If speakers designed in the conventional manner bore you, you might want to take a look at what Floyd Davis IV has done with his Gentleman’s Boomboxes series. He originally started out creating sound systems out of old luggages but has recently turned to toolboxes instead (as pictured above). While we can’t really speak for the sound quality of the Toolbox Boombox since it is housed in a metal enclosure (wood seems to be the preferred material of choice when it comes to audio), it is a pretty novel idea and its design appears to be quite interesting.

According to Floyd, the boombox is powered by a Pyle Pro stereo amplifier, with the speakers bought second hand from a thrift shop and with plywood being used as the front panel. Unfortunately it does not appear that Floyd is selling his creation since his website does not appear to have any sort of online store, but we’re sure if you really wanted one for yourself, you might be able to work something out with him.

However if you’re more of the hands-on type of guy, you could try making one yourself by watching the video below of Floyd appearing on the Craftsman Experience teaching the audience how to make a toolbox boombox for themselves.
