Both speakers work great with our Wave shield or class D amplifier board. Just be careful not to overdrive it if you’re using the class D amp breakouts as it can put 1.7W into the speaker, blowing it out! Start with lower volume and increase carefully.
Listen up! This tiny 1″ diameter speaker cone is the perfect addition to any small audio project where you need an 8Ω impedance and will be using 0.5W or less of power. We particularly like this cone as it’s very simple and its metal body is extremely lightweight. It’s very similar to the speaker in the Drawdio kit.
This 1.5″ diameter speaker cone is the perfect addition to any audio project where you need an 8Ω impedance and are using 0.25W or less of power. We particularly like this cone as it’s very simple and its plastic body is extremely lightweight and thin. Originally designed for ‘talking’ greeting cards, its fairly loud yet lightweight.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
