SUPER CUSTOM BUILD FOR EVO PDX!!!
This crazyness right here is soon to be installed up on a wall at the beautiful new retail space on MLK in S.E. Portland for EVO, a very outstanding Ski/Snowboard/Skate/Wakeboard/Apparel/Accessory/Art/Lifestyle company based on Seattle.
The CEO/Owner, Bryce is a friend of mine, and we came up with this idea for the store and just ran with it.
These 6 boxes are running off a vintage mid-1970’s Kenwood KR-4600 Solid State Receiver and the music will be fed to it via the in-store wireless Sonos system.
The boxes were just tested through the receiver and they sound absolutely fantastic. All are wired around 8-16 ohms so when running together in parallel they provide the optimum resistance for the warm sounding vintage Kenwood electronics.
Make sure if you are in Portland OR any time after late October during their their grand opening, you stop by. Check out the store and take a look at this ridiculously awesome wall display by The Suitcase Soundsystem.

This vintage Samsonite suitcase is small but mighty!
Two 6.75” Rockford Fosgate Woofers provide plenty of bass and are paired with two mylar dome tweeters. The grills and the port are custom painted “antique white” to match the contrasting handle.
