Mr. Simo makes high quality portable suitcase speakers. Inspired by flea markets in Sacramento, Mr. Simo’s boom cases are highly sought after. These vintage suitcase boom boxes are self powered portable stereo systems that last 10+ hours on a charge. They are compatible with any device with a headphone plug. Mr. Simo’s boom cases are undeniably brilliant, but being hands-on DIY types, you can imagine how excited we were to find a site dedicated to helping you build your own.
When building your own portable stereo system there are a few things to think about. For instance, Mr. Simo’s boom cases are mainly mono instead of stereo. If you’re looking to build your own suitcase stereo you could take speakers from an old 3 way floor model and put them in a suitcase with an amplifier and power source.
This is perhaps not the easiest DIY but that’s why we were so excited to find the site DIY portable audio which goes into details about key factors such as power sources and amplifiers.
What do you think, is this something worth trying at home? Definitely let us know if you do attempt it!
