Create a portable stereo from a vintage suitcase

Portable, loud and fashionable. Take a vintage suitcase and install a set of speakers, passive crossovers, an amplifier, and a couple of rechargeable batteries. Now you have a portable, albeit heavy, stereo that will make your ears bleed.

I got the idea for the stereo from a handful of Internet vendors that make custom, build-to-order jamboxes. They sell them for stupefying amounts of money, often for $800 or more (U.S.). In some extreme cases, the product costs over $2,000. I liked the idea and the sense of profit! I also had the know-how, so I decided to build one for half the cost.
