Introduction: Simplest Altoids Ipod Speaker
This is my way of making a Altoids Ipod Speaker. This was based off of someone else's Instructable.
(BTW this is my first Instructable so if you could Comment that would be great XD)
Step 1: Step 1: Materials
The Materials are...
Named on each picture!
DO NO NOT FORGET SAFETY GLASSES WHEN USING A DREMAL ROTARY TOOL!!!!!!!!!
Step 2: Step 2: Open the Headphones
Take the "ear cushions" off the headphones and then use the needle nose pliers to brake of the clip holding the head phones together.
After they are separated plug them into your ipod and make sure they still work. (which they should unless you snapped off the wire)
After that pri off the bottom of the headphone but be careful not to damage the speaker inside.
Next you want to throw away the bottom of the headphone and make suer the speakers still work. Then proceed to the next step.
Step 3: Step 3: Make the Hole in the Box!
Take your Altoids case and use a dremal rotary tool with a cutting disk and cut out a slot in the side if the case big enough for you wire to fit through.
then using electrical tape secure the sharp edges do they won't cut the wire or your fingers.
Step 4: Step 4: Put It All in the Box!!
All you need to do now is coil up the headphone cord and secure it tightly with a twist tie. then using electrical tape secure it tightly against a wall in the Altoids case.
now put in the two sspeakers with one over-lapping the other. (if you removed all the casing in on the speakers they will fit without a need to over-lap them)
finally put the headphone jack out of the slot in the box and plug it into your Ipod.
Step 5: Step 5: YOU ARE DONE
this took my about 30 min but its ok if it took you longer.
