I recently built a dog prop out of spray foam chicken wire and paper mache. I want to make him bark though from an audio source. I plan on getting barking sound bites online then playing those on something through a speaker, then from a wireless remote make it bark when people walk by.

So my question is how do I put sound bites on a cd or ipod then connect to a speaker and use this remote?

Heres the wireless remote: Technology Electronic device Wire Electronics Cable

You're gonna need an mp3 player or some type of audio player that can be triggered. You'll also need an amplifier and speaker. I have no idea what the specs are on the remote you have so it's impossible to tell you how to connect it.

continuously play your sound through one speaker, run one of the speaker wires through a 12 volt relay (terminals 85 & 86) hook your wireless power wires to terminals 30 & 87 of your relay.
Could I hook a cd up to the speaker, or an mp3 then wire that to the terminals, then my remote?

That will work if you want to play the audio in a constant loop.
What do you mean by a constant loop?

Like it will keep playing non-stop?

Or it hit the remote, 1 sound goes off, then I hit it later and its the next sound, and so on, like it keeps going through the tracks?

If you connect everything like your diagram, the relay is simply gonna make and break the speaker connection. It won't start or stop or change the track. If you are looking to do any of those functions you'll need some type of triggering audio player as I mentioned at the start of this thread.
