Websites with Zen Micro altoids case instructions? - Page 11

post #151 of 255

Yet another use for these tins

While looking for sites with the zen micro altoids case i found this. The idea was to take an ordinary pair of headphones and turn them in to speakers.



The sound is surprisingly loud and fills the room. You would be surprised by how much the tin amplifies it.

I'm interested in doing this for my Z.M and I was wondering If somebody can send step by step instructions to julianewus@yahoo.com. I would like to strip the paint off of the altoids case too. Thanks!

Also jadecould you tell me what type of padding did you use in your case on the bottom it looks as if it provides protection, as well as stability

two layers makes for a perfect fit, i used a drill to make a hole, and a dremel to shape it for my plug

Do you have problems closing your case because I see you're using the soft matierial on the top of the case too.

it closes perfectly. they make diffrent thicknesses so just figure out which ones right for you

but on the bottom of your altoids case it looks textured and it isnt the foam stuff I know that, unless you got a different kind

its just fabric from a cd sleeve. foam padding would have raised the ZM up higher than i wanted... i would have had to cut into the lid for the headphone jack, so i decided to just line it with cloth so it doesnt get scratched up

I was reading on this thread and found that electric tape is good for this project, but I have found that hockey tape works better. You should be able to find this at your local sports store. for those who live in the U.S you can go to Academy Sports and outdoors, or Oschmans! the tape has a texture to it so it will keep the Z.M from sliding around. plus its the same height and thickness as electrical tape!

Use sandpaper to smooth it out. Roll it up or wrap it around a screw driver, and rotate it inside the hole.
