probably something like this... again, not enough volume in the suitcase for optimum sound, but it is what it is... i do think you'll need a port for ventilation if nothing else (for the heat from the ...

for your suitcase set-up, both amps are slightly inappropriate -- one with too much power, one without the stereo effect (mono). it'd be great if you had a 2-channel (under-75W/channel) amp. you could ...
