Playing with the anti-gravity properties of speakers. The fun thing is if you push on one screw, the others move. And if the points aren't placed near the center, they don't stand up.

Just for fun.

Well of course, it's a smaller diameter and has a shallow cone!

If you turn the lights off you can see an Aurora caused by particles from the sun being deflected by the speakers magnetic field.

OK, Mr. Cal. Just playing around with magnets while building speakers. I'm easily distracted.

I came close to dancing on my first speaker build.
Screwdriver on front of speaker bolt and spanner on rear.
Slipped and screwdriver went right through the cone !
I pulled the paper back and glued it and it worked fine for many years.
