DIY Portable Ipod Speaker

Introduction: DIY Portable Ipod Speaker

About: Hakuna Matata!!!

Its always nice to have something louder than your headphones and better quality than your lame Ipod speakers. And why would you pay $50 for mini Ihome speakers when you can do it yourself for $5! This gives you better sound quality and awesome pocket sized music!

Step 1: Make It

Go to Re-store or some place that you can get used electronics for cheap and bring your Ipod.

Step 2:

Test out some speakers till you find one thats good quality and portable enough to fit in your pocket

Step 3:

Get them.
Use a flathead to pry open the packaging.

Step 4:

Once the packaging is completely off, find all of the wires.

Step 5:

There will either be a plug or a battery pack.
Forget those for now.

Step 6:

Find the input wires.
Cut them as close to the input as possible.
Separate them.

Step 7:

Here's the most expensive step:
Go to radio shack and buy a 3.5 mm headphone jack.

Step 8:

Solder the two wires of the headphone jack to the two input wires connected to the speaker.

Step 9:

Put the casing around the speaker* and skrew together.

*Make sure the jack is outside the casing**.
**You might have to cut a notch in the casing to do so.

Step 10:

Plug into Ipod and listen to music on your portable pocket-sized speaker!

Step 11:

Here's another more pocket sized one than that(I made this with some styrofoam to look cool).
