    Well it has taken me most of the year but I have finally finished my jukebox. At the heart of it is a Bob Latino ST-70 amp. Running the amp is a heavily modified PAS-3. The PAS-3 was rebuilt with a Epperson line amp board, new tubes, transformer, cap board, etc. In between I have a SE-10 EQ so I can tailor the sound to my liking. Everything inside stays a decent temperature with large cooling fans. It only runs about 85 degrees inside with the fans.

    The speakers are all new. I built enclosures inside the cabinet and ported them out the back. They are composed of Pioneer 12" woofers, Pyle midranges and phenolic tweeters all running through Dayton crossovers. All the speakers are rated at 91db SPL.

    I built a small computer using and Atom processor. It runs Ejukebox by Audiosoft. Everything is controlled by the touchscreen monitor built into the top.

    The cabinet started out as an old, RCA console from way back in 1961. It was a dark, chocolate brown color with green speaker grilles. Really ugly. I stripped it, rebuilt it for the equipment and refinished it.

    There are a few little bugs left to work out with the software and a little touchup on the cabinet but for the most part it is complete and sounds awesome. I can crank it up without distortion. In fact, it gets so loud that I can't listen to it above half volume.

    Here are some pics. Hope you enjoy them.

    You have given new meaning to the word 'console stereo'! Your work is awesome.....and I certainly do appreciate the time and effort you've put into this project. In the 'auto' world, we'd call this a 'sleeper'! Good luck! TSD

    Impressive. It even has the modern version of the common, ordinary record changer, and in the same "hole!"
