Thin 0.25W Speaker:

3341-thin-speaker-ideal-for-microbit-mono-amp-870

This is the perfect speaker for projects that produce sound but where space is tight or where the speaker needs to be discreet. These speakers work well with the BBC microbit; you can code the microbit to play music or emit a beep as an alarm and this little speaker will do an admirable job. We have also tested this speaker with our mono amp kit and it works like a charm.

This 0.25W, 8ohm speaker is only 40mm in diameter and just over 4mm thick making it very similar in size to those found in talking greeting cards, you could even design a microbit talking greeting card that has the built in microbit as a present as well as part of the card.

Features:

  • 8ohm speaker that is ideal for use with the BBC microbit.
  • 4mm thick, making it ideal for use as a discreet speaker.
