Hey people... I apologise in advance if what I'm about to ask if a dumb idea but here goes anyway.

I have stashed away in my garage 4 technics speakers gathering dust. Would it be possible to turn each one of them into a powered Bluetooth speaker and if it is possible, is it a project someone with no experience whatsoever could achieve?

Many thanks in advance...

Hi, The inquiry has IMO two parts. Yes it is possible and the best source I know of for components to do this is Parts Express on the web. Is it cost effective, maybe not. You will need an amp (they sell them) that can receive the Bluetooth signal and boost it to useful power output and a power source for each speaker you want to have on a separate channel (mono, stereo, 4Ch ...) Another solution is something like the gear put out by Rocket Fish. They make (made) stand alone amp/receivers and senders that do what you want. Not too pricey. Second part, can you do it, That I can't answer.

Good listening
Bruce

Buy an amp and do it properly. There is some very cheap amps on eBay etc.
