Connecting system speaker

  Installer. 18:20 23 Mar 03

My Soyo motherboard has no built in speaker, but there is a speaker connection down by the power led connections. My question is can I connect an ordinary small 4 ohm speaker to these pins?

The system speaker is part of the case, not the motherboard.

Normally there is a two wire connection from the case to the board at about the area you describe.

I would suggest you didn't use a speaker not designed for the job.

My previous motherboards have had small piezo transducers on board, which have been usefull when having boot-up problems. all I really need to know is what impedance device is needed.

Have you looked on the case?

Piezo tranducers (including the ones installed on computer cases) are usually high impedence thus a 4 ohm speaker would not be suitable.

As -pops- says there should be a led connected to a hidden speaker behind the plastic front of the computer. But it’s only for computer beep codes not for listening to CD’s
