now enjoy the marvelous awesomeness of the speaker!
For a while now I have wanted to make an audio amplifier, but I haven't really had any good opportunities or means to the end. When I found out about the Mono Audio Amp Breakout from Sparkfun, I started to get exited. Its perfect for what I wanted. It's effective and soldering in the right wire is no more difficult than setting up a regular sound system. Not to mention how great it looks in that laser cut mirrored acrylic case. Enough Talk. What does it sound like?
1 USB micro jack
2 Potentiometers, not logarithmic, mine are logarithmic and there is a narrow range of control now
2 Mono Audio Amp Breakout Boards
1 3.5 mm jack
8 bolts and nuts of appropriate sizes
Tools(This is what I used, you could probably get away with less)
Helping hands are practically a necessity, but if you are dextrus enough you might slide by without them
Chisel and hammer, Theses come in really handy when I find out my laser cut design wast good enough, which is often.
Step 2: Design.
There is a great Google Sketchup Plugin by flightsofideas which makes an SVG file from 3D designs in Google sketchup. You can find the Instructable here.
Anyway, I designed how I wanted the box to be using sketchup and then transferred the faces to an SVG file and put them on the Ponoko P2 laser cutting template.
Step 3: Prepare the laser cut acrylic
I got it the acrylic laser cut at Ponoko. After it came I removed it from its protective layers and tested them for fit.
