Cheap iPod Speakers

Step 1: The Materials

Materials

You're going to need

1. An audio cord ($2)
2. A 1/2" (or 1/4") to 3/4" jack adapter (<$1)
3. Some sort of cheap amp ($15 from wal-mart)

Total= A little less than $18

I've heard the Audio Cord called different things so just describe it to the guy at radio shack and he can help you find it
The adapter size depends on the jack on the audio cord. If you have a 1/2" jack on the audio cord, you'll want a 1/2" jack adapter. I've got a 1/4" jack on the cord and my 1/2" jack still worked after a little wiggling and some tape.

I've never seen a new guitar amp for less than $50. Could you tell me where you got the one you used?
I did this, and it works brilliantly with my portable guitar amp. It was £9.99 from maplin electrical suppliers. (I'm guessing you're in the US, but you can get them online)

I don't remember exactly where I got it, but here's a link to a new $29.99 amp.
