Old Sony Boombox Turned into iPod Dock

Post by Kazaryster » Sun Sep 14, 2008 10:38 pm

One day i had a cassette and my iPod sitting next to each other and noticed that they're ruffly the same size witch brought me to my old sony boom box that was given to me and i thought i could just take a audio cable and plug it straight in but then i found out that there wasn't and audio in jack and that the ipod didnt close in to the cassette slot so i ripped it open and pulled out the motors for the cassette and then i was able to close the cassette slot and luckily the buttons still functioned although it dosen't pause the ipod it stops the audio and then i took a speaker wire and hooked it up to the speakers all in all im very pleased with the outcome.
Ohhh... and the FM and AM radio still works.

sorry for the quality all i had was my web cam

I can't remember if my friend did that or if he was planning on it.

Yeah i think thats the only cool part about it because ive seen similar mods but no one were the ipod is easily removable and is hidden to be honest its almost impossible to see that theres a ipod in it without looking close
