Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Asemble the Parts

1.Fist begin by cutting of the unnecessary hose clamps, I used a side cutter.

2. Solder the female earphone jack to the wires and finally to the earphone speaker.
   As you might be wondering by now, Yes its a mono setup. Connect the ground of the stereo cables together,and then the color coded wires to each other.By doing so you convert the stereo setup to mono.

4.It may be a good idea to test the rig now  by plugging it into a audio source.

5.Slip the earphone jack down the hose shaft.

6. Skew back the other shell of the connector.

7.Plug in and enjoy..

Step 2: Future Improvements

This is so simple hack...

I would have been nice to maybe amplify the speaker or maybe finding a better quality speaker.
