I have built a raspberry Pi Jukebox, specially modified for a handicapped user (voice feedback on all songs, large buttons) but I have one.... last.... problem.

The speakers I used ran off the analog port, which is fun. Alas, they had to be plugged into the wall - and I decided to make this portable for the guy. I wish to power the device as a whole using one of these babies. However, the speakers a 12 volts.

I actually own some of these guys:

  • What about a Bluetooth speaker(s)? May 13, 2014 at 6:15
  • Hmmm... because he is blind, I'd kinda like to embed the speakers, so the ranged aspect seems unnecessary, but I suppose it would actually work... May 13, 2014 at 7:02
