Arduino logics - Teeces v2

Yay! I did it!! I'm a total n00b when it comes to electronics and soldering, but after a bit of practice these came together without any hiccups. Anyone can do these. Now I'm just waiting for Teeces v3 boards to be released :D

Thank you Teeces and Joymonkey for your excellent work and help!!

Complete sound system

And here it is - boxes and all. The Sure 2x100w amp is fantastic! Bring on the imperial march :D

Here's the center vent speakers with the new boxes. Sound quality has improved. A lot!

I'm also making speaker boxes for the front Polk speakers (mounted onto the Com8 speaker plate - located behind the center vents) These tiny 3,5inch speakers are very good but really need to be enclosed for the sound to be right. The difference us very noticeable. Try it!

Here's a pic of the assembled box. Nice!

I found some other, bigger speakers that I might use behind R2s side vents. As many of you know speakers need to be in some kind of case to improve sound quality. I found some pieces of white plastic air duct piping thingies aswell as a 2mm white plastic cutting mat. Cut a little here, glue a little there and Robert's your mother's brother...
