    heres a speaker i decided to make today.
    it fits behind my iPod in its case and thats how it stays on.
    it sounds great(the speaker came from an broken pair of Altec Lansings or whatever)
    the speaker is just a bit wide and it runs off my iPod battery.


    here are some photos:

    the speaker sticks out about 1 1/2" from the back.
    so yeah any feedback is good.

    what if u made it flat against the back of ur case, it might not get the same sound direction but i think it would look a little better and amke it even more compact

    just a suggestion

    The one thing that worries me is the speaker magnet that close to my iPod. (degauzing, anyone?)
    Besides there's a really nifty speaker hookup that looks like a lego, that mounts to the bottom of the iPod. Sells for $25.

    Nice work man!
    They are not elegant or anything for obvious reasons, (DIY speakers...)
    but they definitely come in handy!

    Preeetty good...
