custom project: A tale of two continents
Danny got in touch with At Large Audio after seeing one of our cases in Viva Magazine. His father had immigrated over from China and bought some amazing Vintage luggage with him. It was one of these pieces that Danny wanted At Large Audio to customise into a speaker system for him.
First we met with Danny to check out the case, determine if it was suitable to use as a speaker box and work out the specs Danny would like in the sound system. We decided on incorporating a nice big 12 inch speaker, Bluetooh and 3.5 connections with 10+ hours of battery life.
We sent Danny some options of speakers and designs for him to choose from (see designs below). When dealing with such a beautiful piece of family history, we wanted to make sure that Danny was involved in the design process and that the final piece would be something he would love for years to come.
Once Danny had chosen the design, we took it to the workshop and started on the build.
When cutting into the suitcase there was an amazing logo, stamped into the leather in the very middle of the front of the case (where we were putting the 12 inch speaker). We managed to save this piece and turned it into an ornamental luggage tag fixed to the main latch . A little piece of history that we managed to preserve.
All of the crossovers and internal audio switching components were custom made for this case, and the end result was a warm full sound in a beautiful vintage case. All finished and sealed up, we were ready to hand deliver this to Danny and for him to take home. He was completely stoked with out outcome. Especially with the badge, and the way we managed to keep the leather straps of the case.
This was a true collaborative project on a piece of history and the team at At Large Audio could not have been more proud to work on this with Danny.
