SoundScoop for IPad (2, 3, 4 Gen.) Increase Your Volume for Only $0.99




Introduction: SoundScoop for IPad (2, 3, 4 Gen.) Increase Your Volume for Only $0.99

Have you ever found yourself cupping your hand around the side of the iPad to get a little more volume out of that single speaker? Let SoundScoop do all the work for you! This is a very simple project that can be completed in under 10 minutes and uses one sheet of craft foam that can be found at most hobby stores for $0.99.

Step 1: Materials & Tools

  • Sheet of craft foam (as you can see by the picture it's sold by different names).
  • Hot glue gun
  • x-acto knife (preferred) or scissors
  • pencil or pen

Step 2: Download the Pattern

Download the pattern from this link then print it out.

Step 3: Cut Out the Pattern

Cut out the pattern with your choice of tool. I prefer to use an x-acto knife.

Step 4: Transfer Pattern to Craft Foam

Using a pencil or pen trace the outline of the pattern onto the craft foam. I used lime green so it would be easy for you to see.

Step 5: Cut Out the Craft Foam

Again using your preffered method cut out the scoop from the craft foam. Don't forget the slot.

Step 6: Overlap the Edges of the Slot Then Glue

Get a feeling for how the edge overlaps. Put a shot of hot glue in the approximate area of where the spot is on the photo. Press together.

Step 7: You're Done!

Good job.

Step 8: Attach to IPad

Slide it on the corner edge of the iPad centered under the speaker. Enjoy your enhanced volume!

    So great to hear. I love that show too!


    Nice! Works well and whilst I'm not sure how the acoustic qualities compare, I just used some soft foam sheet packing material for a grand total of $0! Cheers!
