There are commercially produced stomp boxes available, but performers often[how often?] simply mount a dynamic microphone inside whatever wooden box they have handy. Some homemade stomp boxes include customized features such as a built-in preamp or equalizer.
In 2010s-era use, a simple piezo transducer (or sometimes a microphone) is located inside the box to allow amplification of the stompbox's bass sound through the PA system or bass amplifier.

Press on the cone of the speaker. If you feel any grinding, the voice coil is blown. It should move in and out smoothly with no grindy grindy. Dont push on the dust cap (center cap) you may make it implode.
It also may require a little more umph to move it.
If it's a poly cone, it may need a little more power to move it. A paper cone should be able to move with a lower powered amp running it no problem.

When we used to busk on the street, we used a rig like this. That samsonite has a sweet tone!!

No pick up then seems to be one of the main issues.
