Introduction: Mini Speakers

In this instructable i will show you how to make mini speakers

tools that yow wil need:

1)ruler
2)wood glue
3)plywood (4mm thickness)
4)fretwork (see picture)
5)driller
6)screws
7)plastic glue
8)soldering gun
9)wire solder
10)wires
11)mini sockets
12)capacitors (2,2uF/100V) for filtering
13)pencil
14)black marker
15)sandpaper
16)brush
17)paint
18)subler (calipers)
19)very thin socks
20)wire clippers (see picture)
21)mini speakers
22)Compass
23)wood stick (see picture)
24)small legs (see picture)
25)seibi (see picture)

It is a long list, I know

I made a parallelepiped box you chan do a different form
The dimensions of the box are: H-10,8cm L-5,8cm l-5cm

If you make a different form be careful when you calculate the dimensions.


Step 1: Step 1

First step take the plywood, draw the lines after that use the fretwork to cut the plywood.
cut 5 parts, dimensions 10x5cm
2 parts, dimensions 5,8x5cm

measure the diametre of the speaker with the subler (calipers) then draw the circle with the compass on the front piece then cutt the circle

After that sandpaper the parts , make sure that the parts are equal.

On the front piece drill two holes , see the picture and make sure that the (seibi) don't heat the speaker membane.

Step 2: Step 2

Build the box, see pictures

Step 3: Step 3

After the glue dries
1)sandpaper the box
2)make a hole for the mini socket
3)glue some some wood piece that will keep the front panel, make shure it is good , last picture,

Step 4: Step 4

Make the front panel, thake a 10x5cm piece

1)sandpaper the corners
2)draw a lines, 5mm from the corners, tham cut the frame
3)take a black marker and paint the frame
4)put some glue on the frame, stretch the thin sock then press it on the frame, when the glue dries , cut the rest with a sharpe knife,

Step 5: Step 5

Take the mini socket

1)take it apart
2)sandpaper the legs
3)cut 12cm of whire
4)solder the wires to the legs

Step 6: Step 6

Paint the box

1)after the paint dries, insert and glue the mini socket
2)draw a + and a -on the mini socket
3)solder the capacitor to the speaker and the wires, watch the +and - it's important
4)scrow the speaker in the box
5)insert the front panel
6)FINISH

Now I know some things that wen I made this instructables I didn't know.
First, don't put the capacitor, just connect the wires directly to the speaker, and when you make a filtre for some speakers, don't use electrolitic capacitor.

Dumb question, but how does the capacitor filter the connection when it's in parallel to the speaker?

A man told me to put a capacitor on a tweeter and i know that he told me to put the capacitor in parallel, looking on the internet I think that I puted the capacitor wrong.
