin black latex enamel. I rolled it on. I first put on some Rustoleum oil based, it went on like glue. I sanded it all off and went with the Valspar, much nicer paint.

              Excellent execution. I love it! I especially love how you integrated the amp and its controls with minimum headache.

                Thanks Paul. Next on the build list is a pair of your Classix II's for my brother in law.

                  What a great build! I really like the way the amp is mounted. OS boom boxes never get old.

                    Very clean. Can I be your friend and perhaps get one of these too?

                      Thanks Jeff. Do the ports go through 2 walls on their way out? The amp is inset, but your picture of the inside only shows a straight wall at the back.

                        Haha! Sure, send me the parts and I'll get right on it!

                          Yes, the ports do go through 2 walls. I don't have a photo of it, but here's one from Gordy's build that's similar.Click image for larger version
