    Just 1 suggestion, I would add a 10 ohm 10w resistor in the speaker lead in series with the SSR input so that your amp sees a proper load instead of the near short circuit the LED input of the SSR presents. Otherwise good project !!

    While it is good practice to add a series resistor to an LED circuit, if you look at the Crydom SSR PDF, you will note that they have added a 1500 ohm internal resistor for you !

    Is there a relay that works with DC voltages instead of AC. I am wanting to make 3V vibrating motor activate on sound.

    Thanks a lot man! If you use the same solid state relay (D2W203F) it should work fine. I attached the data sheet and it says it will work up to 280V AC. Not sure what you mean by a 4 way extension lead?
