how would I connect a ipod dock to a mono speaker, power switch,a power source, and volume control? Answered


Using the cables that are made for those purposes?

haha good point do you know where i could find the parts for such a project

I got mine at Walmart and Radio Shack, but that's just because I don't have an Apple Store located nearby. IIRC, the dock came with a remote, and I had to get the USB power adapter and A/V cables separately. Given the funky way that Apple wires up its devices, it just seemed to make more sense to get the commercial products from Apple instead of cobbling together a DIY that may or may not work. You might also need to add a stereo-to-mono adapter if you're committed to the mono speaker thing.
