Salvaging parts from a guitar amp.
That being said, I want to try to salvage as much as I can from it to make a new speaker to use with my iPod. I have disassembled the majority of it, and I don't see any major problems inside it except that everything is hardwired/soldered instead of being easy to remove. The cone appears to be in good shape, and I don't see any damaged wires (other than the ones I cut) or any electrical burns or other signs of shorts.
The real reason I am asking this question is to find out what parts would be broken, what would be worth saving, and what I could do with aforementioned parts. Upon closer inspection I noticed that the amp jack does not have a metal sleeve inside, which is probably the reason it had a bad signal.
So yeah, any tips, tricks advice, encouragement, criticism you could give me would be great.
