Years ago i picked up a small electronic keyboard from a second-hand place. Never learned to play it, and bitten by the CBG bug, thought the speaker might be useful for a mini amp.
I opened up the keyboard body - it's got 6v battery input, or 12v dc input from the mains. the speaker is a 4ohm 0.8watt 4inch speaker, and the guts are mostly printed circuitry and big chips.
I've soldered some electronic kits up previously but that's the limit of my expertise. Have I got any chance of making something useful with what I have, or is it a non-starter?
0.8 watts is a bit low for an amp. Better to find one with more wattage. 4 or 8 ohms will depend on the amp you will be using. Mostly one or the other will be ok, but one will sound better if it's exactly what the amp needs.
Thanks for the tip. I'll keep looking!
