Altoids Speaker

Introduction: Altoids Speaker

About: i love to build stuff, self teaching myself more and more.

Today I will show you how to make an Altoids Speaker, I apologize in advanced for making a tutorial off of a finished project!! Enjoy!

Step 1: Items Required

1. 3-4 Altoids Tins

2. 2 Speakers (I got my Circuit and Speakers from 5 Below)
3. 1 Amplifier Circuit for The Speakers
4. 1 Drill
5. 1 Screwgun
6. 12 (one inch) screws
7. 2 Pieces of Foam 4x4 (optional)
8. 1 Hot Glue Gun
9. 1 Piece of Poplar 3x2 1 1/2 foot long (optional)
10. Spray Paint (optional)
11. 1 Drill bit 1/8 or whatever size you desire
12. 1 Battery Pack (optional)

Step 2: Drilling

First You will want to drill the holes for running the speaker wires, and the hookups in the front for the A/C input and the Auxiliary Cable.

Step 3: Glueing

Glue the Circuit in.

Step 4: Assembling

Put in the Speakers, running the wires through the holes, hook it up to the circuit.

Step 5: Battery Pack

If you so choose, you could glue a external battery pack to the top of the Altoids Tin containing the circuit.

Step 6: Attaching

Attach the Project to the wood with screws in each Tin, in this formation

Step 7: Paint It

I personally didn't do a good job painting, but if done correctly it could add a great touch and make it look sharp.

Step 8: You Are Completed

Have fun with your project!!

    Haha Yea, The speakers I have didn't have bass, so red hot chili peppers sounded great, along with most 90's music!
