DIY Speakers Answered

What we did was took different types of copper wire to find out which was the best for the quality of our speaker. We tried a wider gauged wire, a longer, and a couple other unsuccessful hypothesis´. The best one was the longer wire. About 1 meter long. 

The things you need: 
-copper wire
-av cables
-box without the lid
-magnet from a speaker
-av cables
-stereo to connect to the av cable
-tape to put you copper on the box

The only thing you may have been testing is the efficiency of the driving coil that vibrates the magnet? Using a paper box or tin as the cone would be limited by the acoustic qualities it can produce. Just a guess.

Ah, then you should look up how to make a speaker from a piece of paper and conductive paint or turn a wall into a speaker or making your skull a speaker like those electric toothbrushes which vibrate your teeth and you hear it without external speakers.
