I couldn't resist sharing one of the photos that I took yesterday of the
final National SRF-39 in its cabinet and with its companion speaker
system cabinet. The sound system is a small 2 x 5 watt stereo amp from
canakits (canakit.com) that cost under $35 assembled. It runs on
12VDC. The back panel of the audio box has an audio out for two
larger outboard speakers and a switch to choose between the outboard
speakers or the four little speakers (2x2) in the front panel of the box.
Thanks to canakits, the front panel has two input ports (hi and low
impedance) as well as the volume pots for each channel and a power
switch. Instead of putting both the radio and the speaker system in the
same box, I opted for this route because I didnot have enough scrap wood
for the larger cabinet and, this way, I can leave the speaker box in the
NW, since my only use for this set in Oklahoma is DXing.
