The coach came to me with a few requests:
Needs to be mobile, loud and microphone input.
He showed me some examples of some mini coolers that had speaker holes cut into them and BAM, done.....well that's not what Trax Customs is about. He had no idea what I was doing, just knew what he'd be getting.....so if he was expecting a basic unit, he was MORE than surprised when he saw this :)
Took a basic large cooler and started cutting into it.
Made a mold of the front, then custom arranged the speakers so they'd cover a 130 degree angle in front of the cooler, as well as to properly fit them on that small of a footprint. Then I started cutting into the top to make the pro audio tweeters as integrated as possible.
Among other surprises, I molded in a removable solar panel charging system....so if the game is playing later or earlier in the day, they can remove it and angle it as needed to keep charging the system while it's not plugged into a 120v. Which is built into the system, and a simple plug into a wall outlet and the system will then be charged back up.
For control, I used a Dual Electronics headunit that has USB/iPod controls, front aux input, bluetooth, weather-band radio and rear mic input. A Blues Audio 4 channel amp was placed within the cooler to power the 8 speakers with 200 watts of pure power. A Sound Quest car audio battery was placed inside to power the system. Blues Audio woofers and Bass Inferno Pro Tweeters are what's cranking the tunes out. System internals are covered with a simple shelf with metal grill to allow proper air flow. Put a carbon fiber plastic panel with school Lacrosse logo in the center to tie everything together.
