  • Box Design and Battery Charging

    Folk,

    I have an idea to build another boombox. I think I am going to re-task the Sprite I just built to be a table top radio and start the plans for something different that I could carry and use at a campsite or fishing or what ever.

    I want to design the box with all the dimensions and come up with a battery and charging system.

    What do you guys use to design a box. Not speaker box design, but something that I could use for the sketch up?

    I also will need a 35 ah battery and something to charge with. I was thinking about the following PSU. The thing that I was not sure of is if it would over charge the battery or not. Would I need something else to prevent damage to the battery?

    Thanks in advance!

      Msibilia (Mark) had a pretty cool solar powered octagon boombox with a
      small amp that sounded pretty impresive at last years NY/Diy event. I am not sure if
      he started a thread or documented it, but there maybe some info on it from the NY/Diy
      2013 thread. He also said it sounded and worked well out in the open.Not real small
      though (speaker cab) but you could use his concept with other speakers.
