    Hey, first post here cause i'm not a huge AV fan, but need some help/advice/flaming :D

    Just brought some passive speakers for my Ipod (mp3 player for everyone outta the loop). They are very quiet, and I would like to make a small amp between the Ipod and the speakers.

    The speakers have a sticker on the bottom saying:

    impedance = 8 ohms
    rated output power = 2x500mW
    maximum output power = 2x1W

    I have at my disposal:

    # Soldering Iron + solder
    # Old sound card
    # wire
    # rechargable battery (9V)

    Can also buy compenents. I guess what i'm really askin is can i bodge something together to make an amp, or do i need to buy some stuff and make a circuit (need a circuit diagram if that is the case).

    Any help appreicated

    Ben
