The BoomCase Story:
The BoomCase was born in the Inner Sunset District of San Francisco, CA. Discouraged from always having to buy 12 “D” batteries for my BoomBox (which didn’t sound that great), I decided to build my own.
I have been building portable battery powered speaker systems since 1999. When it came time to make my own Boombox I had two goals: 1.) It had to have a built-in rechargeable battery. 2.) It had to sound great.
In the Summer of 2010 I decided to put pictures up of a new “BoomCase” on my artist website www.MrSiMo.com and My Etsy Store. Soon After ChipChick.com blogged about us. Engadget.com re-blogged ChipChick.com’s post and the rest is history.
The BoomCase is currently Hand-Made in Sacramento, California. The BoomCase is sold in select retailers in the USA, the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland,the Netherlands,Hong-Kong and South Korea. To get an updated list of retailers please email us.
Our Current team consists of Dominic Odbert, JP Odbert, Mary-Anne Sarao, May Sarao and Josue Palos. Read an interview here to learn more: Urban Outfitters Interview and Studio Visit
Each BoomCase is built using quality drivers, a unique handmade crossover and each acoustically designed to compliment the speakers used. The BoomCase team has over 40 years of combined audio building experience. Every BoomCase is rigorously tested for 2+ days to audiophile sound quality standards before shipping out.
How Does The BoomCase Work?:
Simply Plug your Audio Device into the Aux Input, turn on the power switch and play. See the diagram below for a better understanding of the BoomCase controls. Bluetooth wireless play is also available.
