Speaker for the Raspberry Pi3
Hi , i want to order a speaker for the raspberry Pi3 and i found this Bluetooth one : https://www.gearbest.com/speakers/pp_345599.html , is it gonna be gd to use it for the alexa roject ?
thanks in advance.
Any bluetooth speaker will work that can pair with the Pi3
And what does the community recommend as BT-Speaker? Is there also a cheap cable option?
If you only want to get audio output you can try my setup:
I used a simple PAM8403 circuit, an old 3.5mm cable and a 5V power adaptor together with 2 cheap ceiling-mount Speakers off of Amazon (9€/each).
The PAM is connected directly to the Pi’s Audio jack.
If you use a cheap USB Sound Card and a mic you will also get voice input to the Pi.
To get a hassle-free Setup I would suggest not to go the BT route. I assume you will have to activate the Speaker manually before either Audio out or in will work…
Well, i just ordered these two:
I removed the speaker from it’s body and screw big holes in my mirror. The speaker also got a physical volume control. Not really good to hear music, but for alexa and the podcast module it will be absolutely enough.
The Audio adapter works out of the box for microphone. To enable speaker port u need to select it in raspberry as standard port.
