Introduction: How to Make a DIY Extra Bass Speaker From JBL Flip 5 Teardown
Since I was a little boy, I have always had a passionate interest in making DIY things. These days, I start to think of handmade bluetooth speakers that save money and help me have fun doing things myself.
Then I decided to build an extra bass speaker with JBL Flip 5 Teardown and foam (formex). It took me just a few hours to finish the project. I am quite satisfied with its sound quality.
In this instructable, I am going to share how to make a DIY Extra Bass Speaker from JBL Flip 5 Teardown as well as all the tips and tricks to get the best results.

Step 1: Preparing Materials
I bought all the materials from local stores and on online shopping websites like Shopee.
Let's make a part list:
- 15w Speaker (2x) from JBL Flip 5 Teardown
- 2*15W YDA138 (Yamaha) Bluetooth Amplifier Board
- Passive Radiator Speaker
- Battery Level
- Battery Charger Protection Board
- 18650 Li-on battery (3x)
- Switch ON/OFF
- Power Jack Female
- 5mm Foam (Formex)
- 12V 2A Adapter
Of course, I also need some tools such as snap-off knife, soldering iron, compass, screwdrivers, rulers, etc.
Step 2: Making the Speaker Case and Spraying
To make the speaker case, I use foam (formex) and black spray paint.
You can use some decal papers to make your speaker look so cool :)))
Step 3: Starting With the Electronics!
- Making the 3S battery pack
- Sticking the speaker driver into the case.
- Soldering all parts together.
