    Hi everybody,
    This is my first post here and I'm a total av noob but I have a DIY project that I hope will interest some of you. I have a vintage RS power horn loud speaker (model: 40-2238A, 8Ω, 25 watts) that I'd like to retrofit into a portable Bluetooth speaker with a cool industrial look. I would like to rig it up with a sturdy base that houses all the components (Incorporating a toggle switch or two for extra style points). If someone could please share their knowledge, I would like to know what components this build would need. I figure that it would take a Bluetooth receiver, amp(or possibly preamp?) and power source but I have no idea about the specifics.
    Thanks in advance,
