What do barrels, suits, violins, old lunchboxes and collectible Star Wars items have in common? Only that the fine folks at BoomCase have figured out how to cleverly integrate speakers into them, creating unique mobile audio masterpieces. But they specialize in repurposing vintage luggage, of which their 2,000-watt Monster Trunk ($4,495) is surely their piece de resistence.

Their most powerful case ever features a thumping throwback Cerwin Vega 18-inch Stroker subwoofer (and matching passive radiator), two 8-inch sealed mids and a trio of super tweeter bullets. What's most amazing is that they've integrated a battery that'll supposedly dish out 18+ hours of audio, depending on how many blocks you intend to rock.

They haven't yet set a price for the upcoming one-of-a-kind antique Louis Vuitton suitcase turned portable speaker system.
