Questions about replacing the speaker

Holy Hathaway

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am wondering if I can replace the speaker with 3.5 mm audio jack and input the audio to my laptops microphone in so I can record the sound using a software such as audacity. I don't know the input specifications and afraid that inputting amplified voltages over 5 volt would damage the microphone input port of my laptop. Thanks in advance for your reply.

Using a 3.5 mm audio jack to input audio from a speaker to your laptop's microphone input port might not work as intended.
The microphone input port is designed to receive low-level signals from microphones, which are usually much weaker than the output from a speaker.
Connecting amplified audio signals from a speaker could potentially damage the microphone input port of your laptop.
It's safer to use a line-in or auxiliary input designed for higher-level audio signals. You could use an external audio interface or a USB sound card to connect the speaker's output to your laptop for recording purposes.
Always check the specifications of your laptop and any additional equipment you plan to use to ensure compatibility and avoid potential damage.
