Quick guide for the search

  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

[size=1]Hallo Guys!
I am going to build this big boombox. You know, a wood case, with a solar system on top.

i have alot of questions! i have never buildet something like this before, but i play music, so i know how to solder, and plus to plus and so on.
I will use it on Roskilde Festival, so it has to play loud!

1) it has to have a solar system on the top. ive been searching fore this in a while, and i found this solar cell. is that good enough ore? if you have any other suggestions, please share them. http://www.conrad.nl/ce/nl/product/855360/;jsessionid=7158F09F859B27BE5D888F51A719560C.ASTPCCP16

2)The battery. i was thinking of using a 12 V car battery. do i have to know more about wich one i choose, or is a 12 V batteri just a 12 v batteri? what about Ampaire? is that importen? do you suggest a good batteri? it may not run out of power, so the solar sytem has to keep up, even on a cloudy day!

3)The speakers: i have this boombox. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/762732-REG/JVC_RVNB70B_RV_NB70B_Kaboom_Portable_Boom.html
I was thinking of using some of the speakers from there, and some other parts if you suggest that!!? maybe use the bass, and the 2 front speakers. and the buy another pair of speakers, and some tweeters. is that possible? these are the speakers i was thinking of buying: http://elektronik-lavpris.dk/product_info.php?products_id=31986
or should i use some others, remember it has to play loud, but not like it hurts your ears loud. just loud! if it is not these i should by, do you have another suggestion?

4)The Amplifire: i was thinking of using this Amp6-BASIC is that good? and is it able with that many speakers? if not, should i buy another amp, or just dont use the small speakers, and use another pairs of speakers?

5)Is there anything else i need? like converter from the solar sytem to the batteri, ore anything else? ipod converters? it would be nice, if it could charge my ipod meanwhile, so if it could have a normal AC/DC plug, so i could plug it in would be nice!

Thanks alot for you help! i really preciate it! sorry my english..! [/size]icon_confused.gif
