[other] Soldering Laptop Speakers

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi everyone, I got a couple laptop speakers that I salvaged from my brothers laptop and I've trying to mod them a bit. I took a 3.5mm male cable, split it open, and soldered the grounds, rights, and lefts together, making a portable set of 1.5W speakers. However, the sounds coming out is about earbud volume, not laptop speaker volume. Can anyone help with this? Is there a way to make them as loud as they were in a laptop? Thanks in advance! -Ryan (Hardware)
