Introduction: How to Salvage a Magnet From a Speaker
If you have any useless speakers I really recommend you doing this
If you already have only the speaker skip to step 6
Step 1: The Tools You'll Need
Philips Screwdriver or a Drill Or A Drill
Step 2: Cut
I cut off the acoustic diffuser to reveal the speaker
Step 3: Take the Off Plastic Shield
I was able to pull it off easily
Step 4: You'll Need a Screwdriver
Open the screws to take the speaker out of the box.
Step 5: This Is the Speaker
By the way this is a 4 OHM 3 WATT speaker
Step 6: Use Your Knife Again
Cut the diaphragm (paper cone) off, And then pull it out with the coil
Step 7: The Hardest Part
Stick the flat screwdriver between the magnet and the basket of the speaker.
The best way to do it is by turning the screwdriver between the magnet and the basket and the speaker and with a lot of strength pry them apart
You can also do this by hitting the screwdriver with a hammer (I had to come up with the first way after the metal part of the magnet scratched my floor)
Step 8: This Is the Magnet
This is the first magnet I ever found that was rusted, But It is still pretty strong
Step 9: It's Stronger Than You Think
This magnet can easily pick up a drill I made myself which weighs more than 900 grams (32 ounces).
