the modern day speaker and frankly, any other speaker works using MAGNETS, one is a standard earth magnet or permanent magnet and another is electronically controlled, as the electricity passes through a coiled copper wire, it causes a magnetic field around itself pulling itself towards the magnet behind it and making the speakers cone move backwards. doing this in quick succession creates sound. THIS IS A SHORT CIRCUIT, DO NOT TRY IT

Is this the same guy that made a video on how to make "glowing" eggs in your microwave. I wonder how many people fell for it only to have aspoded eggs to clean up.

I`ve made a speaker out of paper. You need lots of wire, a magnet and electricity for it to work. And its very hard to get right, which is why speakers are expensive.

Well, maybe not piezoelectric speakers, but the kind he`s "building" here...they require magnets.

You can call it bullpoo before trying it if you have an understanding of either physics or engineering... you probably got 2 working because you were able to create some sort of galvanic effect between dissimilar metals, likely only with pennies that had just the right amount of corrosion or something... otherwise, you need a magnet somewhere, and a coil in that magnetic field to have a speaker... hence... bullpoo... no I didn`t try it... it`s just bullpoo.

I know, it doesn`t work most of the time, but why do people just call bullpoo before trying it? I have, like, 2 after a dozen failed attempts.

Troll! There`s no way this could work. Worse, the lead wires are shorted out, which could damage or destroy any amp you connected it to.

I think they tried this on mythbusters... except they made like 30 of them and ended up wasting time because it doesn`t work.

I saw Household Hacker. Called BS right away.

Isn`t that the guy that tried to teach people how to make glowing easter eggs...?

Why are these out there? Are people that stupid?

As a side note:
Folks, twisting up a cable like that, so the positive and negative are touching, can damage sensitive audio equipment.

Don`t try this at home.

They will go nice with my new cinder-block speaker stands. Might clash with the milk crate coffee table though.

I`m no where near dumb enough to accept this, I`m not even dumb enough to laugh, unless someone posts a video of a paper plate 7.1 painstakingly built.

Oh, noes... Mythbusters have busted this one...
Still, I wonder how many people of the ones who view it today will report back that it doesn`t work (or does work depending on their agenda).
