First shot at a passive iPhone speaker from some scrap wood I had. Top is walnut, middle section in birch and bottom is thermally modified ash.

These speakers(passive) always interest me, do they actually work and to what degree?

There’s definitely a difference but not a huge one. I’m guessing the design is critical to how well it works. I think the middle piece is too thick on this one making the opening too big. Hopefully the next one works better.

These really do make a difference in the sound level and in some instances quality

I made mine so that I can hear people as we speak hands free and for face time. The wife loves it and that makes it all worth it right? Obviously I need to make another for myself. This is a design I have not seen before. Looks good to me…
