Hello! I am new here. I want to know if i can connect this type of speakers ( http://m.jbl.com/products/GTO609C_JBL_US ) to this amplifier( http://www.sony.ro/electronics/amplificatoare-auto/xm-n502 ) or with this one ( http://m.jbl.com/products/GX-A3001_JBL_US?skuId=GX-A3001_JBL_US&searchMode=regularProductOnly&sCatId=cat140033 )? I want to mention that i want to buy two pairs of speakers. If no, what amplifier do i need (may i increase the impedance of the speakers instead of changing the amplifier?) Thank you!

I have an idea for a multi-room audio system but am very much stuck with the know how. I have recently found Airfoil which allows you to transmit an audio stream over LAN to other devices, what I would like to do is have audio playing in other rooms through Airfoil Speakers but to do it cheaply, I know that I could just use other PCs and laptops to do it but it is not something I have right now, I do have two very old laptops (circa windows 3.1 & 95) but they lack in .... functionallity. I was thinking of some stripped down computer which could be hooked up to existing amps. What exactly would I need? What are your thoughts, or alternatives?

My daughter runs a Pre-school and uses a small cd stereo setup. The output is a pair of mono jacks (R/L) for speakers. I am looking to build a distribution box for up to 6 headphones. Thinking of one input (from the speaker jacks using a 2 to 1 plug) The headphones are mono 1/4 so those jacks are readily available. I do not know what the output is of the stereo system is but I doubt it is much over 5 watts (if that). Will I need some sort of amplifier? any thoughts on switches/switching jacks if not all are being used. Thanks for listening. guitar 52

I want to make a sensor that will cause a sound system to emit music. There are some 'ibles for making soft-circuit sensors, but I want to make it so that a speaker produces sounds when an object triggers a sensor. When somebody stands on this sensor, sound will come from a speaker. I don't have any experience with electronics but I can learn. Sorry if my explanation is repetitive.

Dear all, I have a Skoda audio system integrated into my Skoda which has a cd reader plus a cd changer, but only a CD button(no AUX available). I would like to stick inside the audio system a Bluetooth receiver so I can listen to music stored in my phone. The goal is to solder a Bluetooth receiver to the audio system without loosing the cd functionality. On top of that I would like to be able to change from one source to the other without having to use an external button like a 3PDT switch. Thanks in advance, Pedro

I recently bought a used car. It has a radio, but no faceplate. While I could probably find a replacement faceplate or even install a new radio myself. I want to see if I might be able to DIY my own stereo out of the bits of my radio I do have and maybe an MP3 player or something. I figure the amplifier and power systems are all hanging out in the box there. So all thats actually missing is the part that acutally makes the audio to send to the amp. Anyone out there know enough about car stereo to confirm/deny my thoughts on this and maybe provide some advice?

Hi all, I am designing an amplifier system for a bus which is serving all passengers like DAEWOO BUS at a time. this system is working good in normal case. but when driver accelerates, the sound of engine is mixed up with audio signal and causes a noise. I don't know how to remove this noises from my amplifier system. One thing to know that a common amplifier TV, and mp3 player is used to amplify audio signals and next individual passenger will be served his headphone/ handsfree as individual headphone jack adjacent to his seat. Also all headphone with all seats are connected in parallel. I will be thankful if someone help me out in this problem.

