I don’t know how well passive phone speakers really work. Are they really that good or are they just a fancy way to hold your phone upright? I made one and tested the sound quality with and without the speaker to see.

People are always looking for woodworking project ideas, especially around the holidays. The best woodworking gifts are the ones that you batch out, don’t cost a fortune, but still look beautiful and show your woodworking skills. I figured a passive speaker might be a good idea for a project. Since I’ve never used one, I felt it was important to also show the difference in sound with and without the speaker.
