check wires.....if you have 4 or 5 wires,BT module are in usb connection,plug and play on own motherboard....

try with multimeter to discovery positive,ground an data + and -......also,if you have datasheet on module,check on internet .....bonne chance....

Do you think it would be possible to use a bluetooth module from a laptop to get a wireless boombox or wireless headphones? Or would it need to have some other "fancy" circuitry attached to send an audio signal?

you have many projects about boombox bluetooth inside "instructables" website.....

if it possible, I would have already done....he he......

the circuit need collaboration with a OS (operating sistem)like windows....

you can use a simply bluetooth adapter(stereo)(buy for 15 dollar) and connect it to the jack boombox (build yourself with sistem speaker for PC at 10 dollar).it's easy to make.....
