Step 1: Step 1: Assembly

I chose to use a wood bowl because I think the sound is better. Glass would be a close second. You can use a plastic bowl or even a paper bowl. Just make sure your phone fits inside the bowl. Turn your music on your phone and place phone into bowl with the speaker of the phone facing down. Adjust volume to suit. The bowl will double, if not triple the sound. It seems the closer the speaker is to the bottom of the bowl without touching makes it louder. I'm sure that the deeper the bowl is, the louder your music will be. If you try this, Comment below and tell me what you think.
