Introduction: Computer Woofer Mod(to See Vibrations From the Speakers)

About: a teenage who loves science and thecnology and loves to build stuff


Many people have woofers.And they are pleased with it.
But
Listening to music only is no fun.Most woofers don't have exposed speakers.they are mostly inside.
And those woofers that have speakers outside are expensive.They are for cars(pimp cars).
You wanna see speakers pumping bass according to the music.What can you do?
With this mod,you can simulate the vibrations of the speakers

Step 1: What You Need

you'll need just a few items
*scissors
*markers(your choice of colors)
*paper(A4paper is not a bad idea)
*tape

Step 2: First!

cut a strip of paper out
best cut it thin and long
I would recommend 1cm X 8cm

Step 3: Fold It

fold it like this on both sides

Step 4: Done Folding?

now color it with cool graphics!
make sure the graphic you draw is stripes and letters.
mines not that nice but you can try many kinds of style that suit you.

Step 5: Done Everything? Now Turn on the MUSIC!!!

here's a video of it working
song=lady sovereign-love me or hate me


Step 6: Troubleshoot

paper rattling
your paper is too thick/wide

no vibrations
add more volume
widen your paper

Good luck on it
yup.

    My Coby speaker system has an exposed woofer. I got it at big lots for $25 a few years ago.

    Why not just cut a hole in the side and stick a window in it?

    naaah he means cut a hole in the side (so you can see the speaker) and put glass or clear perspex or whatever over the hole... i dont recommend it tho coz i dont get my kicks off watching the sub movement. haha

    i think josho means cut a hole and install a window in your speaker enclosure so you can see the cone moving.

    nor would i. just explaining. but if you did make the window with plexiglass and made it seal correctly, it would be pretty cool with some leds in there. actually you maybe even able to make the cabinet out of plexiglass or lexan. that would be pretty sweet.

    Try this: Tape a small piece of tin-foil on the speaker cone. Turn on the music. Now shine a laser on the foil so it reflects on to a wall. Stare at your music.

    oh, but my street is getting re-paved today, so i might as well blast bass, and see which it louder, a jack-hammer, or my audio system (which i found in trash lol)
