Basically I have a couple of high wattage speakers which are not worth selling (poor condition). I also have a rusty 48v dc motor. I want to finish them off by plugging them into the wall outlet. 


What will be best to use between the wall outlet and the item being destructed so I don;t blow fuses / damage the house wiring? Anything else I should be aware of outside of not touching a live circuit?

How about "don't"?

This has to be the stupidest thing I've ever seen somebody contemplate.

Sounds like a hammer would be a much safer and smarter solution

Don't? why not? Have seen plenty of videos of people plugging it straight into the wall on the internet. I want to do it for fun, in a safe manner, hence why I am asking. Obviously it is not ideal, I understand the basics of electricity. I could just throw the speakers out but where is the fun in that? I do not see what is darwin about asking advice on how to safely execute something, so maybe only comment if you have something useful to say?
