I have a PAM8302A amplifier.

Bluez and pulseaudio works?

  • Give us a clue - what connections does it have? Is it amplified? Is it bluetooth? – CoderMike Dec 7 '18 at 18:00
  • I don't know it is amplified. But it haven't bluetooth. – Minecon724 Dec 7 '18 at 18:10
  • I assume it is not amplified as it has no power, correct? – Eric G Dec 7 '18 at 18:13
  • i think it isn't amplified – Minecon724 Dec 7 '18 at 18:21
  • Ok, wired connections just looks like a simple speaker. You need to connect an amplifier to the 3.5mm audio/video connector. – CoderMike Dec 7 '18 at 18:22

I'm looking at a similar project myself, so I will share what I know.

It looks like it has no power, so you are going to need an amplifier. There are a lot available. One example (what I have waiting to complete the project) is a simple mono audio one like this one by adafruit. It seems to often be recommended that amplifier will need it's own power as well.

Here are some examples from adafruit to hook up an amplifier.
