Yah, that avatar is amazing, Please O please tell me you know her!!

Made a couple of those. Kind of what I do at work.

Marine rated speakers can be a plus to make it usable in wet weather.

i woulda fabed up some fiber glass to the front of it with some marine speakers in it and also so the cd player coulda fit on the side of it by redesigning the handle to where it fits below it, then strap it on your quad have the wires run off the battery so you can still put all the good stuff in the cooler. but it still kick a$$

cylinder works 478bb, mx/drag p&p from titan motorworks, oem crank, venom 12.25:1 piston, rossier full exhaust, fci intake, cam mod, dynatek programmable.

Hey nice radio man! Looks like we had the same idea - building it out of an Igloo Cube. Mine's got (2) old school Punch 45s, one powering a JL Audio 10" sub in a 1 cuft sealed enclosure and the other amp powering (2) Infinity 6-1/2" coaxials.
Theres a Coustic active crossover to separate the highs and lows and its all fed by my 2nd gen Nano. Juice provided by a heavy-as-hell Optima sealed gel battery.

I put the speakers high to keep them out of the water as much as possible, and each one has poly cones and foam surrounds to make them a 'little' more water resistant. The cube sits in a black innertube with a plywood bottom and just floats alongisde during the trips or sits on the back when we just want to chill...

Problem is heat! I've got to keep the lid closed tight while floating as there are parts of the river that get a little hairy, and well none of us are that responsible during the trip to open and close the lid at different times...

I'm wondering if anyone has an idea how to cool this beast while keeping it as water tight as possible. I've got a few ideas but dont want to experiement on this project - cut too many unnecessary holes. Anyone have ideas?
