Fabric Speakers

Fabric Speakers by Hannah Perner-Wilson (plusea) was Inspired by Marcelo Coehlo’s paper speaker and Vincent Leclerc’s Accouphene textile speaker, these paper and fabric speakers are made by running 5-9V sound amplified signal through a very conductive coil in close proximity to a magnet (Kobakant, 2012).

Although some of the speakers use a laser cutter to produce their designs using conductive fabric this isn't necessary. Depending on the fabirc scissors, Stanley knife or metal cutters can also be used - carefully!

You can also get more information about the construction process here and Kobakant offers a number of E-textile activities for you to try.
