Picade speaker size


#1

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

Thanks

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


#4

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?


#8

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?


#9

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!
