Tip & How-To about Sport & Outdoor - Others
Making a regular home made megaphone using poster board or cardstock is easy and anyone can do it, but you can easily take it up a notch and make an electric megaphone.
All you need is a poster board / cardboard, scissors, tape, a battery-powered speaker and a microphone with a chord.
Start by making a regular megaphone. Roll the cardboard into a cone and take the sides together. You want to make the cone as big as possible, the overlap should be as small as possible. Trim the edges of your cone so that they are all smooth and round.
To make your megaphone an electric megaphone connect a small speaker to the small end where you would normally put your mouth. The best speakers to use are bettery powered ones like the kind you would use to connect to your ipod. Using a very strong tape to connect the speaker to the megaphone making sure that the on / off switch is on the outside of the cone and accessible.
Plug the microphone into the speakers and attach it to the bottom of the speaker. When you switch the speaker on and talk into the microphone you voice will be amplified by the cone and your megaphone is ready to go!
You only have to connect the microphone to the bottom of the speaker if you want to have a one-handed set up.
