Splitting audio to speakers & FM transmitter
« on: December 26, 2018, 04:07:37 PM »
I was wondering what people are doing to split audio to speakers and FM transmitter.  I currently have a RPi3 sending audio to an Adafruit USB sound card and then splitting it to a speaker amplifier and FM transmitter with simple cable splitter.  The speaker amp is a Sure Electronics 2x15W going to rock speakers.  The FM transmitter is an EDM LCD transmitter.

Is there a better way to be splitting the audio to the amp and FM transmitter?

I do pretty much the same as you and it works well for me.  That being said there are tons of recommendations not to split the signal out of the usb sound device.  Might be better to use a mixer with multiple outlets?

You can also use a small FM tuner to power your speakers and just pick up the radio signal.  I quit using speakers and just use an old boombox sitting on my front porch.  That way I got rid of an amplifier and a bunch of wires.  Sure simplified my setup.
