Picade speaker size


Can anyone confirm the speaker size on the picade? Are they 3 inch?



This is the standard Picade speaker! https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/3-speaker-4-3w


Thanks Jon. Just got home and checked - yep its the same one you sell haha. Thanks


wondered if this one would work in the picade? probably too powerful?



It looks fine - be aware that the Picade amp won’t be able to make the most of it though! However you could easily put a different amp in the cabinet - such as: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/adafruit-stereo-20w-class-d-audio-amplifier-max9744 but you’d need to provide another power supply!


Or for super audio performance you’re really looking at a proper DAC such as: https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pi-digiamp


Thanks jon. Where can i source that speaker wire supplied with picade?


It’s just good quality wire. We buy it in 100m reels from Farnell I think! Since you only need a short amount we can pop some in the post if you want?


That would be awesome Jon. Thanks :)


How would you control the picade volume using the buttons if you were using an alternate amp to the picade pcb (i.e adafruit 20w or pi-ampdigi+) as the volume buttons are terminated into the picade pcb but the speaker would be terminated on the separate amp.


The Picade amp has built in volume up/down support. So you’d need another amp that has the same!


Thanks jon

Received the speaker wire. Very much appreciated sir :)
