8 Creative DIY Speaker Projects
Sound speakers don’t have to be dull: be creative and construct your own one-of-a-kind DIY speaker design inspired by these eight stunning speaker projects.
A good speaker may transform your home entertainment system. It captures the real scale of sound, drastically altering traditional audio-related experiences such as music listening, movie watching, and gaming into immersive, unrivaled experiences you’ll adore. The problem is that the best speakers are frequently expensive.
Despite advancements in audio technology, the fundamental principle behind sound generation in all speakers remains the same today. You can always make your own to save money and be more creative with the design. Here are eight interesting speaker projects to get you started.
3D Printed Speakers With Lights
3D printing technology, often known as additive manufacturing, has advanced significantly. Once reserved for rapid prototyping, 3D printing is now one of the most versatile technologies available, capable of producing practically anything, including these highly odd 3D printed speakers with lights, as described in the Instructables tutorial.
These drool-worthy speakers were printed on a high-end Objet Connex 500 for super-fine detail to demonstrate the great possibilities of modern-day 3D printers, but the design could be altered for an ordinary 3D printer. The speakers also have an audio-reactive LED system that enriches audio-listening experiences by diffusing light via transparent pillars on the speaker in real-time.
Build a Dodecahedron Speaker
Dodecahedron shapes are uncommon in nature, let alone in speakers, so this one-of-a-kind design will surprise and delight. It’s not only pleasing to the eyes, but also to the ears, thanks to the 12 speakers. They ensure that high-quality sound is delivered from all sides, making this spatial speaker an excellent complement to any entertainment system.
It has a 3D-printed frame, making it a project worth looking into if you have access to a 3D printer. A sleek copper pipe geometric stand, as well as wire wool, adhesive pads, cable, washers, and screws, are non-printable parts. For additional information on the project, see this Instructables tutorial.
DIY Speaker with Mini Solar Power Bank
Consider a solar-powered speaker that also serves as a battery bank for your smartphone when needed! Before you cry impossible, it does exist, and as the step-by-step Instructables guide emphasizes, you don’t need to be an electronics whiz to construct one. Once you’ve gathered all of the necessary materials, you’ll only need a drill, coping saw, and a soldering iron to complete it. What’s the best part? It’s quite portable.
Portable DIY Bluetooth Speakers Firefly Jar
Want to see what occurs when light and sound are combined? Get a few glass jars, some frosted glass paint, the best portable Bluetooth speaker kit you can find, a Li-ion battery, an LED string, a soldering iron, a glue gun, a drill, a hole saw, and a multimeter, and then follow the Instructables method to construct a portable Bluetooth speaker.
What were the outcomes? A gorgeous firefly jar speaker that you can take anywhere and effortlessly connect to your smartphone to listen to your favorite tunes. It also makes a fantastic gift, particularly during the holiday season when your loved ones are in the urge to hang up fairy lights to welcome the holiday spirit.
Concrete Speakers with Multiple Glows
If you prefer to decorate your home with one-of-a-kind products or simply enjoy electronic items with an eye-catching design, you’ll adore these multi-glow concrete speakers. Unlike commercial concrete speakers that just have the patina finish and are made of other materials, these are made of actual concrete, making them highly distinctive, durable, and a fantastic complement to any living space regardless of the interior motif.
Even better, they have RGB LED illumination and are audio-responsive, so each song comes with an engaging live display. While the project is a little complicated, the finished product is well worth the effort, and the Instructables guide methodically explains down each step so that it’s simple to follow.
DIY Speakers Inspired by Steampunk

Steampunk, which emerged in the 1980s as a subculture take on history and a science-fiction sub-genre, is quickly becoming the next big thing in the world of interior design. While it may not appeal to everyone, it is impossible to ignore its distinct beauty.
Want to follow the trend by steampunking a room in your house but don’t know where to begin? As detailed in the Instructables guide, these pair of steampunk speakers is a great beginning to start implementing the style into your house.
Speaker PCB Motherboard
Don’t throw away your sound system if you recently damaged it but some pieces, such as the speakers, are still usable. To construct this really spectacular, yet high-performance PCB speaker, follow this Instructables guide to reuse the speakers and the PCB motherboard.
Cube of Concrete Passive Speakers
If you liked the multi-glow concrete speakers above but found them too difficult to construct, this concrete speaker cube is an intriguing option. It has no wiring, electronics, or batteries, and is just composed of concrete and wood, making it accessible to everybody, including first-time DIYers.
It should be noted that it is intended to magnify the sound from your smartphone. So it’s ideal if you enjoy listening to music while cleaning the dishes, making supper, or working in your home office but don’t want to spend money on a phone speaker amplifier. It will make your phone sound far superior to when you try to amplify it by placing it inside a cup. To make yours, simply blend concrete and wood as described in the Instructables DIY guide.
