  1. Ourdoor speaker setup

    Party Ideas. Experiences and Recipes
    Hi all! First, I will preface this with - not sure how to categorize this!, as its not really a prop Q, and not really a music-specific question either. Rather a general speakers set up.. In the past, I've run with a Jambox (company now obsolete, I think - but essentially a mobile BLUETOOTH...

    Halloween Props
    Hi, I'm toying with the idea of projecting onto my house for Halloween 2019, I would like to also have sound. I'm wondering whether I could have speakers (on low volume) for ToTs and an FM transmitter for people driving by. Firstly, are FM transmitters (for what I want to do) legal in the UK...
  6. Electronic/Software: Audio for random props, media player?

    Halloween Props
    For those who have multiple sounds coming from multiple props, what are you doing? Not talking about custom programming all hooked up to computer, etc. Just want to add sound to 2-3 props and have the speaker right by that prop. For example my rocking chair that moves, I want to have a speaker...

    Halloween Props
    I am replacing some of my old cassette tape players, to provide individual sounds for scenes, with some cheap mp3 players played through computer speakers. I am running the mp3 players continuously and switching power to the computer speakers to turn the sound on and off. Everything is working...

  9. Electronic/Software: Possible to amplify/add speakers to electric animated props?

    Halloween Props
    Is this possible? Seems that the animated props I see all have little speakers and would not sound very good if used outdoors.
  10. Electronic/Software: MP3 speakers

    Halloween Props
    I finally got around to figuring out how to download sound files .I Know, I know even Kindergartners know that today but whatever. So I had some of those ulrtra cheapo Chinese MP3 players and the power supplies so I soldered them up and they all work . Got some useful files from Gravecast but...
  11. Electronic/Software: Amplifier and speaker questions

    Halloween Props

  14. Prop Showcase: Clip of last year's yard BBQ with lighting tied to sound effects

    Halloween Props
    The audio is really quite loud, using 3' commercial speakers, but cell phone can't capture that. I also spent quite a while trying to figure out how to just upload the clip but I was never able to do so. Caveat - every forum I've used ya just pic a vid and upload it? Here I tried to use...
  15. Advice on sound wattage

    General Halloween
    Hi everyone! It's been a while since I've had music or sound effects in my haunt. I tried last year with a portable speaker that sounds great in the house but was barely heard outside so I scrapped it (probably 3W if I had to guess). Given that I'm way over budget this year, I want to try...
  16. Fog: "The Spirit Cabinet" made out of old organ speaker cabinet

    Halloween Props
    Last summer I acquired a big speaker cabinet from a 1960s Wurlitzer church organ. I removed the speakers and sold them leaving behind a motor that drove these big "flaps" that rotated in front of the speakers, which gave the sound a tremolo effect. So, I put a red light inside and a fog...
  17. Atmosphere Effects: New idea for a prop. Dancing Fog.

    Halloween Props
    So I was watching one of my favorite youtube subscriptions, Drunk Tech Review and they were reviewing battery powered bluetooth speakers. Anyway at 2:52 they throw in one of the speakers into some dry ice with water and the fog begins to dance to the music and I was thinking if you have audio...

  20. Mechanical: no sound from projector

    Halloween Props
    My Toshiba projectors have a jack on the back for audio but I can't get any sound. They were bought used so no instruction book. Is there something I'm missing other than plugging a set of speakers in? I also turned up the volume on the projector itself and still nothing. Any ideas? Thanks!
