Re: sound system for tool box

Hi Preston,

From reading your post, Im guessing that you are just trying to run a wire from your MP3 player to the speakers. The problem with that is the MP3 player is not producing enough power to drive the speakers. You need some sort of amplifier to up the signal. I dont know enough about them to recommend one, but a google search for "battery powered amp" might turn up something.

Good Luck
