Hard Drive Speaker Mod is Awesome


Have some extra hard drives sitting around? If so, this just may be the project for you. It doesn't take too many tools and makes your drive into a speaker, and who wouldn't want that?

The project was shown on and is a great way to reuse a hard drive that's broken or no longer used. It's essentially done by connecting wires to the head of the drive and creating vibrations and therefore sound. I personally was intrigued enough to make one myself and I must say, the sound is decent, although somewhat distorted at times. Anyways, what are you waiting for? Go check out this unique project.

This seems pretty dangerous to me. If the platter cracks while it's spinning, the shards are going fast enough to kill you. And being open to oxidization and other environmental factos makes this more likely of happening.

There's a difference between living on the edge, and having a death trap sitting a few feet from you lol.

Not saying people shouldn't try things like this. But I wouldn't advise using this constantly lol. It's one of those things that you do, and then you pack it away or just have it as decoration. Maybe switching it on once in a while for friends and such.
