  • How are these wired please?

  • Is it possible to substitute a Slide Pot - Small (10k Linear Taper): https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11620 for this thumbwheel potentiometer?

  • Would I be able to use this with the Mono Audio Amp Breakout - TPA2005D1, instead of the Trimpot 10K with Knob that is suggested?

  • Can this be driven by an Arduino and can I use your Mono Audio Amp Breakout - TPA2005D1 with it?

  • Success! Thank you so much for your patience. Today I bought a mono jack that is transparent so I could see exactly what was going on inside. With your excellent instructions, I was finally able to make it work. And the board is still amplifying perfectly :)

  • I have it hooked up, but I am just getting sound on the headphones only. Sorry, I’ll just ask one more time. Could you go over the connections one more time, including the grounds?

  • It’s exactly like the sparfun jack you referenced, it just has 3 pins instead of 5. So I assume the ground is the same and the other two pins are switched.

  • I have a mono version of that jack. There are just 3 pins. Would you mind giving me the same instructions for the 3 pins? Sorry, I am just starting out using your products. I have not used the breakout board before.

  • I would like to include a headphone jack in my project but I am not sure how to combine the jack and this board. Obliviously, I don’t want to amplify the headphones, just the speaker.

  • I there a simple, clear schematic available of how to use this to interrupt a speaker output so that the sound comes through headphones? Mono sound.

No public wish lists :(
