Create your own smartphone speakers

If you have a smartphone that simply isn’t performing acoustically then it isn’t necessarily the end of the world.


You could purchase a new smartphone but that seems a little extreme if everything else is working okay. You might even consider purchasing a pair of speakers to amp up the volume of your favourite music tracks but that may cost a pretty penny or two.


So, why not create your own smartphone speakers? You can find out how in our do it yourself guide.


Do it yourself smartphone speakers


You will need to grab a few bits and bobs from around the house including a pair of scissors or a knife and a pencil. Next you might like to check out what is heading for the trash.You will need a fairly large tube and two plastic cups but cardboard toilet roll holders would work just as well.


Do it yourself smartphone speakers


Step 1. The first step is to mark out and cut two forward facing holes in your tube for the plastic cups. Use the pencil and the bottom of the cup as a stencil.


Step 2. Now you need to cut off the bottom of the cup using the scissors or knife.


Step by step guide


Step 3. Insert the plastic cups into the holes of the tube.


Step 4. Now on the top of the tube mark out and cut a slot for your smartphone. It best to cut this slot towards the front of the tube so that it doesn’t roll backwards when the phone is put in place.


Step 5. Select your favourite playlist and insert the phone into your new smartphone speakers.

The results are pretty impressive taking the muffled sounds of rear mounted speakers and projecting them forwards. In our example we used the the Huawei Ascend Y550. This smartphone already has pretty good sound but our do it yourself smartphone speakers took it to a new level.

So there you have it, wireless smartphone speakers made from your trash that don’t require a power supply. How environmentally friendly is that?


Tip; Don’t forget to seal the ends of the tube if they are not already covered, unless you are looking to create surround sound!
