Mini Amp out of PSOne speakers.

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this but here goes... I have two PSOne Screen speakers which i would like to just use as a simple AUX-in amplifier. I hooked it all up and tried it out with my iPod but the output was just too small for the speakers. (The 8 ohm impendence can't compete wit...

Thank you for the info. Now just one thing to clear it up. When you say a large enough capasitor, do you mean one which is rated 12v's but has a huge uF? or what? does it have to be 12v's? if not, whats better? a higher or lower voltage? Thanks again for the info :)

I recognized your concern but due to the fact that the power wires I use are very small, if a short ever occurs, the wires burn up almost instantly. (sort of kinda acts like a fuse, except harder to replace :) ) I know this because it has happened before. When using the safety precautions I use, I f...

Powering Wii in car problems :(

OK! so, I made a cigarette lighter adapter that powers my Wii off my cars 12v battery power. One problem I have but isn't really a big deal is that w/e I start my car, the Wii shuts off to the red led mode. Now I think this is probably a result of my cars alternator cranking up the voltage to almost...

If I understand what you are doing correctly, you may have fried it. :? Basically anytime I have to try every different wire combination and it still does not work, that means that the first wiring config I tried fried the electronic. :cry:

The distortion is there even when hooked up to a TV. And it might be worth mentioning that the distortion is predictable. Meaning that when I switch on the N64, the static goes through a pre-determined series of different beeps and humming before settling down to a steady noise. Might this mean that...

Audio static

This happened on my old portable but am trying to fix it for my new one. When playing a game I get static from both speakers. It is faint but noticeable. Its not the screen, and I have the N64 running off of its own power supply, not the original though. The screen quality is perfect due to the cap ...

Well *sigh*, I'm not sure I even have enough room for ONE analog stick, let alone two. The whole point was to have the N64 and NES run off off of one stick, but if I alter the resistance of the pots, the N64 will be all screwy.