Question by Rajkumar2506 1 year ago | last reply 1 year ago
So as the title states I want to design an audio system, I purchased an old shortwave radio someone gutted, but the case is in great shape and looks really cool, would make a killer looking amp. So a little background, I want to make a stereo amp I can hook up several inputs to and my speakers; likely a turntable, iPod, radio, and whatever else I feel like. The radio came with a nice little 5 position rotary switch for that. The main problem I am facing is what ICs I want to use, and what order. I have not dealt much with audio and at first I thought of buying a radio and just putting the guts into this unit, but I thought this would be a good project to dive into audio work. You can't learn if you don't push your bounds a bit, am I right? The first IC question is about chips like the PT2322. There are several I have looked at that use a microcontroller for control, and I am not against using an Arduino Micro in this unit, but I am unsure of how the acknowledgment bit works. The data input seems to just be a shift register, data gets clocked in, then latched. Data is fed in in 8 bit strings, but then it mentions an acknowledgement bit as a 9th bit. Is this bit for the latch, or is there a 9th bit fed in before everything is latched? Should it be hi or lo? As well I was looking at the commands, several commands have 7 of their 8 bits written as a *, does this mean that those bits can be set hi or lo? I am sure these aren't difficult questions and I glossed over something important in one of the many data sheets, and that I do not use these chips with any regularity, if ever, doesn't help either! But I like that these ICs all seem to have a 3 band tone control and volume control built into them. If I were not to use an IC controlled by a microcontroller, I am looking at using a BA3812 for the tone controls, 5 band is a little more then I need, I really only wanted 3, not 2 but not more then 3. Bass, treble and mid range. But I could not find a 3 band IC without microcontroller inputs required for operation, and it was not for the lack of trying. I can handle 5 bands though, however I am wondering, should I go preamp to equalizer to the main amp, or where would I wire in the BA3812? This seems like a stupid question to me, I feel like an audiophile is going to come along and say, "You never put the equalizer after the preamp, it always goes here or there!" or something along those lines. As well, regardless of where its going to get wired in, since I am doing stereo not mono, I assume I will need 2 BA3812's, but the datasheet supplies a circuit for 3 Chips as well. Which would be suggested, 2 or 3? I am wanting to control both left and right tone controls together, so using 5 pots instead of 10, and would also like to be able to have a balance control. I didn't see anything about balance control in the BA3812 datasheet, would there be a good way of accomplishing that with these ICs or the use of a couple op amps maybe? I didn't really look into balance, I should have before asking questions. For the preamp the LM1036 seemed like a good choice. I was reading into preamps, and they seem more important for the turntable then anything else. The way the grooves on a record are cut they boost the high frequencies so they don't fade awayat lower volumes or something like that. Because of that a preamp that boosts bass and cuts treble is useful and improves sound quality when using turntables. Should I use a preamp only for the turntable input or for all inputs? If I adjust the equalizer for records is a preamp necessary or should I use the preamp and set it with trim pots to boost bass and cut treble a little, or should it be fully adjustable as well? As far as what to use for the final amplification I am at a bit of a loss. A home theater system I have is 1500W and is adequately loud, but the system I have for my turntable right now think is only 250W I believe and it seems louder. Never really understood wattages for "loudness" or output on sound system. I saw an IC (can't remember number, its a TDA though) dual 50W amplifier. Not sure if 50W for each channel would be enough. Advice would be helpful. As a side note, if I do go the route of a microcontroller, I found this NJW1186 with stereo input and 5.1 surround output which I thought would be cool. I really appreciate any help. Thank you

I have a Windows 8.1 laptop with Intel i7, 8gb memory, 750gb hdd, and 2gb Nvidia video card that is about 3 years old. I've never had any problems until recently. When I play audio or video, there is a lag in the sound and everything freezes for less than a second. It does this anytime, even when just browsing the internet. I watched the performance monitor in the cpu section and there are usage spikes in 3 of the 8 cpu usage graphs when it lags. I think it comes from system interrupts, but I don't know what it means. I tried turning off audio enhancements, as some suggested for this problem, but it did not change anything. I have not made any recent changes to my laptop, so I don't know why this has just started. Any suggestions?

I have a stereo system that has a left and right speaker that connects to the main part of the stereo (CD player and the radio). I was wondering if I could disconnect the speakers, from the CD player itself, and make a circuit that amplifies a low sound bass, then connected to a small subwoofer. (Instead of a normal amplifier that just makes treble sound louder.) Then reconnect the two speakers so the final result is that there is an amplified subwoofer.

Now despite the fact that Zeus is the father of all gods, we have a budget, and I am thinking of a build that has only moderate-high speed that way there is some money left over for the aesthetics. I already plan on having a black case, possibly painted by an artist if I can find one. with a clear side panel and UV or white LED lights. What I would like to do in an ideal world is have the LEDs flash on startup (like lightning) and then remain lit and have a sound effect played (like the sound of thunder) I am complete stumped on the lights for the moment but for the sound effect I was trying to figure out if there would be a way to remove one of the sound generators from one of those "halmark cards" and just plug it into a fan connector on the mobo for power or something. (Some minor guess work soldier work there). But the problem with that would be how do reprogram the flash memory that plays the specific sound file to a different sound file.

Even so, I'd like to build something similar but for 7.1 with dual inputs and outputs.I'm hoping you can help me make the right choices building this.My original plan was going to be just like the 5.1 version with a few most switches, but instead of the input 3.5mm jack as the source for the switch, I would just connect another switch and then connect it to two 3.5mm jacks.(See attached image)Will this work without taking a hit in audio quality?Is there an easier or more efficient way of doing this?Here's the hardware I selected initially:Switches: http://www.jameco.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId;=10001&catalogId;=10001&productId;=76260&3.5mm jacks: http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/SMJ/3.5MM-STEREO-PHONE-JACK-W/N.O.-SWITCH/1.htmlI don't understand most of the terminology on these parts, but they look like they should work.Please let me know what you think, I'm open to advice.Thanks!
