IKEA Hack: Beautiful Spherical, Wooden Wireless Speakers

Upon completing this project, Charles couldn’t sleep…and for good reason. Birch salad bowls from IKEA house hacked wireless speakers to create amazing modern and moveable music blasters for outdoors or in.

“On Friday I had the idea. I was thinking about the christmas in July party and how it was such a pain to not only wire up the lights but also the speakers.  So, I went about searching for wireless speakers and I found these ones made by Rocketfish.  Suddenly the idea hit me.  I can’t remember where I first saw it, perhaps the MAKE blog, but on the internet I came across an image of this speaker sphere.  Somebody had taken two red salad bowls and installed numerous speakers around it.  I always thought it was a great idea for a party.  I decided it was time for me to do something similar.”  

The inside photos make this project look scarier than I’m sure it is… it’s just the pre-made speaker guts spread out to balance inside the bowl.
