Here's how to make a real working paper plate speaker for under $1.00! *******www.thekingofrandom**** To all the MythBusters fans out there .. No offense to MythBusters is intended. I realize they busted the HouseholdHacker project that claimed using aluminum foil and a penny would work. However, I was motivated on this project mainly by the statement that "a paper plate speaker for less than a dollar, really is just too good to be true". This video is meant to be a fun way to show it can be done under $1. If copper wire is an issue, the TV hacking, and wire from the sump pump motor is to demonstrate that copper wire is everywhere, not just in stores. WARNING: Do not try hacking your TV at home. The capacitors may hold a charge and pose a risk of electric shock. This project should not be attempted without adult supervision and adequate training. Misuse, or careless use, of tools or projects may result in serious injury or death. Use of this video content is at your own risk. Music by *******www.danosongs**** (Gem Droids) and Kevin MacLeod - (Pure Attitude) *******www.incompetech**** Project inspired by: A book I read at Radio Shack on making a simple speaker, supplemented by Make Magazines video: ******* The idea of making a speaker out of a paper plate is intriguing, and to do it for under a buck is even better. But first, we'll have to understand how a speaker works.

We put the major battery brands to the test to find out which battery will give you the most bang for your buck! Get your free audio book: *******audible****/household Our testing process was fairly simple but effective. We used the exact same brand of flashlight (Maglite Xenon) all straight from the box. Each pair of batteries tested came from different stores around the Portland, OR area. Set 1 came from Fred Meyer, set 2 from Target and set 3 from Safeway. We did this to make sure we used different shipments and manufacturing dates from the battery companies. While the procedure was not necessarily scientific, it gives you an indication of what you might expect when purchasing not only batteries, but any product on the market today. It's always good to do your own research and make purchases based on what you find to work over a long period of time. The oddest result was with the Energizer 9x Ultimate. It did not perform as expected. After some research we found that this particular battery is mainly intended to be used in high-draw electronics such as digital cameras. However, the marketing on the box says it is GREAT for flashlights. Go figure...

New Videos Weekly: ******* Visit Audible: *******audible****/household Facebook: *******facebook****/DylanHacker Google+: ************/+HouseholdhackerTv Twitter: *******twitter****/HouseholdHacker Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a portable A/C for your home, just build one for $8 dollars and 10 minutes of your time! You can pick up a Styrofoam cooler for about $4 at most stores. Dryers vents cost about $2 dollars a pop. All you need after that is an old fan and some frozen bottles of water! Once your box is completed following the instructions in the video, simply add the frozen bottles of water and go to town. My home was 78 degrees and after running the box in the living room for a couple hours it dropped into the 60's which is fantastic on a hot day! If you load the cooler with frozen bottles, the cooler will last anywhere from 3-6 hours which gives you enough time to have another set of bottles freezing in the interim. This is great for single rooms on a hot day and will drop the overall temperature quite a bit. Enjoy!

Turn your smart phone into a professional camera with these simple directions. It's great for taking photos of small items that you might sell on Ebay or Etsy... even Craiglist. But you could apply this technique to larger subjects as well by using a TV instead of a computer monitor. Facebook me: *******facebook****/DylanHacker Twitter: *******twitter****/householdhacker
