Customized Alarm Clock Answered

What I want to do is this,
-get rid of my alarms stupid sounds
-insert a custom sound
-do it cheap
-and make it small enough I can still put it in a custom casing (the casing is the easy part, I'll have no issue making that.)

I have looked around and have seen several ways to hack alarm clocks but I can't see how any of them would help me out with this particular problem. The way I see it I will probably need to rewire the clock so that it sends power to an external device when the speakers are supposed to go off. The only other way I can think of is having a small computer with one of those pre-programmed clocks but that would be more expensive than buying the sound recording clocks and a bigger pain to fit into the casing. I also think I heard someone talk about making homemade circuits, I don't know if that would work at all but it's worth mentioning. I would like to be able to find easy to follow instructions that are CLEAR and not super complicated. Any help would be appreciated!

BTW, yes, I have looked at the sound recording clocks online and they all look like crap or are way to expensive to bother with.
