    When the platters aren't spinning, the plastic pads on the undersides of the readers tend to stick to the platters. When you feed an audio signal through the readers' magnetic coil, it makes them vibrate, and they in turn vibrate the platters.

    The only problem is they don't vibrate the platters in the direction that would produce the greatest sound output (which would be along the rotational axis of the spindle motor), and so it sounds like shit -- very quiet shit, no less.

    You explained how it works, I meant how is it done? Where do you connect the amps wires to?

    :confused:

    You open the drive to access the voice coil directly.
