    Hi all, 

    I’m in the process of converting an old aeroplane drinks trolley/Bev cart into a speaker. I have 2 ‘Bose Ceiling’ speakers that I’m fitting to the unit. However, my electronics, let alone audio electronics are lacking. What I want to be able to do is have a Bluetooth system so its portable, but also can be powered by the mains too if it static. I’d like an amplifier to control bass/treble/volume, have battery storage, mains powered, and even some sort of display system to show battery level… 

     

    I’ll be making a frame inside the trolley out of MDF, but would you suggest a hole at the back? Sound suppression inside? And any guidance on the electronics would be greatly appreciated. I’m aiming this at the high end scale, so quality speaker and quality components. 

     

    I welcome any exchange of help. 

     

    Thanks

    Marc

    Marc I’d be happy to help you with this. It sounds like a great project. I’ll link some products down below a little later today or tomorrow as well as get you a wiring diagram. I wouldn’t personally port those speakers. They’re designed to be in a large cavity just like you’re going to have. So there’s no sense in making any changes to that. But what you’re talking about is definitely doable and something I’ve done fairly often. Maybe not to it airplane trolley, but that’s what makes yours so unique.  I’m definitely going to have to subscribe to this topic.
