Tinkerton's Aether Receiver by Steampunked-Out Tinkerton's Aether Receiver by Steampunked-Out
Here is the final version of Tinkerton's Aether Receiver.  It's made of Alder wood and stained with cherry.  The front bells are from trombones as well as several other pieces.  I've also used brass and copper tubing, copper and brass sheets, and reclaimed copper water pipe.  I used jewelry making techniques on the metal work to smooth and shine it up to a buffed finish.  The speakers inside are Creative Labs blue tooth speakers.  The fronts are mounted behind the trombone bells, and the base speaker is mounted inside.  There is a on/off and volume control on the side, as well as a button to activate the blue tooth.  There is also an audio jack hidden in one of the top tubes to allow non-blue tooth devices to jack in.  Check out a video of it working:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QWZJL…

Signals transmitted through the aether by aetherial transmission devices.  I believe they call it "blue tooth" in the future times. ;)

Well, it's not a car stereo, but it has decent volume.  They are just good computer speakers; 2 fronts and a sub.
