What you'll need:
In just a few simple steps, your favorite Dremel Rotary Tool can transform a vintage suitcase into an amazing BoomBox! We found several tutorials online for getting the best sound out of your BoomBox though we recommend following your speaker's manufacturing instructions for wiring instructions.
For best results, we recommend using surface mount subwoofers, tweeter, and mids for your project.
Begin by measuring the diameter of the speaker from the inside lip. Divide the measurement in half to determine the radius of your circle. The radius will be the distance from the pin on your circle cutting guide to the center of your bit.
Create a mark at the center of where you'd like to place your main speaker. Mount the 561 Multipurpose Cutting Bit into your favorite Dremel Rotary Tool (we used the 3000 Series tool). Set your tool to high speed and, holding the tool perpendicular to your case, make a plunge cut into the mark. This hole will serve as your pilot hole for the Circle Cutting Guide.
Next, with your Circle Cutting Guide adjusted to your desired width per your measurements in step 1, place the guide pin in the pilot hole. Set your tool to high speed and plunge rotary bit into material - cutting in a clockwise motion.
Finally, place your speakers into their respective holes (you'll notice it will be a snug fit). Use appropriate size screws to secure each speaker to your suitcase.
Follow your speaker's manufacture instructions for wiring.
We bored out a hole at the bottom of our case to feed our power cable through. To do this, we secured the 117 High-Speed Cutting accessory into our 3000 tool, set the tool to high and board a hole roughly the diameter of the cable.
