HE'S BAAACK. Bought the scanner and it sounds great in the house with a 3" external speaker. Now it's how to get to the garage.
Here's what it says for the jacks on the scanner:
Audio Output Power 3W nominal into 8Ω speaker
30mW nominal into 32Ω stereo headphone
Phone Jack: 3.5mm (1/8 in.) Stereo Type
Ext.SP Jack: 3.5mm (1/8 in.) Monaural Type
REC.Out Jack: 3.5mm (1/8 in.) Stereo Type
Here is an amp that popped up on Amazon:
Amazon.com: LP-2020A+ Lepai Tripath Class-T Hi-Fi Audio Mini Amplifier with Power Supply: Electronics
So, if I put the amp next to the scanner I can connect them from the REC Out on the scanner to the MP3 Input on the amp. I think.
I'm thinking of going to the bathroom with say the left channel then continue on to the garage with the right channel.
With this set up can I use regular 16 gage speaker wire?
I can use a non-powered speaker in the bath but would really like powered in the garage but not necessary.
Money isn't as much a deal as in 2011, social security starts in the fall so I best get spending so it doesn't pile up on me. :-)
Thanks very much.
