I had a few extra Mountain Dew cans and El Crappo speakers lying around, and so I thought I might be able to combine two usless pieces of junk into one still-usless-but-somewhat-interesting piece of junk. And I did it all without a dremel! All I used was a knife, metal file, glue gun, scissors, elecrical tape, and philips screwdriver. The hardest part was getting the green can cut out the right way so the card would fit. You can see how I couldn't fit what used to be in one speaker into one can, so I had to use two cans. I found that I was one can short of what I needed, so I had to slug down another can... at 9:30 AM. Ugh. Fortunately it was Live Wire, so it tasted remotely like Orange Juice. Over all, I think I burned off a few skin cells with the super glue, but the fatalities were minimal considering this was my first mod. :) The one thing that's bothering me is that everything that's played through it sounds like it's inside a tin can.

|Meh, Sorry, that last one was me. you should convert a 2-liter bottle into a Subwoofer, and use a 20oz for the speaker controller. you could control the volume by turning the bottle cap. hey, that's a good idea! okay, expect to see one of those soon. :) thanks for the inspiration! 5/5!|
