IPOD WOODEN PASSIVE AMPLIFIER - SUNFLOWER! by MassoGeppetto IPOD WOODEN PASSIVE AMPLIFIER - SUNFLOWER! by MassoGeppetto
This amplifier is born following a tutorial on youtube, it is a very funny piece to do especially if you have pieces
of wood that you do not know how to use or you need to throw away. In this case I used 4 pieces of fir tree , the first three were
drilled to create a sounding board and have been glued together. Once I had glued , I made the channel for the sound transmission and the housing for the ipod. After this procedure I pasted the fourth piece :-) After that,  I sanded the piece and I did
carvings, and stained with blue enamel and wrought iron to create the metallic color. The sounding board and
carvings were colored with golden enamel to make them stand out.
The passive amplifier is natural and does not need electricity to make it work, it amplifies the sound of the iPod even up to
10 times and I think it is great for listening to radio and podcast!

EDIT: Wooow another DD! 
Thanks to :iconbrookette: for featuring my work!
A kiss to my girlfriend :iconfrandali: for the support during these months :heart:

Trust me buddy, a solid state amplifier could rock this thing's socks off. passive amplifiers simply widen the existing sound.

Well, yes, I am aware they are not equal.  But do you need it that loud?  I understand you would need louder music for say a party, but just to have music in your room?

It's not about loudness, it's about accurateness and clarity. The iphone speaker is a very bad quality piece of equipment, and is very poor for accurate sound reproduction.  Some high fidelity speakers use this principle, which is a dumbed down version of a Folded Horn Enclosure.

yes it is true, it isn't a BOSE amplifier, but I liked the idea and I made it, I was curious about the result :-) I use it everyday, expecially for playing podcast...the voice is very clear :-)
Thanks for the comments!
