I have an Optima digital projector that has the convenient capability of playing video files from a USB stick, SD card or even from on board the projector itself. However, very inconveniently, the only audio out provided for any of these video options is just a crappy little 1" speaker on the side of the projector. In other words, there are many video in jacks on the device, but not any audio out jacks.
I am wanting to add an audio out jack (1/8" mini phone jack) in order to send audio to a larger sound system when playing video from on board or from a memory stick.
Would I just bypass the leads to the speaker sending them to the jack I'm adding? I suppose I would be just getting a stereo mix to mono (since there is only one speaker), but it would certainly be better than the speaker.
Mind you, when playing from a computer this is, of course, not an issue because the audio comes from the computer itself.

Hi
That would work but you would need to keep the volume level low to avoid overloading your external amp and the audio quality may suffer a little,
One of these inbetween speaker and amp would be better http://www.amazon.com/Speaker-Level-Converter-Adaptor-Control/dp/B007VTMSEO]http://
