Backpack audio question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I didn't know if I should post this in the backpack or the electronics sub-forum. But anyway, here is my backpack that I finished building a few weeks ago.

And here is my current setup to play a chatter loop through the radio.

Below is a video of the sound, click on it to watch.

Sandtrooper radio

Down to business, while this little speaker is definitely loud enough inside my house, when I trooped this past weekend I could barely hear it. I even asked the people around me and they could barely hear it.

 

So my question is, what type of speaker is everyone using to get a good loud sound through their radio?

Have you drilled out the holes at the Radio Faceplate?

Good setup but as DerGummo asked, have you drilled any holes or made any openings so the sound hasn't have to go through a piece of plastic first. This muffles it drastically..

Yes, the holes have been drilled.

I just ordered the Pyle-pro speaker that a lot of troopers use and see if that is louder. If nothing else I will just mount the speaker inside the chest armor and use it for talking.

I use the Pyle and it is ridiculously loud. I can hear it in a crowded convention with my helmet and 4 fans going when cranked up lol.

Update: received the Pyle and yeah, it's about twice as loud as my other speaker. I kinda want to buy another one so I can have one inside the backpack and one inside my chest armor for talking.

I can run both mic and mp3 player through the speaker at the same time but it would be nice not to have to talk over the chatter.
