Working on a project help? Answered

I currently am working on a project with 2 altoid tins and what I want to do is have one an amplifier, and another as a speaker. The speaker one having a two inch subwoofer and a two inch full range. I would like to be able to adjust bass and treble and volume without alot of sitrotion but its okay if thats not an option. Budget doesnt matter, I have more than enough money to cover it.  Demensions:
3-13/16" (9.68 cm) long
2-7/16" (6.19 cm) wide
3/4" (1.91 cm) deep

It can be done but there is no point trying to put both bass and full range in a single tin like that. The sound quality is already going to be vary poor due to the tin. You add bass to that and you'll get even more vibration and distortion in the sound.

Look up how to make a nequalizer.

I already have plans for the amplifier one, ordering the parts now, my question is what speakers to use in the tin, and how could I get rid of the distortion?

Also I have a sony portable speaker which I ripped out the two two inch speaker, and circuit. What could I use for speakers, I like more low rang but still loud.

The speaker isn't an issue. The metal tin is the problem. Little speakers are able to give big sound when they are in a well designed and ported enclosure. Moving them into a tin you will loose a lot of that speaker's range. The nature of the tin means it will vibrate. Filling it with pillow stuffing and sealing the tin shut will help but the metal will still vibrate and distort the sound. For a speaker to work well the front and rear of the speaker will need to be isolated from each other. Headphones and ear buds can have thin materials between them cause the volume on them is low enough that the sound doesn't penetrate the housing vary well. Speakers on a thin metal tin are load enough that the audio out the back side of the speaker can pass through the metal and interfear with the audio out the front of the speakers.
