Chances are, you listened to music a lot when you were younger. Maybe you got curious as a kid or scrapper and took apart an old stereo or a speaker to see what was inside. Most of the time, you will just see a bunch of plastic or wood, and then you will find something interesting: a magnet. Many people wonder if these magnets are worth much money based on previous articles and videos that the iScrap App team has done on magnets. Unfortunately, we may be the bearer of bad news today.
What Are Stereo Speaker Magnets Made From?
Speaker magnets are ceramic magnets and have no metal in them. You won’t be able to take them and sell them to a scrap yard, but you can utilize them in your scrapping endeavors. You will be able to use these magnets to test ferrous vs. non-ferrous metals, and that will prove to be a very worthwhile tool to have on hand. Sometimes, you can never have enough magnets around, especially when you are on the road and some fall off your truck or even when scrounging around your shop or garage for every piece of scrap that’s fallen on the floor
