Community Question

Hi everyone.

I have a small issue using the EZ-B soundboard and just wondered if anyone experienced this and possibly has a fix. When I play sound files there is a rather annoying hiss in the background.

When I play the sound files directly through a media player on my PC, perfect.

When I use SayEZB() or Pandorabot control, perfect.

But any sound file played through the EZ-B soundboard the background hiss returns. Not a major problem but I would like to eliminate this if I could. Is it possible?

Cheers.

It is powered by a small rechargable battery housed inside the speaker itself. Below is a picture of the speaker I'm using.

Aw yes, the issue very well may be that the speaker and ez-b don't share the same ground reference since they have separate power supplies. If you can find a way (maybe through the charging port) to connect the grounds together the noise is likely to go away.

@Jereime.

Thanks for that. Coming to think of it that does make sense. I will give the grounding a try.

Thanks again. :)

My plan with the breakout mod is to get an amplified speaker like you have but power it from the bots main battery. Interested to see if you fix it!

No worries Technopro. I'll post an update when I try it.
