hi guys long time since i wrote a tutorial, this tutorial tells you how you can use any old speaker lying around your house into a wireless bluetooth speaker, this can also be an cheap bluetooth audio device receiver for your car. This is not my original work, but modified(added a few steps/changed a few) tutorial from http://kmonkey711.blogspot.com who has also taken help from Colin CW, i am reproducing this tutorial because this is the only tutorial that worked for me and i don't want it to disappear from the World Wide Web when i really need it. thanks Kmonkey for this awesome tutorial. Another way to have an wireless speaker is using AIRPLAY here

Step 1: What you need?

1 Raspberry pi (i am running Occidentalis_v02.img from adafruit)
1 speaker
1 Male-to-male 3.5 mm audio jack
1 bluetooth dongle ( check here for list of devices that work ) do check using the command hcitool scan
1 ethernet connection for pi/ wifi (how to connect a wifi dongle to Raspberry pi) (all u need to do is edit "/etc/network/interfaces" file)
