take out the thing that holds your mp3 and cut out a hole where the headphone jack output is.(picture 2)

Step 2: Holes

Picture of holes
cut holes or drill holes where desired not to close to mp3 jack because there might not be enough room for the speaker jack to go into the mp3 jack.

Step 3: The speaker

sorry i forgot to add the number 3 in the material list so ill show you how to make the speaker......
well all you need is an audio jack 3.5mm or 2.5mm or whatever type you have, wire 2 strands, soldering iron, solder, and a speaker.
step 1:strip the wires but not to long and solder them on to the audio jack.
step 2:then do the same thing in step1 but solder them onto the speaker.
done

Step 4: Hook it up

turn the holder around and place the speaker on top of the holes you made in step 2 and tape it in place or hot glue it in place and tape the wires down so they don't move.
and now put your mp3 on to the holder and hook up the audio jack into the mp3 jack and turn on your mp3 and listen to your tunes and recycle or you can say reuse.

Step 5: Almost done!!!!!!!!

u twisted the 2 grounds together and the 2 signal lines together, sorry to say man, u either risk your very nice mp3 player (casue short circuiting the two outputs can break it), or you put a second speaker and put one signal line on each. the second choice is better than the first one (if you like that mp3 player). nice idea and very nice instructable, though, i would have never thought of this. -gamer
