Sick of having to cart a pair of computer speakers around if you want to hear some tunes away from you computer? Me too. In my room the only speakers I have are a pair of computer speakers which are stuck to my desk because of cords that loop around the back of the desk. If I wanted to use anything other than earphones away from my desk I wasn't easily able to because of the difficulty of moving around the computer speakers. This prompted me to get a pair of old computer speakers and put them inside a single box so that there were a minimal amount of cords and so they'd be easy to relocate when I needed to use them somewhere else. This instructable will guide you through this process of repurposing 2 computer speakers into a single unit. By the way this is my first Instructable so all comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated!
What you'll need:
- Pair of old computer speakers
- Soldering iron and solder
- Something to put the new speakers into
- Tinsnips (only if you want to get the old speakers apart without having to cut and resolder wires)
- Power drill, with drill bits and hole saws.
- Some way of decorating your speaker enclosure (not necessary, but something like an airbrush or normal paints are a good way to go).
- A way of fixing parts of your speakers to their enclosure. Screws, hot glue or Silastic are best.
Oh and a disclaimer, be careful. If your speakers have a transformer like mine you will be working very close to a lot of power. So whenever your doing anything to your speakers, make sure they are unplugged. I'm not responsible if you blow yourself up.
