Finally completed the V1 Pi Outdoor Music Player. This is an old power tool case modified to mount/contain:
- Speakers mounted on the top/face.
- A 3Watt 5Volt stereo audio amp.
- A 20,000mAh portable battery pack.
- A Raspberry Pi B+ with a Wifi dongle, running mpd and ympd.
Sound is loud enough for a family BBQ and decent quality. The stereo amp has a volume control to allow adjustment. The wifi dongle (and ympd) allow the music and playlists to be controlled via a phone or tablet.
A full write up on the project will be coming shortly…The full project write up can be found here
