not sure what area this should be. Making a pinata I want to put a speaker in the head and be able to use a mic & have the sound coming from the head. Have all sorts of mini speakers and other junk maybe hand held radio push to speak what do u suggest & how to wire?
Welcome back, pigmom...
Are you looking for a wireless or wired solution?
It looks like you're not there, I'm going to drop to Q/A mode (via email). I'll make some suggestions, you can provide feedback, and we can go from there...

I'm an electrical engineer by profession, but it sounds like you need something easy to use for this project. I'm going to assume that you want a wireless solution, at least between the mic and the pinata. You'd also like to reuse mini-speakers you already have if possible.My take on it is that I'd probably use a wireless FM transmitter. These are inexpensive and easily available. I'll provide a few recommendations below:1) Long range FM transmitter, takes 9v battery, has built in microphone.2) Shorter range FM transmitter, AA battery, with microphoneOn the pinata side, I'd simply use a battery powered FM radio (or old walkman) and connect it to your mini-speakers via the headphone jack. If you need help wiring that up, let me know.If this solution wasn't what you had in mind, let me know that also and I can fine tune the suggestions...And thanks for visiting us again!
sorry got busy. wired is fine I can run small amp or speaker wire along the rope holding him up then I can disengage all this before we beat him
I've looked at wired solutions, but most of them are going to be over $50 for an amplifier and they're going to require external power, in addition to the microphone wire. I think you're better off (and less expensive) using a simple portable radio as the amp and buying the <$20 wireless transmitter for voice...
ok with the receiver 2 way transmitter. I take a small fm radio or something put this in the head then use a battery and the part u linked me 2 this has built in mic not sure does the green wire go to fm or what if u can sort of give me the big picture I think I can do this. Thanks
That's a good question, thanks for following up and asking. The green wire is actually the FM transmitting antenna. It doesn't go anywhere.Big picture:1) Buy one of the transmitters I linked to. Install battery.2) Find a small FM receiver, walkman, something that receives FM signals. 3) Listen on the FM radio, roll the tuner (change frequency) until you pick up the signal from your FM transmitter. The transmitter is adjustable, but normally broadcasts in 88-90 frequency.4) Once you're picking up the station from the transmitter, put the radio in the bear and connect a speaker (if you need it) to the radio.
