    What's a good way of hooking one of these up? Can someone jot down the easiest way to do this and a parts list, please?

I have a mini fan but never got around to putting it in last year. I did hear of one guy putting it below his chin on the inside front of the helmet anagles up to his face. Now getting the helmet on after that would be tricky so he mounted his on an angles mount that sticks to the helmet with velcro so he can put it in after he gets the helmet on.

    or the cheaper route, a simple radio shack amp configured as I did for my trooper helmet:

    For the life of me, I can't find the exact name and number of my RS mic and amp... The amplifier is encased in a tiny white plastic box...

    well personally i dont think you need a fan system. but as to a good mic go to radio shack [img]http://communities.msn.com/_Secure/0MQBDGF4QMIlow1P3oCKnjWhFWC*WjC7EgO9D75pTTM*x9yapJ iC2aqnRkp1ABqCO0QA9tR5hCkqo2Qj468HPTQ/voice-mic.JPG[/img] here is a pic of it so it will be easy to find. it's called the 'personal microphone system' and the part number is 32-2015 the normal price is $29.99 but mine was on sale for 19.99 so yours may have it on sale too.

    Merged: Merged: Self Contained Mic? What to use?

    I'm looking to install a mic in my Jango helmet, but I want something that will come through a speaker in my helmet, not my chest or on a belt. Does anyone know where i can find a kind of headset or something of that sort for under or around $35?

    That's a tough one. I used the exact same Radio Shack amp, mic and laptop speakers that our Stormtroopers use in their helmets for a while, and it was never loud enough. People still had to stick their heads next to my helmet and say "What?" I think it's cause the speakers are placed front-facing in the aerators of the trooper helmets and they can't be with a Fett helmet. I had them at the bottom of each earpiece facing down, so the sound would come out the bottom of the helmet and sound natural, but like I said it was never loud.

    I just recently bought one of those Radio Shack personal PA units as described on the RPF a month or so ago. The kind that has the speaker in my belt pouch. Lynn and Dean O bought these also. It's louder, but I still wish I could figure out something self-contained in the helmet or upper chest that would be loud enough to hear and not sound like it's coming from my hip.

    I think it's because there's no forward facing place to stick speakers based on the shape of the Fett helmet.

    Kylash, if your doing jango, u could put a speaker under the rangfinder if the earpiece was lowered. that might work.

    do you mean dremel out the earpiece to make it hollow or what? I dont quite get it. My earpiece is lowered, but It was a Don Post so I just removed it and lowered it and glued in place.

    Would something like this work with the RS White Box?

    Ok, I was thinking of putting in my voice amp today, but I'm not sure how to go about it.

    I have the old $10 Galaxy Trading one, with the little mount for the mouthpiece. I guess I should glue that on the lower part of the inside visor in front of my mouth? Where should I run the speaker to?

    I'm not sure this would work, but has anyone tried a speaker in the neck seal? The sound would be clearer than in the helmet, and better yet, it would be coming out of the head area instead of your groin.

    So the neck seal idea wouldn't work? Too close to the mic?

    I've tried the speakers in the helmet, neckseal, and currently the RS unit inside the saddle bag. I didn't get feedback in the neckseal, but the speaker itself wasn't loud enough, same thing with the 2 stormtrooper laptop speakers in the helmet.

    The RS unit is the loudest so far out of what I've tried, but with the sound coming out of my left hip, it's still not loud coming out of my mouth area like it should.
