Back to wires and code againPosted: April 23, 2011
After the quick fix of using the speaker jack and the switch it was time to get stuck back into picaxe (purely for the fun of becoming a sound technician for the day and annoying everyone with beeping sounds… and for the much needed marks!!)
Mastering our soldering skills, we assembled all the pieces to create the amplifier.
After much trial and error of incorrect wiring, i think it is now safe to say i am a soldering and wire stripping expert! All those mistakes also helped me to understand better the ins and outs of exactly how the circuit works. After successfully connecting the amp, it was clear a potentiometer switch would be needed to reduce the volume. Although our design will not make use of the volume control, without it no one will want to be within a mile’s radius of our design, especially with our talent for creating picaxe sounds.
