  1. Lately I have been researching the many different ways people have installed sound amplifiers into their helmets. I saw a video on youtube by drunken mynock that inspired me to install one in my bucket. I found a few different pcb amplifier kits available online, but decided to try to find something local. I found this kit at Radio Shack called the Velleman Super stereo Ear Model: MK136 | Catalog #: 277-098.It has right and left mic inputs and outputs the stereo channels separately. Which is just what I wanted. Most the kits with two mics are mixed into mono out and I didnt want to use two separate amps. The kit was only $15.99. It is very easy to assemble and comes with good instructions. All you need tool-wise is soldering iron(40 watts or less), nail clippers (to cut off excess wire after soldering), and solder (I used 60/40 clear flux on this project, but you can use whatever you like). Assembly only took about an hour and a half. I got my old sony headphones and mounted them onto the ear bolts with lock nuts. Then I installed the two mics just as I had seen others do it, on the sides behind brow trim. I wrapped amp in electrical tape and mounted it with velcro. It sounds great and saves me room since i am using only one stereo amp. This is my first post and I didn't intend this to be a tutorial since there is already many ways to do this. I was just stoked to find something useful at Radio Shack for once.

  3. To me the problem seems to be that your face plate to low. If you could remove ears and rivets, then position the face plate to where the eyes are just below brow trim it would fit the ears a lot better.
