Personal beer speaker

This is a speaker device made for any sound device. EX.: Ipod.
It is not as simple to make as it looks. For this creation I used two speakers I got out of an old radio. As you can see I made this speaker out of a beer box. To make the hookup safe but simple I bridged the two speakers to one amplifier. It works great with my Ipod. I tried to make the design cool. I used an old harmon cardon amp from a pair of computer speakers. I get a good amount of bass from the box.

Thanks for looking!

Step 1: What you need

For this project you will need...

1. Glue gun with glue stics (obviosly!)
2. Exacto knife
3. Two speakers 1 small woofer about 3/12" (The woofers optional
4. A box (I suggest beer box) Extra cardboard.
5. A lablor (Instructions on last page)
6. Screws
7. Solder gun and solder
8. PATIENCE!

Step 2: Operation

Okay you've got this far...

Now pick up your knife and cut a whole for the speaker. Cut the whole a little smaller than the speaker so you can fit the screws in. To help be acurate trace the speaker with a pencil or eraceable pen. Cut the whole inside the circle. Now its time to plug in your hot glue guns and get it warmed up!

I used an old amp from a set of computer speakers and hooked it up to 2 speakers from a $20 dollar sub woofer. The computer speakers amp it hooked up to 2 9 volt batteries. It's very loud and works with no distortion :)

Oh it sounds beautifull. I also added a subwoofer by making a plate that would fit snug in the box, then cut a hole in the plate for a woofer, and put the plate inside near the handle hole. It was complicated, and it is nice without it. Just use some nice speakers. (The ones I used were from a radio.)

"cut a whole for the speaker"?
Other than the spelling, I love the idea and the execution of the whole thing.

Where did you purchase the amplifier? thanks.

Well i got the amp out of an old pair of hardon carmon speakers, But it dosnt really matter what type of amp you have as long ans it can power the speakers to the max. If you have any amp from an old radio or something you will be set. Just make sure that it will fit in the box. If you have any other questions i will be more than happy to answer them Thank for commenting, master
