yeah okay I'm going to be making a portable outdoor radio and in this case what I'm going to be doing is setting this up so I've been connected to my outdoor patio speakers basically what I'm going to use is this plastic container and I bought a Walmart for a battery it's a car battery container now the power supply 12-volt power supply from old discarded computer case and the
00:34
little car radio actually this is new that I never used I had it for a car that ended up selling so I have this laying around and you'll need some electrical tape pliers wire stripper a little bit of soldering and that's about it so since the last time what I've done is I cut out a hole here on the side of this plastic box to insert the casing
01:04
for my head unit for stereo on the inside I basically just cut piece of 2x4 just to give it a little bit of support in the bottom you could probably do some brackets or something like that but I'd really didn't want to put any holes on the side because I wanted to keep this as waterproof as possible but it's it's pretty strong in there it looks like it's going to work out pretty well just give you an idea what it's going to look like stick this in here so all those things gonna work out pretty well oh it's going to look at the cover
01:54
that's about it and then I also went and bought this waterproof cover it's like a marine cover that they use for boats for car stereos beige how since this is intended to be outdoors might be will refuel for some of you guys but it's going to work well for me because I'm going to keep this outdoors to run my outdoor stereo or outdoor speakers and it'll be something like that and I'll show you later on after that's installed and then what happens with this cover makes a waterproof and dustproof and I
02:26
just pop it open to be able to make the adjustments so the next thing I'm going to do is a lot these connectors you speaker terminal connectors I'm going to put those on either side here of this stereo which I'm going to do that maybe sideways and I'll be cutting those out and we'll see how that turns out okay so now what I'm going to do is I'm getting
02:59
ready to cut out the holes for these speaker terminals in the back of this it tells you what the cutout dementia supposed to be what I did was that has made a template of the entire size and then I also did the cutout of this template so that way it'll fit the hole that I'm about ready to cut out and so then what I did was I put masking tape so that way it'd be easier for me to be able to write and see where I'm getting
03:30
ready to cut and then I set this template up to basically figure out where I wanted the speaker location to be and speaker terminal and I mark the inside part and I did that on both sides and what I'm about to do is make the hole cut out here so that these terminals can fit any size and basically what I did in the front - I only used this chassis here for the template itself so I put the tape there I put the Tassie on there and then I marked a hole and that's what I figured out to do the cutout here so now about
03:59
to make the cutout here now you can see I already installed a stereo in here here's all the wiring inside actually works out okay I just got to figure out a way to keep this in place but so now what I'm going to do is I want to install this cover this marine cover and just going over the stereo and this is just like a sticker so that's a rubber gasket that I will stick on like that
04:31
and then I got some screws here that I will install over this and then out with that I'll be able to have a waterproof cover on the front so rather than bore you watching me stick some screws in this thing I'll get back to you got if I'm doing this okay so here is my finished product basically I installed this cover is the waterproof cover I was mentioning earlier if you see they also
05:02
put silicone sealant probably a little overkill on this thing on anything that I cut out so here are my speaker connections that I made and I put some sealant there just to be sure it's waterproof and this rubber antenna is a car antenna that it has got at the auto parts store and so and this is also sealed just to make it more waterproof and dustproof the cool thing about this particular battery case is that they
05:34
come already built in with vents and they're like two-inch overlaps so there's no way that water's going to be able to get inside but vent off the the heat that's put off from the CPU fan and the car stereo and that's about it so and if you get lucky enough that when you get your stereo you get one with a remote control on it you know makes it even more handy okay no swelling no that's about it you have any questions this asking
