555 and Loudspeaker Audio Tone Circuit

This circuit uses a 555 timer IC and produces a fixed frequency audible tone that is played through a loudspeaker. No amplifier is necessary as the 555 puts out a signal of high enough amplitude. The circuit is easy to build for beginners in electronics and can be built on an electronic breadboard. Click the above link to find the circuit diagram.
