Ammo Can BOOM Box

This is my rendition of a simple portable boom box using the Dayton Audio DTA-2 amp module, a .50cal ammo can and some 4'' 2-way speakers. The battery life of this thing is crazy, I've used it for well over 60 hours without needing to recharge it. Although its a little heavy I take this thing everywhere.
