Any ideas on how to wire this together?

It's a very basic idea. I will include a diagram at the bottom for clarity.

So right now, my speakers and subwoofer are independent in volume control, but both are connected to the back of my computer using a splitter to share the sound due to my speakers using an external amplifier while the subwoofer is powered and has its own amplifier.

It is possible for me to plug my phone into the back of the amplifier through an auxiliary cable in order to play music through the speakers, but obviously it doesn't play through the subwoofer.

Any way for me to get it so my PC and phone somehow can share the subwoofer and amped speakers? I can't think of anything right now other than somehow linking my subwoofer into my amp which isn't possible.

Here is the wiring diagram of my setup drawn in paint lol

The speakers are Micca MB42X, the amplifier is Lepai 2020, the powered subwoofer is for one of those 5.1 logitech systems, but I got rid of the 5 speakers for my Micca MB42X and just couldn't afford a new subwoofer.

Quick question: salvaging parts from a motherboard

I have a motherboard with heaps of caps, it's fairly new but it's not working anymore and has been sitting on my desk for about a year, anyway, is it a good idea to desolder the caps and reuse them or something like that? (I know, they'll be short :|)

There's also a ton of regulators and stuff like that on there :)

It's so tempting to not salvage it and keep it/put it in something so I can look at it, it's a very lovely board (although I've got an identical I'm using now in my PC)

Weller WES51 Battery Mod?

I have a Weller WES51 that I love and use just about every day, it is without a doubt the best piece of equipment I own. My experience with electronics has shown me that most devices take household 110VAC and eventually end up using some form of DC. Does anyone have experience with the innards of a soldering iron like this? I'd really like to be able to run it off battery power with a nice simple mod, keep it as stock as possible, but I have no idea what the electronics inside are like, other than a huge transformer as seen in searching Google images.

Adding delay to a useless-box circuit

I've got myself one of those things everyone needs called usually with silly names like "useless box" when they're quite the opposite. You know, the thing where you flick a switch and a "finger" comes out of the box and turns it off again.

Anyway, the one that I got from eBay does work quite well, but has practically no delay after flicking the switch. Also the motor is too fast to my taste, so the whole cycle last only about a second or so from flicking the switch to ON position.

I'm looking for a simple way to:

a) add delay to the process by adding basically a timber after pressing the switch after which the turning off process would start

b) as a bonus perhaps slow down the motor a notch.

c) even bigger bonus to add a bit of randomness to the process by varying the timer and/or motor speed on each time

The one that I have is pretty much this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/LEAVE-ME-ALONE-Useless-Box-Kit-Ultimate-Machine-Science-Kit-DIY-Version-/151459693997?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2343b385ad

So it's purely mechanic in a way that there's no logic chips in the circuit.

And it's running on 2 x AA batteries in series so optimal circuit would work with that 3V but it's not a problem to add another battery or change the voltage if the delaying needs that.

I do also have a couple of Arduinos lying around so there's always a possibility to just do the entire logic with that, but if there's a simpler solution I'm interested in that at this point since I'm considering giving some of these modified boxes as a gift and adding an Arduino to each is not optimal :)

Triggering a 555 with another 555.

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to build a reaction timer circuit, when you press the "Start" button, a light will come on, once the light turns off, the timer will start then you'll press the "Stop" button to stop the timer.

I was able to make the timer circuit, and I made a monostable 555 to trigger the LED.

The problem I'm having is, I can't figure out how to trigger my counter circuit to start counting once the LED goes off.

Also, does anyone know how to stop a 7490 counter? It's being fed a clock from a 555.

Thank you anyone for any help!!

Need help catching the Office Food Thief.

So someone in my office has been eating a lot of peoples lunches/breakfast food in the fridge/freezer. I wanted to setup a simple device that would sit in the box, I have for my frozen breakfast sandwich and make an obnoxious noise, when the box was opened. The box is a box of aunt jemima breakfast sandwich. It holds 6 not 2 though. My plan is to go into work very early and wait for this device to go off and run and find out who it is. Anybody have an idea on a device I can use or make to do this.

Does anyone have any experience with MAX21100 IMU chips?

