Help, how do I wire this speaker together? Answered
Hi, I'm doing an A Level project at College, and I'm making an MP3/iPod speaker system. I'm using a 3.5mm headphone jack to connect my iPod to my speaker.
I followed these instructions to wire my headphone jack to my speaker, and it worked!:
However, I want it to be a little louder, and it mentioned using an amplifier between the speaker and the headphone wire. Also I want to use a 9v battery to power my speaker, instead of using my iPod battery.
I'm new to electronics.
I've got a 6 ohm, 6-10watt speaker.
I searched for a cheap amplifier at Maplins, and I've found a 1watt ampilifer kit, would that be ok, would it be enough to boost the volume a little? The reason why I have to buy a cheap one is because I need to stay on a low budget (specification related).
So how would I wire/connect the headphone jack, the amplifier, the 9v battery connector and the speaker into one circuit?
This is the 1watt amplifier I have found:
Thanks for reading, and I hope you'll be able to help me :)
