Reppo Ii Backpack: Boombox on Your Back

by Paul Strauss

This modern backpack is sure to draw attention as you walk down the street — especially if you’ve got the volume cranked up. You see those big black patches? They’re loudspeakers.

Reppo II Boom Box Backpack by Joonas Saaranen

Created by industrial design student Joonas Saaranen, the Reppo II backpack features a built in pair of full-range speakers and an amplifier, so you can kick out the jams as you walk down the street. The only thing better would be if that big black patch were a subwoofer. Of course, that might shatter your vertebrae if you turned up the volume too much.

Saaranen’s concept design has gotten as far as a functional prototype at this point, but he hasn’t revealed if he’ll ever have them produced en masse. In the mean time, if you happen to be in Berlin, Germany (where Joonas currently resides) and hear someone coming down the street wearing this bad boy, offer up the mad props he deserves.

    This Idea it´s totally not new, in Mexico City it has been since 3 or 4 years , maybe more, and it,s used by some street vendors to sell piracy (music and videos) and i can say that is a very anoying invet, because they go around on public transportation at very loud volume.

    I’d love to see someone walking down the street blasting music from one of these things…

    So I could knock them on their rear and crush it.

    Been there, done that. It’s cool, people look at you kind of strange when you whoosh past them on the bike, music cranked halfway to the maximum. It’s funny because eveyone expects a car or something and then you see a guy on a bike with a backpack that’s banging out Promoe’s Goverment Music or something similar. On the other hand it’s quite nice to ride down smaller and quieter streets with this on the back, with the volume down and some nice chillout on – man that can make my evening on the way back from work or beer =) I’ve made mine with a car amplifier and some ellipsoid speakers and a 7.2Ah lead battery and I’ve taken this everywhere – man that lasts for ages, one time we made a huge 2 week country trip and we didn’t have to recharge it once! I’f there’s enough demand, I can make an Instructable for the thing!

      Question for wheerzardth:

      I’m modiying a giant boombox Sharp GF-777 and what to use two 7.4v 10,000mAh lithium batteries meant for R/C cars. I’m only looking to power 100watts RMS. What amp were you running and what exact battery did you used?

    this is hot!!! i wouldn’t mind having one…

  9. Craig says:

    What is the point!

    The speakers face backward and they are angled apart. Unless the objective is to piss off old people walking their dogs I’m not sure the designer solved any problem.

  10. Noah James says:
