How Does The BoomCase Work?
How Long Does It take to Make a BoomCase?
It takes us about three weeks to complete and ship a custom ordered BoomCase. The BoomCase is handmade in Sacramento, California USA. We are in the works of opening a second Shop in Oakland, CA that will have space for people to visit! 🙂
Does the BoomCase come with a warranty?
Yes. We put a lot of work into each BoomCase. So we will fix most issues that come up for free if you send your BoomCase back to us. If you damage a speaker or your battery goes bad because it wasn’t properly charged we can replace them at cost. Some issues that have come up (and we fixed for free) – accidental breaking of the on/off switch, breaking audio cable inside audio input jack or bending the charging port. We have had this happen to about 5 cases so far. Other than that the BoomCase is pretty solid and will last you a long long time. Just keep it off when not in use and put it on charger often.
How much does the BoomCase weigh?
Most BoomCases weigh between 11-16lbs. Our lightest BoomCase is only 6lbs and our heaviest 30lbs. It all depends on size, amount of speakers and options chosen.
Do you ship Internationally?
Yes we do. We have shipped to Italy, The UK, Australia, Germany,The Netherlands, Japan and more. You can expect to pay around $100-175 for shipping. Within The US it is $45-85.
Will the Boomcase work with a electric guitar or synthesizer?
Yes. We can configure your Case to accept any type of input but suggest a small headphone amp on certain guitars to get a little extra volume as they are setup to be more like a home stereo versus an actual “guitar amp”. See an example of a BoomCase, a mixer and Synths here – YouTube. You can also use Amplitude for the iPhone.
Do you have an email list?
If you look on the right side of this page you will see a Newsletter Sign-up section. If you sign up you will receive the latest news about available BoomCases and Suitcases. We are also on Facebook & Instagram.
Can I get protective grills put on my speakers?
Of course. We offer speaker grills for most of the speakers on the BoomCase. Prices start at $25. Grills might not be available on the smaller speakers.
How Do You Tell How Much Battery Life is Left?
How to Read Meter:
Any video of the BoomCase in action?
How does the USB Charger and Battery Charger Work?
Just plug in the battery charger to the case and let it be. Its fully automatic. The USB charger allows you to charge any device that can charge from a computer USB port.(iPod,iPhone,BlackBerry,Droid, Various Mp3 Players etc.)
How Does the 125w Electrical Plug Work? What can I power with it?
We add an inverter inside the BoomCase and put a plug on the side. This allows you to power devices such as your laptop or a mixer directly off the case.
Why Should I Buy A BoomCase over the numerous other companies doing the same thing?
Quality.Experience. We know audio. We were the company that popularized the idea of a suitcase boombox. While we definitely were not the first to put speakers in a suitcase (our FedEx driver said he built a suitcase boombox in the 80s) all the companies who have started to copy the BoomCase have only been doing so since 2012. Most of them write that they “researched” how to build a speaker in a suitcase to get started. The BoomCase team has been building speaker systems since 1999. We have built numerous vehicles and products (All battery powered) that we have used in parades, as floats and at events long before the BoomCase became what it is.
We could not find a decent boombox on the market place and if it did sound good it needed 12+ “D” Batteries and only lasted a few hours. In 2009 we started to build something a little more portable than our previous speaker systems.
When it came time to make our own Boombox we had two goals:
1.) It had to have a built-in rechargeable battery. 2.) It had to sound great.
In the Summer of 2010 Mr. SiMo decided to put pictures up of a new “BoomCase” on his artist website www.MrSiMo.com and his 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 and available worldwide. We are opening a new shop in Oakland, CA in late 2013.
Each BoomCase is a one of a kind piece. No two BoomCases are the same.
