The circuit I used involved a potentiometer, a 100uF capacitor, the microphone, and a simple dc speaker.
Wow! And what did that circuit actually DO
for you? Can you post a schematic diagram of the circuit?
The problem is, nothing I've tried has worked. I've found dozens of wonky tutorials online that never work.
Not too surprising, given the troll-like nature of your responses to our questions here. Plus, you have not yet uploaded any schematics or photographs... or anything that would help any of us answer the bold, highlighted, question of your initial post on this thread:
How do I wire up an electret microphone into a speaker?
I am going to have
to assume you have zero
technical skills and no
electronics instrumentation of any kind. You may or may not have a soldering iron and flux-cored solder of appropriate size to "wire up" anything. So, please correct these deficiencies before proceeding.
You will need an audio amplifier with a high-impedance input and sufficient output capability to amplify the electret microphone audio
output to a useful level. An oscilloscope will prove invaluable in determining that this is actually happening. Some electret microphones have a "built in" FET (Field-Effect Transistor) buffer that requires a small external DC voltage to operate. If possible, select one of these from your dusty bins as they are considerably easier to work with than a bare two-terminal electret microphone.
does not exist AFAIK. Speakers are alternating current (AC) devices that accept audio frequency signals and mechanically produce audible alternating rarification and compression waves in air, otherwise known as sound waves. The frequency response of speakers extends from kilohertz signals down to a few hertz, although the human ear does not hear much below 20 Hz or much above 20 kHz. The lower frequencies can, however, be felt in the human chest cavity and perhaps resonate there if sufficient power is available to produce them in air. Speakers used for audible purposes are NEVER operated with DC. Linear actuators, not speakers, are capable of operating with DC but their implementation and use is not simple and generally never used in conjunction with electret microphones. YM(or kilometers)MV.
If you want to separate the speaker from the audio amplifier and insert a wireless (radio) connection, there is no simple solution.
You need a radio transmitter that accepts the output of the audio amplifier and a radio receiver that accepts the radio transmission and converts it to an audio signal of sufficient power to operate a speaker. Refer to texts on radio broadcasting to see how this works.
The key is modulation, of which there are dozens if not hundreds of varieties, including digital variations suitable for use with Arduino microcontrollers. So-called "Arduino transmitters and receivers" accept digital (on/off) input signals and produce digital (on/off) output signals. It is your
responsibility to convert the continuously variable analog audio signal from your electret microphone into a digital signal for application as input to the transmitter. It is your
responsibility to convert the digital output of the receiver into an audio signal for application to a speaker.
If you don't feel up for all that, you can use an unlicensed "wireless microphone" radio transmitter with an appropriate receiver. These are readily available on Ebay in either AM or FM varieties. There is also information available on the Internet for DIY construction
. Google "diy wireless audio transmitter and receiver
" for ideas and possible solutions.
