    All speakers can handle water to some point, i should probably edit this instructable, using standard speakers will make it splash resistant not completely waterproof, if you want to make it waterproof get something with plastic cone and rubber surround

    Great idea. I'm using a smaller version of this to build into the straps of my back pack. :D

    it uses TDA2822 IC in stereo configuration and its powered with 4xaaa (6V input)
    You can make your own TDA2822 amp in bridged configuration (if you have one speaker) and it will give 2-3W at 4Ohms (in stereo 1W/channel at 4Ohm)

    I've got to ask - have you tested these wet?

    And what do you mean by "waterproof"? Are they shower-proof? Submersible?
