Speakers
« on: March 13, 2008, 10:17:22 AM »

ok, so I have a set of battery powered speakers (6 AAA)  I like the way they sound, but the batteries die after a day or two.  Would it be possible to wire these up to draw power from a USB port, or would I be better off just using a spare wall wart ?

6 * 1.5 != 5

Wall wart is the way to go or something like this.

Easy, go find a 9v generic wall wart at Radiosuck or something, wire it up, and you're good to go.

Something like this: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2194430&cp=&sr=1&origkw=9v&kw=9v&parentPage=search
Though you should be able to find one cheaper easily.

Maybe I should have used <> for those who like BASIC. :)

CptCafne knows != coding  ;)

Like everyone else said usb +v rail is only 5v so you need to get a 9v AC adapter.  Should be easy to find. 

I thought the thread topic said SNEAKERS.  I got excited and was gonna post lots of Dunks  :lol:
