  • its too delicate I think... i would want something less thin perhaps with the speakers built into the frame and more sturdy. Also I would add a cover so when you want to take it with you you just close the lid

  • Nice. Can we make the whole bottom bezel as a speaker that would be awesome

  • I really want to do this project with the computer monitor that I have but I'm really having a hard time looking for a board that is USB type-c for power that doesn't use micro HDMI. The barcode for my monitor is HR215WU1-210 If anyone can help me find a short sleek board that doesn't take so much space that would be much appreciated. I've been looking for a couple of days now but I still haven't found any

  • @12:00 he says "Earlier I provisionally added some wires to the control board's speaker output, so that these sockets could be easily hooked up to the boards internal amplifier allowing the drivers to just be clipped in place when required." Diagram please or video showing and explaining, I'm kind of new to this. But my father in law has a machine shop that I can use whenever I'd like to use. So was that just something you wanted to keep how to do to yourself sir? Now I have a touch screen monitor I attached to my PS5 and I don't know where to wire and attach the speakers to. This is supposed to be a D.I.Y project, I can't D.I.M.S if I don't know how to connect the speakers as you did, I hope you left a wiring diagram in the description for us. Other than that brilliant, beautiful, and very useful. I keep 2, 10,000 mAh battery banks ready which actually allowed me to get 12 hours of continuous use once the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra battery life 🔋 was depleted. Including the internal Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra battery and the 2 battery banks I got from Wal-Mart for $9.99 each, I would say with the screen turned on without speakers (because someone didn't tell us how to connect the wires to the board's internal amplifier) I get about 13 1/2 hours of continuous use because I use my Pulse 3D Wireless Headset with my PS5. Would be great if you could have added a BT (Bluetooth) feature so we could connect to Bluetooth speakers and have surround sound. I watch movies on my PS5 also in true 4K!

  • I really like your videos - especially ones like this with some novelty functionality. BUT it's very bad advice to use something highly conductive like brass as a DIY housing as it's just way to easy to short some connections and destroy all your electronics with that. So, please - people at home - use MDF or whatever plastics you like to recreate this, just don't use brass/aluminium or some other metal and destroy your weekend dreams with it!

  • Umm honestly, DIY Perks, good job, but i was wonder if there was perhaps a way to find a 5Volt trace on the "screen controller" and use that to charge the battery? I have a feeling like you tried it, but it maybe impacted the screen performance? If not, then im happy to hear your feedback! Great video.