I've recently started a project with Maxim's MAX21100 IMU. Usually, the chip manufacturers write basic high-level drivers to speed up development, but I can't find anything. Does anyone know where I can find c drivers or do I have to write everything myself?

Fan Tach signal conditioning

I have a 50% duty cycle 100khz signal that is ether 6.2 volts (high) or 1 volt (low). I need to chop the signal down to 1.8 volts (high) and 0 volts (low) after I run it through an optoisolator. I have been using a comparator with a 1.25 precision source but I cannot seem to get a decent signal to drive an optocoupler and get my 1.8 / 0 pulse out the end? Any suggestions. I was using LTspice for the most part

Custom guitar pedals

Hey ya'll! I'm currently in the process of prototyping a fuzz pedal for my friend's bass guitar. I've looked around for schematics, and I settled on this one: http://www.musicfromouterspace.com/index.php?MAINTAB=SYNTHDIY&PROJARG=VOCODER2013/VOCODER2013.php&CATPARTNO=VOCODER2013&PN=1&SONGID=NONE

It works for the most part but it's got an unbearable hum when the string isn't being plucked. Do any of you know where I can find more effects pedal schematic. I want to try a bunch and see which one works best.

help reading data sheet for a digital pot

Hey guys,

I want to control an aftermarket seat heater; in my classic car, with a micro-controller but i'm not sure the best way to do it.

the seat heater have a 5 position potentiometer that takes 12v signal (5 amps) to adjust the temp

originally i was going to use a high current motor driver and use the pwm to control the seat temp. I have the hardware to do this if it's a viable solution, but i was thinking about using a digital pot instead (to make it more compact)

i came across the analog devices' AD5290.pdf But i'm having a hard time figuring out if it can handle the current load of the seat heater.

Would someone be willing to quickly look it over and help a novice out?

thank you

WiFi-connected LED display project

Pictures here http://imgur.com/a/8F6hg

I've been working on a LED display which can get pictures sent to it via WiFi. I found a 64x32 LED panel from Seeedstudio, and I'm driving it with a TI Connected Launchpad (120 MHz and 256KB of RAM - nice specs for what I'm doing). It gets WiFI from an ESP8266, so that a program on my PC can send it updates. Right now what I usually display is some song information & album art queried from iTunes. But it can also take resized or cropped images or rendered graphics.

The program is really simple, but the speed is decently impressive. It updates the whole display 60 times a second, and includes 12 bits of detail for each color channel. That gives me enough brightness levels to use a gamma curve and not lose too much low-level detail.

A couple further tweaks that I might make sometime: - Some faster communication with the ESP8266. I haven't played with the SDK or flashed any firmware since I got this chip, but it takes ~0.6 seconds to transfer a 6KB image since it's only using a 115200 baud serial link. - Add two-way communication to the iTunes app so it can be used as an iTunes remote to skip/pause tracks. - Scrolling text, since the full title almost never fits on the screen.

Right now I'm calling this screen "Thanks, iTunes" because it used to be a 32x16 screen which couldn't fit much information at all. 8 characters of text and a handful of pixels for art ... thanks a lot. I couldn't think of any IoT projects to do with an ESP8266... I have no particular need to monitor some room's temperature all the time, or turn lights on when I arrive, or whatever else people do. So I thought that I'd pursue something different that was similarly useless.

tl;dr: Shiny pretty colors.

DORKBOT-SYD: MARCH 2014: FERROFLUIDS, HUMAN BEHAVIOUR, BIO-SYNTHS
WHAT: People doing strange things with electricity
WHERE: College of Fine Arts, UNSW, Cnr of Oxford St and Greens Rd Paddington, Main Lecture Theatre ? EG02 ( campus map here! )
WHEN: Thursday 27th March, 6-8
HOW MUCH: ZILCH!

We?re back! With a new home and a new Overlord. Scott Brown has joined the fold! So we?re looking forward to hearing about his endeavors and we?re also very happy to have the ?new kid in town?, Jeffrey Koh! Bring along some snacks if you like and we can journey to the pub after to continue scheming!!!

