    @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.

      A similar external monitor costs around $350. Even if you had to buy the screen, which is not the assumption here, you'd pay $30-50 for a 15" touch panel. The control board is around $30, and another $50 or so for the brass channels and plate. You won't total $350 unless you *_gold plate_* it :D And you cant' buy a *brass* touch USB-C/HDMI monitor anyway. This isn't about making the cheapest monitor, it's about having the _coolest_ monitor and making it yourself.

    Matt, at first I already love these stuff. And then I found your youtube channel and watched almost every video in the channel. You inspired me and now I'm deciding to make this with wood and aluminium for a medium thickness and intermediate level. I'm only 14 though, so I can't cut things by myself. I'll have to take it outside to let them cut the wood and the aluminium. But can you answer my question please? Can I know what thickness the brass board and U channels are? And what size of the U channel did you use? Does it need to be 2 or 3mm thick? And can you add some purchasing links for the pin connectors? I also want to know what screws you used for this project because I'm not familiar with screws. Thanks for your time, and I hope to watch more cool videos like this. :))
