iPod speakers made out of iPods via HackedGadgets. Jordan writes-

I took a pair of speakers, and put them in two of the original iPods where the scroll wheels normally were. I was looking through a bunch of old stuff when I came across my original iPod. I had long ago scavenged it for parts, so I came up with another use for it. Although I already had the iPod speaker “shell”, I wanted to make two speakers so that it could be stereo sound. My iPod speaker shell was barely recognizable with too many scratches to count, so I ordered two front panels and two back panels.

The total cost ended up around 100 USD for everything. It was mostly the shipping prices that made it so expensive. If I had spent some more time finding cheaper prices, or finding the parts locally, the cost would have been about 60 USD.

The speaker size that is needed is 2.25 inches. I couldn’t find any online, so I went to a local electronic surplus store and had them order two for me. Unfortunately, when I test fitted the speakers into the iPod, they were just a little too deep, so I dremeled the back just a little.
