Here's a simple Bluetooth speaker that's made from hacking old gadgets and mashing them up together. It sounds exactly like the big Jambox but only smaller! It has a mic and command buttons too! My friend, Angelo (ASCAS), and I made this project.

We made this project to boost up my viewers and glad to say it did. I learned how to make guides the way it should be and look I got featued in my next build the 3D Printed Sumobot so i thank my friend Angelo for helping me with this project with all the pictures and materials.

The homebrew jambox is equipped with two 5w neodymium drivers, a 2.5" passive radiator, three command buttons, handsfee mic feature and a 2250mAh lithium battery "All recycled". Closed tight with out any screws or any openings we decided it's ok since this not our final design we hope to 3D print our parts and make it smaller and probably waterproof!. Just make sure when you build this everything is working as it is everything secured and functioning properly inside and out.

Step 1: Install The Passive Radiator/ Driver

When we dissasembled our old USB powered desktop speakers we were able to get four of these passive radiators. If you're lucky you might find one. The plastic enclosure was acquired from a old organizer tray.

We used superglue to seal the rubber of our plastic enclose.

<p>Hi, your project looks pretty dope, just wanna ask if what's model name of your CDR king speaker with passive radiator, thanks! :)</p>
What are the command buttons for?
<p>Eu comprei um daqueles da China, ea bateria &eacute; ruim, dura uma hora somente, algu&eacute;m sabe onde posso comprar a bateria original? j&aacute; tentei e n&atilde;o acho.</p><p><br>obrigado </p><p><br></p>
<p>good project but i must say that hot glue is a bit dangerous because when charging that lithium battery it could gets hot and melt...</p>
<p>what is the quality of the sound ? do you hear digital noise at low volume? </p>
Where did you get the speakers?
<p>It would be real nice if you can mention the source of the 5W neodymium driver.</p>
<p>Excellent Write up</p><p>Excellent Workmanship</p><p>Excellent Practicality.</p><p>Vote for you.</p>
<p>hi author, where did you buy your solar panel? is it from cdr-king? i'm filipino btw. thanks</p>
I think I bought it from e-gizmo but cdr king is also nice
<p>Last 2 questions pre, </p><p>1. How much is the solar panel?</p><p>2. What ampli did you use and where to get it?</p><p>Thanks in advance.</p>
<p>solar panel 165php ampli i just recycled it from old amplifiers</p>
<p>165 php solar panel? where did you buy it. by the way i'm filipino too. solar panel here cost 1000php or more.</p>
<p>Nice amount of material you reused for this one! If available, you could use jigsaw and hole saw for smoother cuts and less melting - sanding later.</p>
Nice! How much did it all cost?
<p>It cost us 1,100 php, in USD that's about $22.</p><p>:)</p>
<p>Nice job, the finished product looks amazing, thanks for sharing!</p>
<p>Good Instructable! I think I will make me one during my summer vacation! Thank you.</p>
<p>Nice job! This will be great when we're sitting around the fire pit.</p><p>I'm going to show this to a couple of guys I work with (one of which has done 3 Ironman triathlons... makes me exhausted just thinking about it), and point out that it fits nicely on bike handlebars. A 'short' ride for them is 30-40 miles, and this is a whole lot safer than wearing headphones.</p>
<p>Nicely done... It will go well along Nokia Lumia. </p>
Really nice
<p>Awesome! It looks like a professionally manufactured speaker! </p>
