About: I'm into making alot of things my latest projects were a rotating live feed spycam and an altoids speaker.

This is my altoids speaker that I just finished enjoy!
Watch the video to see how loud it gets.

Step 1: Tools and Parts

All the parts and tools needed are listed below:
Saudering iron
old speaker
altoids can
drill brush
1 1/4in. hole driller
heat shrink

Step 2: Drilling

Drill two holes and hot glue some paper on to the bottom of the can so it won't short circuit.
Also drill holes onto the side for a switch and the led.

Step 3: Test

Test the speakers and chip!

Step 4: Hot Gluing

Start hot gluing the tin can together and watchout don't get too much on the chip!
To glue the speakers just set it down aligned with the holes and just circle around with the glue gun.

Step 5: Done!

Test that your speaker works after every step their were some weird and hard to find problems with this thing.

    ...That's when she said "I don't hate you boy I just want to save you while there's still something left to save"...

    Where did you get the chip.

    This isn't how to "Make" a speaker, more of how to transfer an already made speaker device into an altoids tin. Making a speaker would require a way to amplify the volume coming from the headphone line, which is what the old speaker board does.

    Man it would help if u out the battery inside the alto ifs tin

    I give you credit, but it could be improved.

    it's me hayden. I felt like bothering somebody today, and I saw your speaker thingy here. So yeah...

    Where did you get the speakers?

    with all of the spare space you have in the altoids tin, why position the two speakers to the side and house the battery inside the tin?

    I think it was inside the old speaker casing as so it was not on all the time
