Q:
How do you attach this to the solar panel charger you sell?
Asked by: Andy Hollands
A:
Hi Andy, Basically you would set it up much like the circuit on the link below but replace the LED square with the mono amp and no other changes should be needed to the set up. https://www.kitronik.co.uk/pdf/2168-solar-power-kit-datsheet.pdf Best Regards Cullen

Q:
Is there a cable with the speaker? If not, what will I need to complete the kit? Thanks
Asked by: Linda Bloor
A:
Hi Linda, The kit is supplied with all the parts required to build the kit, although it doesn't come with a separate cable to attach the speaker it is supplied with a 1M Stereo Jack lead, this can be cut to provide wire to connect the speakers and we suggest cutting this in half so you have 0.5M of cable for the speaker and for the Jack Lead.

Q:
hi when the batteries are put in it seems to produce a lot of heat . can you tell me what's wrong alan
Asked by: alan wade
A:
Hi Alan, That would normally indicate a short circuit, which could have damaged a component on the board. The best option is to get for any short circuits on the board. Alternatively it could be the power source, the kit is limited to a maximum of 6 Volts. If you are still having issues email a picture of the top and bottom of the board through to support@kitronik.co.uk

Q:
Can this board be powered by the USB power lead (4101) that you sell?
Asked by: Fergal Murphy
A:
Hi Fergal, Yes it could be powered by a 5V USB cable. However you would need to ensure that you do not exceed 5 Volts, and you would also not be able to power this from a USB port as it kit can draw around 500mA. As such if you wanted to power it in this method you would need to sue a wall power supply suitable for a USB cable to supply 5 Volts and a minimum of 1A.

Q:
Is the SMD IC Amp pre-soldered to the back side of the PCB? Can you show this in your images? I can not see the amp anywhere in the images. Do you have a circuit diagram? Thanks.
Asked by: Troy Smith
A:
Hi Troy, Yes the amplifier IC is pre-mounted to the back of the board. We are currently looking at getting a photo of the rear side of the board uploaded to show the IC. A circuit diagram can be found on page 7 of the following document, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/pdf/2165-v3-mono-amplifier-kit-essential-information.pdf

Q:
Is there a way to mount the speaker? There doesn't seem to be any screw holes etc.
Asked by: Ali
A:
Hi Ali, Although the speakers do not have fixing hole we have an example of how to mount the speakers shown in the following document on page 11,https://www.kitronik.co.uk/pdf/2165-v3-mono-amplifier-kit-teaching-notes.pdf. A speaker grill could also be used to cover the front of the speaker and stop this following out of the enclosure if a hole is drilled to fit the speaker through.

Q:
Can this amplifier be used with the BBC Microbit? I've connected a speaker directly but there is not enough drive directly from the MicroBit.
Thanks
-Larry
Asked by: Larry
A:
Hi Larry, We have just tested this with the micro:bit connected to our new ZIP Halo board and connect the amplifier with clip leads to the ZIP Halo and it works great. We also drove it direct from the micro:bit and that worked to, all we would say is that you couldn't power the micro:bit from the USB connector. You would also need to power the amp, you could use the same 3V supply for both the micro:bit and the amplifier, connect the 3V supply to the amplifier and then use the following wire to take power from there to the micro:bit, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/4160-jst-jumper-wire-and-socket.html, ensuring it is correctly connected.
