Take the party with you by building your own boomcase. It’s an amplifier and set of speakers built into luggage. It uses an audio jack to connect to your favorite music player, and with a bit of added protection — like grills for those speakers — it could still be gently used to transport your wardrobe.
A 1960’s suitcase was mutilated for this build. [Jay] must have already had it on hand because combined with some used parts he claims to have only spent $50 total. After trying out a few different speaker orientations on a piece of cardboard he covered the outside of the case in blue painter’s tape and started cutting holes. The amp he chose has a nice face plate which happens to fit nicely on the top side of the case. For now he’s powering it with a 10,000 mAh (ie: 10 Ah) portable device recharging battery. But as you can hear in the demo after the break this seems to have no problem supplying the system with enough power.

7 seconds of that video was enough to make me want to stick a solder iron in my ears!
I like the build tho! Speaker grilles – agreed :)
Can’t really tell if it’s distorting the music at all… cause the stupid song is already warped.
Really cool! Wouldn’t want the luggage handlers throwing that around though.
Drill small holes ,lets the sound out. Mount the speakersfrom behind..grills not needed….wheresthecursorIcan’ttypewithoutonethis is aproblempleaseexcusetherunonbutisIcnsomethingisbroken!!!!!!myonly gripe about thenewtemplate
Rmember, It isn’t actual luggage.
Build is nice, but it’s really just a boom box but bigger, I honestly don’t see this as an improvement.
… its in case your going to “start an outdoor (travelling) rave” …
if you happen to be a mod (social group type) (think Elwood and the blues brothers)
… u can NOT be seen with a backpak or “ghetto”-anything!
a suitcase suits perfectly XD
Should be called the BaseCase!
…..or BAsscase but someone might mistake it for a tackle box.
Here was my attempt before the summer..
It featured over 1000w worth of components and a 15″ subwoofer in the rear!
Does it take a rechargeable battery?
Another take on the same idea :)
