Adafruit I2S 3W Stereo Speaker Bonnet for Raspberry Pi - Mini Kit
Product Images and Video
Hey Mr. DJ! Turn up that Raspberry Pi mix to the max with this cute 3W Stereo Amplifier Bonnet for Raspberry Pi. (It's not big enough to be an official HAT, so we called it a bonnet, you see?) It's the exact same size as a Raspberry Pi Zero but works with any and all Raspberry Pi computers with a 2x20 connector - A+, B+, Zero, Pi 2, Pi 3, Pi 4, etc. We've tested it out with Raspbian (the official operating system) and Retropie.
This Bonnet uses I2S a digital sound standard, so you get really crisp audio. The digital data goes right into the amplifier so there's no static like you hear from the headphone jack. And it's super easy to get started. Just plug in any 4Ω to 8Ω speakers, up to 3 Watts, run our installer script on any Raspberry Pi, reboot and you're ready to jam!
Each order comes as a fully tested and assembled PCB and 2x extra terminal blocks. No soldering required if you're using our 3 Watt speaker set, just plug and play. You can either plug one of our enclosed speaker sets right into the JST jack in the middle or you can solder the terminal blocks in and then connect any speaker you like, like our 4Ω 3W or 8Ω 1W. Hey you can even use a surface transducer!
Don't forget to make sure you have a good strong 5V power supply - especially if you're using the 3W 4 ohm speakers! Our 2.4A power plug is recommended.
Pi and speakers not included!
The terminal blocks included with your product may be blue or black.
