Current Problems with speakers... Answered
Hey guys, I've uploaded some pictures of my problem.
What I have here is an attempt to add bass to my speakers - I'm a newb, so this isn't going so well. The music is comeing from an iDock, and is being routed in parallel to a set of computer speakers. The right speaker has volume & tone knob, the left is simply plugged into the right.
I unplugged the left speaker, took the circuitry out, and connected its input & output to a larger bass speaker - quickly was I suprised with a smoking capacitor (lol how healthy!) so... what should I do, simply add a resistor?
Edit: Note the resistor (brown red red = 12k? or 1.2k?) is only in series with the LED and is not affecting the bass speaker. I am just wondering how a bass speaker could draw MORE amperage than the small speaker without any circuitry?
