When it comes to sustainability, most electronics don’t top the list. But classic stereo equipment? Now that’s a different tune. Partnering with local Portland artists and craftsmen, Case of Bass creates one-of-a-kind portable sound systems for aesthetic virtuosos who want their gear built to last. Combining art and science, classic speaker components and vintage luggage, this hand-built upcycled boombox ensures the best combination of beauty and pure sound. Carry Dexter—the first signature Googly Eye Cru case—only if you want ’em to hear you coming.
Features two 6.5" woofers, a pair of horn speakers, and a Tang Band full range driver used as a midrange speaker in the design and wiring (the crossover setting allocate those frequencies to that speaker). Equipped with a 100W amp, power supply, 3.5mm stereo input, on/off switch, and a volume control. Each case is wired with a battery system, which includes a robust nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) rechargeable battery pack and a smart charger. Battery life: 8–10 hours. Recharging time: 2–3 hours. Or use the included power cord to plug the case into a wall outlet. Connect the case to your mp3 player via the headphone jack with the included 3.5mm stereo cord. This product is crafted from repurposed vintage materials.
