At the moment, I have to set up and take down my projector and sound system before and after each use. This is a pain, especially when I have guests over and I have to go through all the work when it is dark enough to adjust size, geometry, and focus. One of the biggest reasons I can't leave it out is I install the projector under my pergola, right above the edge of the swimming pool; it could get splashed. What I need is to buy or build a waterproof case that can be opened from both the front and back when needed to hold everything. My thought was a waterproof 19" rack system (24" cube) that could be attached, but they are way too expensive new (well over $1000). I've thought of building one from wood or plastic but wondering how to make it waterproof. Any ideas?

A completely watertight cube might be a bad idea because projectors put out a lot of heat and it would need to be vented somewhere. If it's just splashing that you're worried about, you could buy a Plexiglas sheet from a hardware store and mount it in front of the projector. If it needs to be totally shielded from the rain, that is a more difficult problem to solve.

Electric shock proof is what I worry about
