We’ve seen a number of instances where 3D printed enclosures are made for speakers. But have you ever heard of a 3D printed speaker as wellInstructables user Mattosx has created a fully 3D printed speaker that utilizes neodymium magnets to create crisp sound
Thanks to Instructables user Mattosx, now you have! The maker recently shared his step-by-step process detailing how to build an entirely 3D printed speaker.
This simple speaker box design utilizes neodymium magnets to generate a permanent magnetic field. When the electric current is sent through the coil, a temporary magnetic field is created, attracting the magnetic field from the magnet. This interaction causes vibration that we interpret as sound.
Want to learn how to conjure up sound using 3D printed parts and magnetic magic? Let’s take a closer look at what you need and how to build this interesting, yet simple, 3D printed speaker.
Once you have the 3D printed parts prepared, it’s time to assemble the speaker box. The Simple Version consists of just two parts with the magnet wire routed outside of the box. The slightly more complex Cooler Version uses two machine screws and nuts to attach the speaker box to the base, while the wire is routed out of the back of the speaker box and through the white stand.
Next, you’re going to fit the speaker wire into the lower speaker box. Sand off the enamel wire and connect it with the magnet wire. Finally, add the top speaker cover, and, if you decided to go for the more complex version, mount the speaker grill with the machine screws.
