Needs a new battery every other year or so, but it can also be run while plugged in (using a battery maintainer). I've been toying with the idea of building a bigger one with more power, but this one gets the job done pretty well, so I haven't messed with it yet.
Hey Tex, that`s a neat idea! Next time maybe you could use a Jensen waterproof marine radio like I have in my boat and you`ll have an all weather rockin` station!

That is a COOL boom box, Texas A&M, but how could a Texas Aggie settle for Blue and White? If you build a bigger one make sure it is Maroon. Or, if you want a really, really cool color just make it UT Burnt Orange!!!!

Do they make outdoor speakers for campers?
I just saw that Camping world (I think) has some wireless rock speakers on sale... they might be to your liking...

Couldn't find a maroon cooler that was the right size. I went with a standard car stereo for cost savings and installed a marine cover. It keeps the water out when the lid is closed... just gotta remember to close the lid before you hose it down! If I build another one, the head unit will be completely enclosed, and I will use a wired remote on the outside of the cooler for the controls.
