    I've done this with many Bluetooth headphones and smaller speakers this does not work unless a new mosfet higher driver is put in. the headphones themselves do not have a high enough mosfet driver to power these speakers that's the one thing that was not included into this build.

    Brilliant. Buying two matching Bluetooth speakers that are capable of stereo pairing is $$$. Could be easily adapted to some old second-hand/ thrift store computer or TV system speakers instead of building an entire enclosure.

    Honestly the bose had better highs. I probably would have opted for a real silk dome tweeter or even a small planar driver as the top instead of a 2 full range mid woofers. They doo like like nice speakers though and I had never considered using headphones in this fashion. Cool idea.

    Video idea: Battery replacements! For anything really. Im about to replace the NiCd batteries of my bosch cordless drill with Li Ion batteries, and i realised i dont know anything about battery voltages.
    You could talk about how to get more juice out of the thing, by putting the cells in parallel, or how serial increases the voltage, it would be cool as hell!

    Kind of ridiculous to not include a charging circuit. You didn't have to do separate batteries if you had included an isolation transformer and a switching regulator for the bluetooth portion. The single battery pack would have made it much easier to include a charging circuit inside would would have made these WAY more convenient.

      Even with the high cost I may actually attempt this one with some minor modifications, maybe a wireless charging base. I was looking for bluetooth speakers that are capable of wireless stereo; settled on JBL Charge 4, two of them would cost as much as this project, but with this project I can design the speakers to match the contemporary decor in my home office.

    This would make a great Etsy thing, you ask for broken down earbuds and sell them for repurposing. As you can't buy the old stuff and then resell it, you gotta repurpose it for money, but not buy the earbuds, otherwise copy right.

    This guy clearly doesn't understand audio. These are NOT stereo speakers. Left for "low" and right for "refined" LOL what?!? You get stereo separation between your treble and bass speakers which is terrible! You need to split the left signal for one speaker and the right signal for the other!!!
