Abstract

Over the past couple years, sustainable energy devices have become more advanced and accessible, but sometimes unable to compete with the more mainstream small appliances and electronic devices. This project is going to close the gap between these two different types of appliances, a speaker powered by solar PV cells that can compete with the most mainstream speakers. In order to compare to best-selling speakers today, intensive focus will be on making this speaker portable, have a reliable battery life, and deliver great sound quality. Since a custom body is being created, the wiring setup will also be handmade. Preliminary tests have proven enough to show promise of making a high-quality solar speaker reality. After two prototypes, a final design has been reached and moving towards a 3D printed design is imminent. Upon the assembly of the final product, more extensive testing will be conducted to ensure maximum quality and performance.
