Together with a friend, I found a old loudspeaker box in the storage of the CCC which contained the material of the Blinkenlights project. Both of us took one of them since they are beautiful and have the perfect format for a bluetooth sound box and include a nice rotary control element for volume. My friend guessed these speakers where used as a monitor system in dressing rooms and he started replace the speaker inside by a stereo system with bluetooth. Since the Blinkelights project was last active in Toronto, Canada it stands to reason that the speaker came from there and so he named the box Toronto.

Inspired by his work and blogpost I decided to build my own but I choose to use a Mono speaker and amplifier combined with a bluetooth receiver and 3 Li-Ion 18650 cells.

Referring to his I just called mine „Toronto ||“
