Retro Console

I don't know "how retro" your client is thinking, but they were all the rage in the 1960s, so I'll to go with that, and I'll assume you mean something with a lid that opens either with spring-loaded hinges or with a sliding support brace, and with very nice woodworking work and decorative fabric covering the speakers, a la Magnavox, Voice of Music, etc. Since you call yourself a woodworker, it sounds like your client has found the right person.

Now for the bad news...

" I was commissioned to put this unit together"
"I have no clue how to get started."

Hmmm, maybe your client commissioned the wrong guy - you're in over your head. I suggest you handle the woodworking, and partner with someone who can handle the audio.
