This is a project developed during our "Taller de Inventos" (AKA August Build Night), sponsored by Instructables and Jameco, that provided some of the components for this instructable.

It's a case that holds an audio input and two outputs, enabling you to choose the audio source for your amplifier or speakers.

Here's a video of the switch

It’s a really simple and nifty hack that we wanted to share :)

Materials

x1 DPDT Toggle Switch on-on 2 way
x3 3.5mm jack PCB stereo
x6 Cables (5cm each)
A box or container for your switch
Glue (of a powerful kind ;) )

Tools
Soldering iron
Plier
“Helping Hand” holder for soldering [Optional]
Dremel or regular drill

Case
This part is up to your imagination. We used a small wooden box that we had lying around.

Step 1: Find a case for your audio switch

The first step of this instructable is finding a small box for repurposing as the audio switch.

Some suggestions are:
- Altoids box
- Small wooden box for jewelry
- A cassette tape box
- A metal cigarette case

Just made one! Thanks for the instructable. I used an on/off/on switch so I've got an off too!
