Intro: Phone Amplifier Sound Box
This is a non-electronic amplifier for iPhone , iPod, or Androids. It makes a very enjoyable difference in volume and sound quality (much improved bass). You will need the following.
- 1 X 4 pine board
- 1/4 plywood
- Wood glue
- wood filler
- wood file, saw, drill
Cut out the parts as shown. Pay close attention the the angle cuts. Measurements are overall length.
Cut a 45 degree angle at each end of parts F and G.
Here is a view of how the pieces will be glued together.
Gluing complete. After the glue dries, fill in any defects and sand smooth. Note the placement of part H, which will be made in a later step. Part H will act as a rest for the phone to sit on when placed in the top slot.
This details the placement of the slot in the top cover (part G), which the phone will sit in. A drill and jigsaw works well here.
Cutting complete. Dress it up with a file and sandpaper.
Make part H (shown) from the piece cut out from step 5.
This shows the placement of part H in the bottom of the phone slot.
Glue on the top. Fill defects and sand smooth. Paint or stain and varnish.
