Jukebox Diablo

I was the winner of a Pyle 'Mechless' car stereo (PLR34M) from a local church raffle recently. I have a decent stereo in my daily driver, so i took inspiration from the other "PE Project Gallery Designers" and built the "Jukebox Diablo".

The car stereo is basically an MP3 module with a AM/FM tuner and small amplifier all in one. The box is 1/2 inch plywood with a 1/2 inch thick extruded black plastic front. Dimensions are 20"L x 12"H x 10"D, The speakers are 'Boss Phantom Skull' 5.25 & 6.50. The tweeters are "Vifa" square frame 1" tweeters with a 3500hz capacitor and a 1 ohm 5 watt resistor crossover. The box is covered with Black Bronco vinyl Tolex, Peavey small rubber feet, Penn-Elcom cabinet corners and a 10 inch carry strap finish the outside. Red led volt meter and a blue skull switch accompany the front. The rear has two 1 inch ID X 4 inch long port tubes, along with a pair of Dayton gold binding posts for charging The 12 volt 12ah power supply battery inside the box below the mechless unit. The portable stereo weighs about 20 lbs. A full charge lasts about 6 hours on medium to high volume. No iPod needed because the tunes are all on a 16GB Secure Digital (SD) Card.
