Outdoor speaker with amplifier designed tweaker has goal on Kickstarter




A project for an outdoor speaker of three Danes has achieved its goal within four hours on Kickstarter. The design for the audio portion of the speaker comes from AccuSafe, the Dutch company of tweaker and coffin builder wesleytjuh radio.

The Sound Boks promises to be the loudest speaker that runs on batteries. He comes up 130,5dB, although the Danes on Kickstarter say he goes up to 119dB. The loud noise does reduce the battery life. At 119dB, the speaker for outdoor use, the size of a potato crate to eight hours of use on one charge, at a lower volume goes that up to thirty hours. The Danish manufacturer has two batteries along. The project went live Wednesday on Kickstarter and achieved its goal of $ 100,000 within four hours and is now at nearly $ 250,000, with more than five hundred backers.

The Danish project has quite a Dutch touch. The Sound Boks made amplifier is designed by the Dutch AccuSafe, the company include chest radio enthusiast and tweaker wesleytjuh. He was also anxiously Wednesday to refresh the Kickstarter page. “It was the first thing I did every morning. Fortunately, they were soon over.”

The developers of the Sound Boks came to AccuSafe through a tip from a coffin also Danish radio enthusiast, who knew the Dutch a forum. “That Dane is a legend in this world. He contacted the makers of Sound Boks to work and wanted to cooperate with us. Therefore, the founder called us suddenly and he wanted to talk. It was quickly over large numbers.” The Dutch get a percentage of the revenue from the license because they have done the design. “The production we do not do that Flextronics.”

AccuSafe currently working on the third revision of their design, the amplifier should automatically turn itself off when there is no input. “They are still little things and if that is done, our job is done.”

Sound Boks might just be the first in a series of similar products. “There is a dsp and it’s easy to make a smaller version, because it is mostly software. In the design, we do not much tinkering.” Sound Boks want to deliver this spring.

A few years ago wesleytjuh was the focus of an episode of the Gathering of Tweakers, in which he talks about his passion for coffin radios.
