Bulletproof Your Music With the Ammo Box iPod Dock

 |  |  |  |  |  |  March 8, 2010

This incredible ammo box iPod dock was created by Thomas Spaans. He turned the old metal box into a high-end portable iPod amplifier.

It’s called the A-Box and it’s designed for docking an iPod or mp3 player, which can connect on the outside or the inside of this box. It’s great for listening to music and to protect your iPod from incoming bullets. Each A-Box is made from 1mm steel plate, fortified with 6mm trespa on the inside, and a layer of vibration dampening material to keep it sounding great.

The A-Box comes in two versions. A lighter one with 2 × 25W amps and woven fiberglass speakers, and a heavy version with 2 × 70W amps and woven Kevlar speakers. Both versions include dramatic indicator lights inside the speaker cones. They’re both on special right now with introductory prices of $339 (€250) for the light version and $475 (€350) for the heavy one right here.
