After seeing this:

I've decided it would be kind of cool to make a cab out of these kinds of speakers. I was wondering, though, what would the resistance be on that kind of speaker? I don't have funds or means to get meters to check it, but i was wondering 1) what would the resistance be and 2) how would you wire these into a 2 speaker cab (like whats a positive or negative terminal on teh speaker how to wire in series/parallel or whatever)?

Have you tried to make one of those speakers yet? I don't see how that could work... I'm quite sure its fake. Try to make one before you worry about the other stuff to see if its even real.

It looks like Bullshit,

and it smells like Bullshit,

so I don't need to taste it to know that it is Bullshit.

Do any of you?


lol @ how many people have broken perfectly good headphones to use the cable for this.

I wonder how many audio devices were ruined my having the output shorted, as well.

... and the amount of frustration felt by people when none of them could get this to work.


I still believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, but I DON'T believe in this. Does that make it any clearer for you?

I can see somebody plugging a tube amp into this and being stunned when they blow their output transformer from shorting the hot and ground.

heh yeah i realized shortly afterwards that this isn't gonna work..
damn, I'm stupid. Oh well. Good thing i didn't try wiring that to anything.

Anyways....

could using those principles make a viable speaker for a cab? (obviously not gonna use plastic cups as real speakers--just wondering if homemade speakers along those lines would be workable)

The cup is not the speaker itself, it's a "horn" to acoustically amplify the sound.

Yes, it should work. But consider things like this as pleasant toys to play with. You're not likely to improve on or even rival the quality of a factory produced speaker with one made from things in your kitchen.

btw, the link at the end of that page you linked to seems like a better choice.
