I wanted a low-profile, quite speaker I could plug my ipod into. I also had these nifty speakers I ordered for the fun of it. I got them here http://www.mouser.com/Search/ProductDetail.aspx?R=AS01508MR-Rvirtualkey66500000virtualkey665-AS01508MRR. Really it was just to have some fun and I wanted to make the last thing you would expect sound to come from - a book - into a speaker for my gadgets and whatnot.

Step 1: Step uno

Gather you materiel's. I posted where to find the speakers I used on the first page, but you could use any speaker, really, as long as it fits in the book.

1. Speakers(If you use the kind I did you should solder on a connector to the ipod)
2. Book(I prefer paperback)
3. Hot Glue gun.
4. Razor
nice :)
Interestingly enough I now do expect sound to come from books.<br/><a href="http://www.instructables.com/id/Book_Speakers/">http://www.instructables.com/id/Book_Speakers/</a><br/>
Hi. I LOVE&nbsp;this idea?&nbsp; Were the speakers you were using battery powered, or did they run off the iPod power (somehow)<br />I suppose you could hide the battery pack in the book too.&nbsp; I love it.<br />-H.<br /><br />
