  • Making a Bluetooth speaker
  • Recently saw a vintage guitar amp someone had converted into a Bluetooth speaker. Quite fancy doing the same with an old speaker or a vintage radio. Anyone done similar?

    My mate’s kid made one at school out of lego. Pretty cool.

    I’d bet my life savings there are instructional vids on YT 🙂

    There are bluetooth modules available for peanuts on eBay. I bought one for my car, it was £9, but it was aimed at converting headphones to bluetooth so it had a 3.5mm jack and buttons on the front for skip track, volume etc.

    Can you get hardware that will do LDAC with the right software/firmware? I can’t find any recievers!s that do!

    Found a few videos but wondering if anyone here had tried it.
    Be handy to have mains power rather than having to keep charging batteries

    Most of the Bluetooth kits will work off 24v, so a laptop PSU works perfectly.

    I have a couple of the kits to play with, when I get my garage sorted I’ll put them to use.

    I think it was the TPA3116 Bluetooth board I have, about £5 from China. I’ll probably reuse some old car speakers.
