I recently decided to build a custom bluetooth boombox that looked like the rear end of a super car. I didn't want it to look exactly like a current supercar, so I looked at some that I really liked and then added my own flare to it. Here are some quick notes about it.


  • Kerf to get Curves and cuto down weight
  • Exhaust actually Ports the Speaker to 65 Hz
  • Spoiler/Wing is the Handle
  • LED Brake Lights
  • Seperate Right and left Chambers
  • Custome LR2 Crossover with Zobel and L-pad
  • Removable Rear Pannel
  • Custom 12v Battery Pack
  • Mettallic Auto Paint

Overall, the cost of materials wasn't much, but it was time consuming. Especially since I had never quite made anything like this. I learned a lot, like I probably will not make another one, haha. Not because of the sound, it sounds great! Just because of the amount of work that went into it. I'll leave you with a video for now and update this with some pictures too.



So now that you've seen it. What type of car does it remind you of?

Thank you! I have been tinkering with the idea for a while, but never really did anything with it. Then the right opportunity came up and I decided, why not. It was a lot more work than I originally planned and ran into quite a few unforseen issues. All in all, I was happy with the results. Especially the sound quality. Oh my it sounds great! Looks like it's time to start bringing it places :)
