    I decided to make this dock today. At first it was going to be a simple charging/syncing dock, but it evolved into a dock with charging/syncing, two internal speakers, and two aux headphone jacks in the back. For the aux jacks I actually took a headphone/ microphone input from a broken pc and soldered it to the audio input from my broken iDog, then used to headphone wire that came with the iDog to connect the internal speakers, iPod, and aux jacks. I am very happy with how it turned out. I was also going to try to put in sound reactive LEDs but I could not figure anyway to do it without another outside power source, so I left that out and instead decided to do the aux jacks. I kinda went a little crazy with painter's tape on the inside lol, but I figure if i need to fix/ improve anything it is easily removed.

    Let me know what you think of it.

    Thank you. Sweet (about the case). It's a great case!

    Thanks, I had a roll of painters tape laying around, so i figured i'd use it. I would have rather used duct tape, but I didn't have any. I definitly went a little crazy with the tape tho. lol
