This is a speaker i made from scratch useing scraps i found around my home. The goal of this project was to make a speaker for free out of scrap. The other thing was that i did not use a pre made speaker to make this.
I will show how to make it, so you can build your own :)
Heres a video of the sound of my speaker.
Step 1: Parts and Tools
card board tube
coated copper magnet wire (This must be atleast 8 ohms to protect your devices)
Step 2: Make the Speaker
Place the wire in the center of the bottom of the cup.
Step 3: Make the Speaker 2
To make the bracket make the paper clip straight. Then tale it io a peice of card board. Then flip it over and tape the magnet on the back side of the bracket.
Make shure you tape secureley because this part must resist the vibrations from the magnetisim when the speaker is on.
Step 4: Make the Speaker 3
Also make shure to secureley tape this on.
You now have a bare speaker with no way to connect to the music player.
Step 5: Make a Case
First make a front plate out of card board.
Trace the diameter of the top of the cup on to a peice of cardboard and then cut it out.
Step 6: Make a Case 2
Made out of a card board tube and taped to the cup.
Step 8: Make a Case 4
Step 9: Solder Time
Solder the 2 coil wires to the audio jack wires. It does not matter which way they are connected.
Step 11: Enjoy Your Speaker
The speaker quality is pretty good considering that its made of paper and hand made.
If all works well, Enjoy your speakers!!!
