I just found 4 speakers and want to make a speaker box. Can anyone help me? Answered
I found 4 speakers (2 subs about 5 inches diameter each and 2 tweets about 2 in diameter) in a TV that was left on the side of the road. I would like to make a speaker box for them, or a mini-amp for my electric cello. In either case, I have very little technical knowledge in this area, and will need some very clear instructions as to what I need.
I took from the TV:
4 speakers (see above)
Each speaker has a red and a black wire coming out the back of it (power cables presumably).
The smaller speakers are connected to the larger ones by similar cables. There are also two more cables similar to the others, but one is white and black, the other green and black. These connected the larger subs to the main power of the TV I think.
I also took the power chord from the TV. It has a connector that was joined to a plug inside the TV.
The speakers say on the back:
ZM YD150-B1-20W-8* for the larger speakers and
ZM YDG70-A1-10W-8* for the smaller speakers
* means the sign for ohms (my rather dusty chemistry knowledge from high school tells me this, I could be wrong, it's the omega sign from the Greek alphabet anyway)
That's all I think. I would like to know what I will need to make these speakers work, and if it is worth my while and not too expensive, and whether or not I will kill myself in the process. I have never done this kind of project, but have always fancied the notion. If anyone can help out, or even start me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Is there anything else I should take from the TV while it is there still? Like the line-in plugs etc?
