Introduction: ShoxAMP

Hello every one this is how to hack a Shox or other mini speaker in to an amp.

What you need:

Cheap Mini speaker
3\4' carboard box higher than the Speaker
1 twetter speaker ( the small one in the photo)
1 mid range speake (the middle one)
Masking tape
Paper tape(the see throug stuff)
Prestik
Sharp knife
Electric cable
Spray paint
Screw driver that fitts your mini sperker

And last but not least
Brains (not shown in pic)

Optional:
solder iron wtih wire

*Note* For some unknown reason this hack makes the Shox MUCH louder

Okay let's get started!

Step 1: Disassemble

Okay Now time to disassemble the Mini Speaker

Take apart the speaker and locate the 2 wires heading to the speaker. Take the electric cable and prestik/solder it into the terinals
Once yoou have done that the battery might have noware to go so:
Cut 1 3mm wide openin near the battery and the another where you would like to electric cable to come out.
close it up with the battery and electic cabel comming out their holes.
Now tape the battery to the side of the speaker and place Prestik over the hole. Place prestik ove the gap where the cables come out.


PRESTIK IS NOT CONDUCTIVE SO IT IS AN EXELENT MATERIAL TO USE TO HOOK UP WIRES FOR A MORE PERMINENET CONNECTION SOLDER IT(but be warned once soldered it cant be used as a stand alone speaker)

I've only got pics for the end result

Step 2: The Rest of It

Now on the lid of the box trace the shape of your Mini speaker and the other 2 speakers
Cut them out a bit smaller so that you can make them biggeer as you go along

Wire the tweeter and mid range together the connect them to the electric cable from the Shox or mini
cover the terinals with tape and prestik

Place the speakers onto the holes in the top of the box and cut and secure to hold them in place
Use lots of tape and glue to hold them onto the top of the box

Step 3: Alomost

Plug in the shox power cable . Cut a hole to allow the power cable to come out

Step 4:

coveer the cables up with tape and make anap (as neat as possible)

Turn on the Shox and close the box plug it in and listen!
