    I had trouble finding good undersuit reference out there so I figured everyone else was too NobleofDeath16 also has a really good general ODST reference pack.

    I didn't realize you had it mounted in a port, that's pretty awesome.

    330k for whatever reason seemed to work best for me. Any higher and it got too quiet, any lower and there too much distortion. Couldn't tell you the math of it. I may do some more experimenting tonight just for giggles.

    Simple Helmet Speaker System

    I've tried both that kind and a deeper 1" speaker with an actual cone to similar effect. It's not that it's inaudible, but that lowering the resistor value increases volume, but also increases distortion because it seems to be overdriving the input of the amp. I doubt adding a second speaker...

    It made it a little better, but still not quite as loud as moe's seems to be. The level of distortion is also quite high- to the point that words are no longer intelligible. Consider also that your speaker will sound very quiet until you baffle it, so try mounting it in a sheet of cardboard or...

    Simple Helmet Speaker System

    Ok got it working! I ended up using a 330K resistor instead of the 4.7M. It sounds pretty crunchy but I was able to get it a little louder.

    By the end of dialing in your setup, where did your electret preamp and amplifier gain settings end up?No matter how high I turn them up, I'm having trouble getting any kind of volume. The amplifier is definitely seeing the input; when you blow into the mic or tap on it you can hear it, but...
