This is my altoids speaker that I just finished enjoy!
Watch the video to see how loud it gets.

Step 1: Tools and Parts

All the parts and tools needed are listed below:
Saudering iron
sauter
old speaker
altoids can
drill
skrewdriver
drill brush
wire
1 1/4in. hole driller
heat shrink

Step 2: Drilling

Drill two holes and hot glue some paper on to the bottom of the can so it won't short circuit.
Also drill holes onto the side for a switch and the led.

Step 3: Test

Test the speakers and chip!

Step 4: Hot Gluing

Start hot gluing the tin can together and watchout don't get too much on the chip!
To glue the speakers just set it down aligned with the holes and just circle around with the glue gun.

Step 5: Done!

Test that your speaker works after every step their were some weird and hard to find problems with this thing.

    This isn't how to "Make" a speaker, more of how to transfer an already made speaker device into an altoids tin. Making a speaker would require a way to amplify the volume coming from the headphone line, which is what the old speaker board does.

    with all of the spare space you have in the altoids tin, why position the two speakers to the side and house the battery inside the tin?
