The purpose of this video is to demonstrate the performance of the Boominator. The video does not show the incredible sound quality tho. Even if I could record it flawlessly, you would still be listening to the video though your speakers.

Image gallery of the build can be found here: http://imgur.com/a/bbRhJ

Check these videos for a similar demonstration with the Boominator playing The Drift by Blackmill:
70%: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UO2W2...
100%: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9H6SIN...

A typical scenario for a sunny day with the Boominator could be 8 hours playback at 70% plus 6 hours playback at 100%, and with 8 hours of useful sunlight at 10W average. This leaves around 40Wh to be charged into the batteries. This is enough to fully charge 3 iPhones, without consuming power from the batteries.