Jeffrey Koh
I?m a bit of a polymath when it comes to my research and practice interests, which ranges from UX design, design thinking, installation and new media art, hacker/maker culture, human-computer interaction, ubiquitous and pervasive computing, as well as robotics. My most recent project deals with morphable and shape changing interfaces based on the electro-magnitization of ferrofluids. In the past I did some work with PRADA doing catwalk designs, as well as helped design a robot with the capacity to love and be loved. Recently I co-founded a startup in Singapore and I am now an associate lecturer at COFA, UNSW. Connecting the dots between disciplines has been a life-long journey, and I am a firm believer that these grey areas between traditional practices is where all the cool stuff happens.
http://villainous.biz/

Scott BrownScott Brown was born with one eyebrow. Despite this terrible affliction, he has overcome the odds to not only interact with other human beings, but excel at investigating this very field. Taking the well-trod path of DJ-turned-promoter, Scott found himself involved in many creative pursuits within the DIY culture of dance music during the dreadfully titled ?noughties?. Before long, this resulted in a keen interest in design and performance technology. Combining his background of music production, theatre and visual design, Scott has now focused his efforts upon experiential media. Interested in the area where performance, technology and design meet, Scott?s projects are often a reflection upon our own behaviour as humans, as much as they are an investigation of the technology we bring into our everyday lives.

Making a Single-Tab Peripheral Board
The first step to making a peripheral board is to take some standard 2.54mm prototyping board, and cut out the board with a cutting tool.

We?re making a Single-Tab board in this case.




Using a Template to cut the board

Once the board is cut, we add 2.54mm connectors to the bottom of the pcb and then solder them on. They need to be soldered to the bottom, not the top as the circuitry mostly sits hidden on the bottom side of the board.




Adding the connectors

After the connectors are added, two for power, two for input/output, all you need to do next is to add the rest of your circuit. That?s done by dropping the components onto the board and soldering them on the bottom as you would normally do.




Add your circuitry

This particular circuit ended up being an InfraRed receiver made with a cheap IR-Receiver sensor that I picked up when an electronics store was having a sale.

Using this process, it?s possible to make up circuits for pretty much any part you can find. If the part is too big, then you can use a double-tab board which is twice the size and gives more space.

__WE DON’T CARE ABOUT MUSIC ANYWAY__
## __WE DON’T CARE ABOUT MUSIC ANYWAY__

L'ALBUM EN ECOUTE : http://bruitblanc.bandcamp.com/album/we-dont-care-about-music-anyway

J'ai vu ce documentaire à l'étrange festival il y a quelques années en présence des réalisateurs. Toujours en attente d'une sortie DVD (je veux des sous-titres FR moi !) - il est dispo en ligne sur des sites US (VPN recommandé)

LES MUSICIENS : http://www.bruitblanc.fr/?page_id=822
LE FILM : http://www.studio-shaiprod.com/blog/?page_id=4

_Bruit Blanc et Studio Shaiprod s’associent pour sortir en Europe la bande originale du film qui avait déjà été éditée au Japon en janvier 2011 à l’occasion de la sortie en salle du film. Le projet “We don’t Care About Music Anyway…” est celui d’un film documentaire sur la scène de musique improvisée extrême de Tokyo. Entre novembre 2007 et février 2008, nous avons filmé la majorité des performances des musiciens dans les clubs de la capitale japonaise._

_Dans le cadre du tournage, nous avons également invité les musiciens à improviser dans des lieux extraordinaires. Sakamoto Hiromichi a fait jaillir les souvenirs enfouis d’une école abandonnée de chichibu, Otomo Yoshihide a fait trembler les métaux de l’usine de recyclage Re-tem, Numb et Saidrum ont jonglé avec le beat et ses échos dans les vastes galeries souterraines de chika shinden. Nous avons aussi tendu l’oreille pour écouter la musique de la ville, son trafic incessant, ses voix amplifiées disséminés dans l’espace, ses musiques d’ambiance… Voici l’essentiel des sources qui composent la bande son du film. L’une des idées fondatrices du projet de film était que le son puisse s’écouter indépendamment des images, cette bande originale en est l’aboutissement.__
