What is this project all about?

Rocketz Soundsystem is a great sounding, powerful, low cost, easy to use mobile sound system.

The sound system consists of two 55x25cm cylindical speakers with built in 50 watt speakers drivers and an easy to use bluetooth amplifier.

The speaker enclosure consists of two specially modified easily connectable Polypropelene buckets. They are reinforced and fitted with special dampening materials. This makes the speakers extremely light, yet robust with a great sound.

The two speaker halves can be detached and stacked together to fit into a special rucksack for easy transport! Everything weights under 4kg!

The speakers are powered by a super energy efficient chip amplifier, and can easily be connected by bluetooth or a headphone jack to any smartphone, tablet, notebook or MP3 player.

The ROCKETZ soundsystem is versatile. It can run on mains power for indoor party use. It can also be powered by an optional battery pack making it perfect for "off grid" outdoor partying in good weather where there is no electricity.

There is an optional battery power pack, which holds 8 x AA batteries. The ROCKETZ soundsystem is so energy efficient, that it's possible to power the soundsystem with the battery pack for a party with music for up to eight hours (depending on battery type).

The battery pack allows easy and quick battery replacement (also with rechargeables), so there is practically no limit to how long you pan party "off grid".

Everything can fit in an optional Swiss Army recycled backpack.

When you order the Deluxe model this includes the battery pack, backpack and ambient lighting for the speakers.

The incredible light weight, robustness, portability and battery use means that with ROCKETZ you have the freedom to party anywhere!
