Ammo Can Speaker Kit product has been discontinued

Alas, it is no more.

Why is this discontinued?

Al Gore, inventor of the Internet, was throwing a rollerskating disco inferno in our warehouse last night and decided to invent pocket-sized Man Crates by cutting into eighths our entire supply of Snack Sensei Crates.

Back in Black

This ammo can’s original contents once produced enough sound to deafen its owner several times over. Now, he’ll get to enjoy restoring explosive sound to this explosion-proof canister. Most quality speakers are either leashed to an outlet or too delicate to take anywhere. This ammo can speaker system is indestructible and can go wherever the party goes, or better yet, bring the party wherever it is.

Our first version of this indestructible speakers was a huge success, but we weren’t satisfied. With the Ammo Can Speaker Kit 2.0, we’ve kept the best and improved on the rest so he can haul amazing, indestructible sound from the beach to the backcountry.

All Assembly Required

The NATO spec .30 cal Ammo Can is water resistant, virtually indestructible, and now in a sharp black finish. We’ve done the hard work breaching the sides to make room for the incoming speakers, but he’ll have his hands full designing layout and drilling holes for the other inputs.

The upgraded JAB2-50 Amplifier Board and 4” audio speakers deliver high-quality sound from compact equipment. The included power adapter can be charged for hours of high-powered playback, and the improved bluetooth chip and auxiliary input jack offer two ways to rock out.

Build-A-Boom Box

All of the necessary instructions and mounting supplies for building this powerhouse music player can be found in the Man Crates instructional guide. Most importantly, this guide also includes two high-quality curated playlists of songs from the greatest decade of them all...the 80s.

From supply drop to beat drop, the new-and-improved Ammo Can Speaker Kit 2.0 harnesses the power of jammunition to brings the party wherever it goes.

    Booming Sound from an Ammo Can

    Received this kit from coworkers while recovering from a motorcycle collision. It was easy to set up and assemble. Took me 3-1/2 to 4 hours from start to finish. Charged the batteries all night before running the amps on battery power. Music played from line-in and Bluetooth connections. Only discrepancy was the charging and Bluetooth leds were switched on the connection diagram. Sound quality is great!

    Good service, fun gift

    My wife gave this to me as a Christmas gift but I didn't have time to put it together until a few months later. I ran into the same problem as others with the Bluetooth and Charging LEDs being reversed from the diagram, but it was easy to fix and it would seem like it would be easy for the manufacturer to include a card with the correction in future orders. Then again, just figuring that out was kind of fun. The charging LED just stays on but the batteries charge ok. An improvement would be to put a grill over the speakers to protect them but I will probably figure something out for that. I had a problem with the Bluetooth connecting and the company promptly replaced the part, which was great. Overall it was a fun, thoughtful, and useful gift that has made some of my buddies envious.

    Fun build. Some problems

    The build is fun. The drilling, the amateur electronics, the independent design.

    Unfortunately there are a few problems. The LED indicators for the Bluetooth and Charging indicator are reversed in the instructions. So if you want the blue light to be Bluetooth don't look at the instructions, turn the board over and plug it into the port that says "BT." The board maker, Sure, also got it wrong, so whatever. But I also have been troubleshooting why my batteries won't charge and I can't come up with anything. The charging LED never blinks. The system dies as soon as I unplug it. The problem is likely in the JAB2 board. The soldering is pretty sloppy and there is at least one youtube video solving another weird feedback glitch by removing an auxiliary input wire.

    Great, but..

    My husband works in electrical engineering and had zero problems putting this together. However, he's had no luck getting the batteries to charge. He has to keep it plugged in all the time. It does sound great and has a fair Bluetooth connection, so it's still a nice gift for the music/tinkerer in your life.

    Got this as a gift from my best friend, and it’s a great gift and cool concept; however, it needs further instructions! There are BASIC details about how to put this thing together, but I’ve never put together many electronic items and this one was quite a challenge. I’m sure I’m not the only one, but additional details would help greatly.
