    I have placed small speakers into cardboard boxes to make them sound better in the past.  This past weekend I found myself sitting at a McDonalds watching my kids play and listening to music on the Droid.  Inspiration struck.  I took out my pocket knife and cut a small rectangle out of the top of an empty sandwich box.  I set the droid over it, covering the hole completely and putting the speaker over the hole.  I then made various folds in the box to tune the sound how I wanted.  It wasn't a Klipsch but it sounded pretty nice.
