20W Recycled Speaker Cheap and Easy!





Introduction: 20W Recycled Speaker Cheap and Easy!

Hi everyone!

I found some old speakers which we didn't use so I thought lets make something nice of them :)

I designed a wooden box to put them in and painted it.

The speakers I found are two 40W 6ohm speakers, one of them is for the low frequency (the bass) and the other is the middle frequency.

I bought a amplifier on ebay for 3$ and the quallity is really amazing!

I also found a 12V 2A adapter from a led strip which I didn't use and they were perfect for this project.

Step 1: Collect the Parts You Need

What do you need?

- Amplifier:Ebay

This amplifier needs 6-12V and 2A is enough for 2 speakers in parallel.

When you have 2 big speakers which are the same and you want stereo audio, I would really recommand this amplifier: Ebay

- Speakers

Just search for some speakers which are 20w or more and a resistance of the speakers between 4ohm - 12ohm

- Adapter 6-12V and more than 1.5A output

- Aux input

- Wires

- Piece of rubber ora passive speaker if you have one

Step 2: Put the Parts Together

Connect the parts with wires which you can see in the picture.

I also added 4 LED's at the top and a toggle switch.

Step 3: Design a Box

I used wood to make the box, painted it and I'm so happy with the result :)

Hi Can you advise where you found the aux input jack? Thanks

Leuk project..

Zijn die blauwe draden rond de speaker ground wires?

Zijn deze nog ergens op het board bevestigd??

If I've got an amplifier 5v is it ok or no?

I absolutely love the enclosure, the colours look great! Very nice piece :)

I love the idea of 'using what you've got' to make something!
