Thread: Music At The Campsites

    Default Music At The Campsites

    The last two years I have camped out I have seen people with speakers and dj equipment to play music. I always wondered where they got the power to run these things. My group this year is pretty big around 4-5 campsites and of course we want to have music. I just have no idea where to get the power from. Can you convert car batteries into some sort of power outlet? We probably wont have dj equipment and speakers but we do at least want to power a boombox. Anyone done it before? Have ideas on how to do it? Thanks.

    Last year Goatchella had solar power running into car batteries that ran everything at our site including a large speaker.

    Is Terrence not going this year?

    Haven't talked to him in a long time.

    Make one of these, but use a boat battery (deep cycle). Your car battery was not designed for slow discharging.

    I'm in on this hunt as well. I DON'T want to run anything from my car.
    -But this video solves it. I happen to have a few of the required materials already, so I'm stoked. Thanks!

    He has tickets for Chu and him but he said he was planning on selling them. He'll probably end up going due to all his friends going.

    Built mine tonight. Super easy, everthing I needed was at walmart. You can keep an eye out on usage and drain using a digital multimeter. Here is a good chart to keep handy:http://www.marxrv.com/12volt/voltchart1.gif

    Advise to those playing music in the campground: Ask all of your neighbors if it's okay with them first. Not everyone likes your music.
