An 8 ohm speaker will present more load to the audio amp.For some reason the speaker no longer works. There is no physical damage that I see. When I use an old scanner speaker, it workss so it's not the wires.
I was wondering if I could use the old scanner speaker. It's a little larger but I can make it fit using a dremel. The 346xt speaker is 24Ω 0.5W and the old Pro64 speaker is 8Ω 0.3W
Are you attaching the 8 ohm speaker to the wires that were soldered to the orignal speakers solder points for your test?For some reason the speaker no longer works. There is no physical damage that I see. When I use an old scanner speaker, it workss so it's not the wires.
Yep, mine has the fine wire on both sides.Wow, it's almost 1am. I need to go to bed...but first I must ask (probably won't hear back tonight though):
- between the terminals and the black blob there is supposed to be thin wires? So from this picture I need to solder the speaker wires onto the left and right side of the blob because the thin wires are no longer there?
edit - looking at it with a magnifying glass, I can see that there is a fine wire on the left side and on the right it is cut - the board is scratched as well.
