Introduction: Poor Man's Ipod Speakers.

Picture of Poor Man's Ipod Speakers.

Ever needed a pair of speakers for you ipod that you wanted on ebay? Costs too much? this instructable, this the cheapest ipod speakers you'll ever find.

Note: I found out this was on instructables already. But I dont think its practical.

Step 1: Step 1: Stuff

Picture of Step 1: Stuff

Things you need.

1 piece of regular paper

1 pair of sizzers. =P

1 pair of earbuds that would be perfect for this instructable.

MP3 or ipod


2 mins on your hands.

Step 2: Step 2

Picture of Step 2

start by cutting 2 very similar circles with the paper. Then cut two triangles out of it.

Step 3: Step 3

Picture of Step 3

Then take the two sorta circles of paper and put one end over the other. Then tape it there.

Step 4: Step 4

Picture of Step 4

The cut a hole at the pointy tip. Cut a hole big enough for the earbuds to fit. But not too small that it wont even go through. Then put the newly made speaker onto the ear bud. Make the second one and do the same.

Step 5: Done!!

Picture of Done!!

This speaker is basically common sense. add some color design to the paper speaker then now crank it up to the loudest.

If your wondering how a poor man can get an ipod. Well, maybe he went to trift store, found one, and bought it instead of beer. Happy?

stimky666 (author)Gage9872010-06-01

I have an iPhone, with External Speakers.. so it actually sounds good, and is much louder than the iTouch.

Plus, I got subwoofer in my backpack that I plug it into. :D

I used an old CD and traced the two circles before cutting them out.

Mediocre instructable, You might want to reread your descriptions, check for spelling grammar mix-ups, etc. Your photos are a little blurry, try using the macro function on your camera.. 3/5 stars..

u might want to shutt up ok it aint yor instructable

You might want to publish a few more instructables/forum topics to better the site and gain some respect before you go around shooting your mouth off. I mentioned some constructive criticism for Dkfa to improve his instructable. Most of which you could use on your only instructable.

hey why dont u look in the miorr and wahtch chuckys bride ok u dont mese wid me u know ok u little punk

Grow up.

grow down

wow! that was a creative come back.

jesuislebomb (author)jayman13102009-06-05

I agree. Can we get an instructable on witty come backs like that?

jayman1310 (author)jesuislebomb2009-06-05

WOOP! I got a reply on my comment! YES!

im 12

Then you shouldn't be on this site.

wolf555hound (author)bumpus2009-01-04

you said he shouldn't if he's twelve, what if im 1

soz, my comp froze, i meant 13, and i tihnk bumpus is right....

bumpus (author)wolf555hound2009-01-04

You have the maturity of a 1 year old..

I meant grow up in maturity. You seem like you have the maturity of... oh... say, a two year old?

um no acctualy a two year old doesnt know how to type

Like I said, Grow up in maturity. You can have the physical structure of a 12 year old, but you have the mind of a 2 year old.

Its hard to take you seriously when I can barely read through you hoard of misspellings.

bobt4 (author)bumpus2009-06-02

ur annoying ur critisism raises a mood of anger in most people and what if someone duznt want critisism

dkfa (author)bumpus2008-08-15

ummm dude. The pics arnt blurry.and there isnt really anything to correct. So...what are you saying?

bumpus (author)dkfa2008-08-15

I'm saying your photos could be a little more clean. I'm not saying they are the worst, I'm just saying that the camera could be held a little bit more steady, perhaps having someone take the photos with you cutting for example... Just some constructive criticism..

codester (author)bumpus2008-08-16

That's not steadiness, that's unfocused. I actually thought the pics were pretty good.

bumpus (author)codester2008-08-16

Its just mo opinion and I welcome you to disagree with my statement! :D

codester (author)bumpus2008-08-16

Okay! :D

knexxpro (author)2009-02-10

NinjaSloth (author)2009-01-23

loy266 (author)2008-11-14

if u poor how can you aford ipod

wolf555hound (author)loy2662009-01-04

dude, its called borrowing and never giving lol.

hellpilot (author)2008-12-06

Whats the point...

craig3 (author)2008-11-24

this doesnt really make speakers does it? I mean it only pushes the sound into a more directional manner, doesn't make it any louder, only to where you point it

dkfa (author)2008-10-30

GUYS GUYS!! Stop the flame war or else you can both get banned.

DIY Dave (author)2008-08-23

poor men don't buy

golden snake (author)2008-08-15

1. first!! 2. you have an iphone so i think if you can buy that then you can buy 20 buck speakers lol

beerboyone (author)golden snake2008-08-15

that's not an iPhone. It's an iPod touch. and your logic doesn't work. I would assume since he spent more for the mp3 player he'd have less for the speakers.

golden snake (author)beerboyone2008-08-17

1. same thing there both over 200$ logic DOES work! but still 20<200

But now, I am going to put them into a box, like mechanicalguru2112 suggested.
