I'm looking for some ideas. I have a design for a small 1w s-s practice amp and I want to build it into a very small speaker case. I had originally intended to build the speaker cabinet from wood but it would be much better if I could find a small, stiff enclosure that could be applied to this project. It has to hold a 5 1/4" (133mm) speaker. I looked at some Rubbermaid boxes at WalMart but didn't see one suited. Any novel ideas?

1. At a garage sale I saw a little old electric heater, 20s or 30s vintage, mounted into a pressed-sheet-metal case that looked much like an old table radio. The heating elements were mounted behind slots punched/bent in the front of the case. I thought, "That could be a guitar amp."
2. A fifties/sixties table radio or clock radio from the local thrift shop.
3. A rectangular briefcase or other small luggage; unused space could store cords.

Last week I read an article in alt.guitar.amps by Andy Fuchs about using PVC pipe for a powered stage monitor. Look for the subject 'Re: Stage Monitors'. Let me know if you have trouble finding it and I'll send you a copy.

That's interesting... I could get some 6" schedule 40 pvc and mount it in the end. Hmm, there's a pipe place just down the street. Thanks for the tip.

Hammond Mfg. in Canada have a plastic case subdivision and have all sorts of interesting shapes and sizes.
Check this site and follow the links.

Let's try that again.
Cause it didn't work the first time.

Hello, Jack. I once (many moons ago) built a crystal radio in one of those square clear plastic cubes that you put pictures in, I think they were about five inches per side. If they're still available, you might want to consider one of those. Gives a chance for others to see great workmanship!
