Help with integrating stereo to intercom system?
I have tried to integrate my stereo into my new IMC MIT-100 intercom system by tapping into the rear speaker wires with capacitors, isolation transformers and 3.5mm plug as shown in the diagram from Bob Weir.
I am having trouble in that the sound is crackling and fading in and out. I am not sure if I was supposed to remove the rear speakers from the equation or if I installed the Caps backwards, but would like some feedback so hopefully I can remedy this and enjoy music in the headsets rather than always blasting it from the front speakers.
Here is the schematic that Bob has posted in another thread to help someone. I assumed the capacitors would go with the positive (long lead) toward the transformer and the negative (short lead) toward the speakers. Assuming that is correct I don't think I did anything wrong unless the speakears should be taken out of the equation when using the headset?
Any help would be appreciated.
