Product Description

Note: this product does not include a speaker enclosure. If you’re looking for a kit that includes the enclosure, check out our Mason Jar Speaker KIT or Wooden Box KIT.

Let’s face it: the speakers on your phone & laptop aren’t loud enough.

Grab this KIT & build a speaker to play tunes from your smartphone & tablet. BUT WAIT: it’s also an electric guitar amplifier! Plug in & bust out those wicked solos. Great first project, you’ll have music after 22 solder joints. You pick your own enclosure and determine how to mount the electronics inside. Impress your friends with a speaker you built with your own hands!
