Hi everyone,

 

I just bought a Radiola 584 Boombox, aka Philips 22AR584.

 

http://www.angelicaa...Philips-584.jpg

 

It equiped with a kind of VU Meter but it is not sound responsive because that's only for the Tunning Level and the Battery Checker.

 

This boombox looks easy to mod and i have a dedicated connector for this meter.

 

What can i do to convert this meter to a vu meter ? Plug it on a speaker output ?

 

Thanks in advance !

 

Dan

I would measure the impedance of the meter , if its not too big a load you could wire it right to the speakers, you might have to add a resistor because if there's too much wattage the meters will peak out too soon.
