A friend of mine, loves his Xbox. So I thought for his birthday I would make him some themed speakers. Originally, they were to be themed for his favorite game. After thinking about it for a while, I realized that favorite games change way too often. So instead, I decided I would make it themed for his favorite console, the Xbox, even if I still prefer Playstation. So that is how I came up with this custom creation. The base of it is Paul Carmody's sprite boombox. I just redesigned the size and used individual cabinets instead of a boom box. I also had to redesign the port. I made it rear firing and used PVC pipe for it. Anyway, this is the first speaker I design like this, so I would appreciate your thoughts. I designed an X on either side, to keep up with the theme. It is not perfect, but I learned a lot from it. And the best part, he loved them!

*P.S. I should mention i was very disappointed with the Xbox decals. They came from Ebay and were not at all as I expected. I almost took them off, but decided against it.
