    It would be possible, but really quite a pain to do.
    You would basically need to set up a screen for the mac mini, connect it to the battery, to the speaker system and to your phone (via bluetooth, you would have to look for software).
    With a mac mini you may also need to get a power converter from 12 to 110 Volts.
    It would be a long and hard project to take on, and I would not recommend it unless you knew what you were doing or if you were willing to spend many, many hours and a good deal of money on it.
