I must admit, I am getting to the age where I will soon be joining the ranks of the AARP. This being said, I had never heard of a “Thumper” (except for that cute little bunny), until my recently graduated oldest son decided to have a go at making them.  What does one do after 4+ years of private university education and a BSEE ?…  You make an upcycled vintage suitcase boombox! 🙂 Here are the finished products; one for himself and his brother. And the  small  vintage train case will be made into a boombox for his younger sister – hopefully before she goes off to college.


The finished system is really quite amazing.  They just hook up their smartphones, and the sound is awesome! I can’t wait to see what older son will be able to accomplish after earning his Masters 😉
