Ok well v3 is for a buddy of mine and I am going to use the same cooler as tubintunes.

I will be useing one of the red igloo island breeze with the wheels in the back. 

I am removing the handles and replaceing them with 2 pyle hydra 300watt 6x9's.

In the front I am going to be placing 2 250watt 7.7" pyle 2way's

inside will be a large marine battery with charging points outside the cooler.

For now there will be no sub. Upgrade at a later date.

there will be a wood decking on the inside of the cooler where I will mount a 1000 watt 4channel pyle amplifier just like in v1 and v2

Also my buddy is a big Texas Tech fan so I will be putting two flag mounts on this cooler so he can mount his Tech and his Texas flag.

Also thinking about painting the grills of the speakers red to match the cooler.

so far i have

cooler $30.00

All 4 speakers and amp $225.00

I will add to this and I will take pictures and once its done i will post a video. 

I am hoping to have this done by Labor day but dont know if I am going to be able to make it that quick.

Ok long night last night It was the wife's birthday and had a big barbecue and paying for it today.  but I did manage to get a little work done on the cooler.

To make the 6x9's fit I had to cut and modify the handles with a dremel and a little extra silicone.

anyways here are a couple pictures.

Oh and sorry about the accidental pause about a min into the video.

HAHAHA  “What the…”

I really like how the lights on the amp back light the speakers to the music.  Very nice.
Where do you by your pyle speakers and amps from?

Hell after about 9 miller lights I am glad the 4th 5th and 6th hole ended up on the same side.
