Vintage Bluetooth Speakers – New Tunes, Old Soul

By Neokentin

Would you like to see Bluetooth speakers with all of the style and functionality, and none of the environmental impact?
Mixing 21st-century technology and mid-century design, we are producing bespoke speakers that are not only beautiful, they are likely the most environmentally friendly Bluetooth speakers in the world. From top to bottom we have worked to offer all of the benefits of a new Bluetooth speaker, without the environmental impact. Our speakers re-use the cases and speakers from unwanted vintage radios. We add a new circuit-board incorporating 8W amplifier and Bluetooth 4.0 receiver, and provide a USB cable allowing the speaker to be powered by your existing phone charger or as a portable speaker with your own power bank.

Bluetooth Speaker from an Old Radio

By Neokentin

I just found this old Soviet transistor radio, and it was in not working condition, so I decided to convert it into something useful instead of throwing it out as an e-waste object. I searched a lot about the topic, and I tried to create a Bluetooth speaker from it.
I’d like to show you how I saved and gave a second life to this guy! Hope you like this idea and, you can upgrade and reuse your radio or anything else! If you have a radio and want to be converted, just let me know!

By Anthonysbeatsboombox

How many of you have an old suitcase covered in dust in your garage or that of your grandparents but, due to attachment you can’t part ways? And then there some of you who couldn’t wait to drop off that old suitcase at your local goodwill. Well, either way Anthony will find that old suitcase and turn it into a traveled piece of up cycled piece art that pairs as a new traveling companion and an instant party starter. He creates portable, rechargeable multi functional boomboxes from mainly suitcases but also trunks, tool chest and more. His creativity is inspired by his desire to bring back the old-school type of fun where people just dance and have fun anywhere. As a kid he discovered his talent out of the lack of being able to afford a store bought boombox. His natural ability excited people with the clear crisp sounds and creative way of taking something old and making it new.
