I'm a college student and have been looking for a little project to keep myself busy when I'm not nose-deep in text books. I recently bought two x-mini 2 capsule portable speakers. For their size, they are actually somewhat impressive, sounding better and louder than most similar, pre-fab systems I've heard. I do like them a lot, but I have been wondering if the concept can be applied to a DIY system, with higher quality components to sound better?
I've been looking around on www.partsexpress.com to get ideas of what I could use. So far, I figure I could use a pair of 2in or 3in full range speakers (maybe dayton audio or tang band), power them with a mini t-amp, and rig it up to a rechargeable battery system. I'm sure I can fabricate some sort of housing for it all too. Do you guys think this could work? Any ideas/suggestions?
