O.K. this is what you need!

1. A Box, like cardboard, i used the best cereal box ever!
2. A good amount of duct tape.
3. An MP3 player, mine is cool.
4. A set of speakers with volume control, mine were built for mp3/cd players, so this would be the best kind!

O.k. heres what you need to do...
Slice up the box! Trace around both of the speakers, leaving some space between for wires and such.

Step 3: Trace Around It! Seperators!

Trace around the speakers! Make it a rough sketch, no need to be fancy. Now measure out the seperators, the peices of cardboard that wil prevent the speakers from sliding. Tape them on, make them not wiggle to much.

Step 4: Put on the Bottoms!

Make a peice of cardboard that is the same length as the front and half as tall, make 2 of them, top and bottom. Tape em up!

Step 5: Wire It Up!

It is amplified, that's why it has volume controls and an ON/OFF button.

I always do this, but without using the cardboard. I just hook my mp3 up to some old comp speakers w/ AC power. To Amp this, just turn both volumes on. I find that you will get better sound if you pump your mp3 volume rather than pumping your speakers

its just to have a box to carry it in... i got tired of lugging all the cords around and stuff

jackfr0st (author)Coffee bean2007-05-22

the speakers are built for this, and they are wired together, with volume and on off control on the right speaker. and indigo montoya (ur pic) i did not kill your father, and i will not prepare to die
