I recently bought an iPod speaker system for my son from our local Curries , it cost Â£50 quid and it's absolutely crap! So i thought I'd have a go at making one myself. The idea was to make one with a budget of Â£0 and just use stuff from the house/shed. The wife said it mustn't look like a coffin and must be easy to use. I decided rather than waste time designing one i'd just rip off apple's design.
This is the first Instructable I've done so please be gentle!
Step 1: The bits
As my budget was low (i.e. sod all!) I had to go rooting around the garage. Luckily I have a few bits of old car hifi and computer stuff floating around so that helped.
Here are the ingediants:-
1 X amplifier (15 year old pioneer) you can buy really cheap amps from maplin for a few quid
1 X 240v - 12v power supply which came from a knackered LCD monitor
1 X 13cm speaker came from an old Renault 19
2 X tweeters came from the same old renault
2 X crossovers from my old VW Polo hifi system
1 X sealed lead acid battery which came from my house alarm(please don't burgle me!)
assorted wire(from off the floor)
MDF 12mm is all I had
Isopon filler (yanks call it Bondo)
glue, nails and white gloss paint
Apple universal dock and remote (came off my desk, but you can get them for ÃÂ£15 off eBay)
