Introduction: Stereo

About: I like to tinker with just about anything, sometimes it works out in the end. Have fun looking at the projects, try tearing something open and let me know how it goes. cheers, -Joe

Need a cheap stereo for your ipod? This one is a quick project.

Step 1: Parts:

Radio Shack Phono(RCA) Jack 274-346 $3.99
Radio Shack Speaker Terminal 274-631 $4.99
Radio Shack DC Power Jack - 274-1576 $2.59
Radio Shack Stand Offs $2.59
Two old 6V wall wart that fits the power jack. Make sure they are the same.. or buy new

2 x Velleman 3W Mono Amp K8066 $10.00
47K Stereo Volume Knob $3
The box the kits come in.
Optional: 2 LEDS
Optional: 2 resistors (2k Ohm)
Optional: Molex KK Connectors

Step 2: Kits

Follow the instructions to build the two kits. But instead of soldering the terminals on, just solder on wires.

Step 3: Its Dremeling Time.

You want to drill some holes in the box.
First drill your holes for the stand offs so you can mount the two boards. I just used two for each.
And drill a hole for your volume knob.

Step 4: More Holes...

Now its time for the rear hookups to be drilled.
Make your two 1/4" holes for the RCA connectors, two holes for power. 1 for the on/off
Now the radioshack stereo speaker hookup thing fits nicely, just line it up and mark with a marker.
I used molex KK connectors and 22awg solid wire to make everything modular, but you could solder everything together and save a buck
