Annoyed with always having to buy 12 “D” batteries for his BoomBox (which didn’t sound that great), the guy behind the BoomCase company decided to build his own. Six years later, the business is booming, and with good reason. After all, who would’t want a one-of-a-kind speaker made from a vintage case?
The Signal Corps BoomCase ($575) you see here is one of the offerings. It used to be a US Army “Frequency Meter” box, but now it sports a 50 Watt amplifier, two 4″ full-range speakers and two vintage dome tweeters, delivering a full range sound in a compact steel case package that weights in at 6lbs. The self-powered speaker packs a Lithhium Battery (18+ hours of life per charge), comes with battery charger & audio cable, and works with any device with a headphone output (e.g., phone, tablet, computer). For an extra $45 you can get Bluetooth Connectivity for wireless play, while $40 will buy you a removable shoulder strap, making it easier to haul this bad-boy to your next party site. Handmade in California, USA, by the guys who brought us the Prospector.
