    Neo-Geo Sound Box DIY

    Just ended a restoration of Neo-Geo cabinet for a friend and had some materials left so I wondered what to did with them.
    First idea was just to make a light box with Neo-Geo sign,but I remembered that I have and one Voice Playback Module DY-SV5W MP3 ordered before time for some tests.
    And finally decided to make the box with sounds.

    How it work:
    1.Turn on-sound Neo-Geo boot screen
    2.After that 1hour silence-put a blank 1hour mp3
    3.After end of 1h begin some random title screen sound from some Neo-Geo game
    4.After that 1h silence again
    5.And so on

    This circle for around 8h,because this thing will be turn on for around 6h.
    It have in it 8 Neo-Geo title screen sounds from different games and 8 1h blank mp3.
    Of course it can be put whatever sound you like.


    How is made(everything is made from materials that I have.The only thing that was bought is DY-SV5W MP3 and LED strip):
    1.Cut a piece of plexiglass 1mm,some wood and glue them to the base.
    2.Applied Neo-Geo sticker on the plexiglass.
    3.Put On/Off switch and power jack.
    4.Put LED strip Cold White.
    5.Put DY-SV5W MP3 module and speaker from notebook.
    6.Put one LM7805 which convert 12v(from the main adapter which feed LED strip) to 5v(to feed DY-SV5W MP3 module).
    7.At the back of the box put two holders.

    P.S. Because had this style of RED Neo-Geo sticker when it light become little bit off RED.
    But in the time will order more dark RED Neo-Geo sticker so when light behind it will be more RED.

    Cool! I like hearing the jingle once every hour during the work day as it really settles my nerves.

    Yes,this is exactly the idea of the 1h sounds.
    First it was ar power on to sound with Neo-Geo boot,but after that I was thinking "This thng will work the whole day,why to not do something more and no too annoying".

    The funny part is that the original idea was for 4-slot top.
    But it was somehow too long toy so decided to make it smaller.
    Interesting for 4-slot what can you put in it.
    May be 4 titles and when song is playing to light it's picture/game.

    I was thinking it would be cool to have it setup with working EL panels and mini marquee's, a definite project for when I get time
