Sorry for the late posting Vode,

Due to some confusion on Amazons end, they have sent out a second kit to me at no charge. It will be arriving today, which is Saturday the 26th as I'm typing this. I'll post up later today with my findings on the Velleman MK171 kit!

Fingers Crossed!

I bought this set and it was very easy to build, excellent step by step description and good quality. It does change the voice and you can set different heights of the output voice, but I get almost just sweeping out of the speaker. I hope it was some mistake I did while assembly, if not this set would be quite useless. If someone gets this to work properly I would like to see a demo video or an audio sample.

My replacement kit is working. I can see tat the mic is picking up sound however I'm not getting audio out from the device. Any suggestions folks?

What did you hook the speaker PCB tabs to? Just a basic speaker?

I've hooked the leads onto the tabs but still no audio. I'm using a very low draw speaker that should work with the device

Hmm. Maybe go over your solder points and look for a rogue blog causing a possible short? Just guesses now.

Figured I'd try and put some life into this thread again. After looking at all the solder points the device is good to go. I believe my issue lies in with the speaker itself. I'm using an 8ohm 0.1 watt speaker. Is it possible that the speaker leads do not provide enough power for the speaker? I'm a newbie with this kind of stuff.

I'll add this here to see what people think!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nuviz/the-first-head-up-display-for-motorcycle-helmets

The Nuviz seems to be the talk of the Mercs lately. However, this product *To my limited knowledge of what they've stated in their sales pitch* does not include a method of voice amplification.

Yes, I think it only has helmet-to-helmet comms. A lovely bit of kit, I wish I had more money...!

It apparently should be able to support 4 - 32 ohm speakers, or 1.5 watt at 4 ohms, so your speaker should be fine. Have you tried a different speaker to rule out a faulty piece there?

I haven't had a chance yet to go back to Radioshack and pick up another unit, School has been eating up most of my time during the week :(
