In a nutshell, this tutorial is a housing conversion. We'll take the guts out of the rocketfish speakers and transfer it over to each of the salad bowls. I came up with this idea for my blog (http://theb-roll.com) where I do one creative thing a day for a year and document it each day. This was Day 140.
I did this conversion mostly over a period of one night so some of my solutions might seem a little temporary to you. As we go along I will try to suggest alternative methods.
The two main ingredients in this tutorial are:
1. The Rocketfish speakers (RF-WS01)
2. 2 BLANDA MATT 11in Ikea serving bowls
Now, lets begin...
Step 1: Opening Up the Speakers
A phillips head screwdriver
A smaller precision phillips head screwdriver
A T10 Torx Screwdriver
A 1/2in. Nut Driver
Begin by removing the volume knob from the front of the speakers. It's on there tight so you might want to use some pliers of channel locks to pull it off. Then take the 1/2in. Nut Driver and remove the screw attaching the potentiometer to the plastic housing. (see picture)
Next, take your T10 Torx screw driver and remove all of the screws off of the back of the housing. Don't miss the four located inside the battery compartment. There should be eight altogether (see picture) Once the screws are removed you should be able to open the speaker housing quite easily.
