    I noticed that you show AA batteries in the picture labeled "Parts" but you title them as AAA batteries. Which did you use?

    In order to make them sound reactive, you need to send the output from your iPod/MP3 player to the speaker and the LEDs.

    It doesn't really matter on which side you put the wire on. As long as you put all of the wires in the same circuit.

    you can use e-tape and you only need one side it does madder if its left or rigth and there are always to different colored wires.

    well... i dont know much about electronics but still-
       I have been doing this pin and speaker thingy since the time i got my ipod nano 5g. but i think the sound's too low. is there any simple way of making it louder?

    so if you went without the leds the batteries would not be needed, right?
