Here’s my version of the passive cell phone amplifier. I wanted to try something a little different.
I like how it sounds. It’s sound is hard to describe, it adds some depth, similar to reverb. It’s not that much louder, but I can hear it across the room better than without it. Anything helps the little speaker built into the phone.
Building it was trial and error. I intended for it to have a bottom, but it sounds better without it. I did put some small cushioned feet on it, lifting it about 1/8”.
I used 1/8” baltic birch ply fitted into grooves in the corner posts. The frame that supports the phone is a tight fit, then CA glued in place.
I tried my daughters Samsung phone in it. It would probably fit if I removed the case, it’s a little too thick. Oh well, I guess I have to keep it for myself. I have some ideas floating around in my head for some different ways to do it.
4 & 1/2” x 4 & 1/2” x 7” bb ply and walnut. BLO.
