If you’re sick and tired of replacing the 12 “D” batteries in your boombox, you’re not the only one. Back in 1999, the BoomCase company was founded with a goal to build portable battery-powered speaker systems and they’ve been doing it ever since. Their latest product is the Signal Corps by BoomCase. This speaker system is made from a US Army Signal Corps Frequency Meter box. All BoomCases are handmade so each item is unique and slightly different from the other.
The Signal Corps by BoomCase features two full-range speakers that measure 4 inches in diameter, a 50-watt amplifier, as well as two vintage dome tweeters. The case is made from steel and it’s very compact. The dimensions of this boombox are 8″ x 10″ x 3″ and it weighs only 6 lbs. For easy carrying, you can opt for an additional shoulder strap ($40). The setup comes with rechargeable lithium batteries and a battery charger. You can also get a free battery meter.
The frequency response of the Signal Corps BoomCase is 70 Hz – 20,000 Hz while with the playtime of more than 18 hours on a single charge. This speaker system also comes with an audio cable and you can connect it to any device that has a headphone output, including your phone, tablet and computer. For a wireless experience, you can get Bluetooth connectivity if you’re willing to pay an additional $45.
If a unique, portable, vintage-style speaker system is what you’re looking for, you won’t go wrong with the Signal Corps BoomCase. Its steel box looks like an ammo box so if you’re into army stuff, you’ll love its design. In addition, you can easily carry it around to take the party with you wherever you go. Without the need to constantly change the batteries and with a prolonged battery life, you’ll be able to enjoy quality sound even longer.
