    I just wear the headset for my mic and FRS under the helmet.

    It can be done, just trying to do it as effectively as the Cyberdyne Labs version is the thing. They make an incredible awesome version, complete w/ Fett's voice, but it's $400+.

    I got one at radioshack, Shackman turned me onto it. It slips on over your head, flexible mic comes around and rests in front of your mouth. Very easy to position and wear, if you get the head thingie to stay on while putting your helmet on!

    The cord from the headset I wind down the back of my armor, hidden by the cape/jet pack. I hooked the speaker on the back of my belt. Volume control works really well. Gives a darn nice effect. Really gives people some thought.

    Only one small drawback...
    After awhile of hearing you, they will ask one thing:
    "Why do you sound kinda strange?"

    "Because the sound is coming out of my butt!!!"

    Hey BH

    Just a thought on this, (and it's probably been said before, sorry if I missed it:o) couldn't you put the speaker in one of the front pouches on the belt ?

    Might avoid the comments about 'butt' talk

    Yup, it's more than likely do-able Jason. Run the mic cord out the back of the helmet, under to the front of the vest, put on the belts, etc. When the pouches finally go on,hook the mic into the speaker inside.

    I didn't make it real clear in my post, sorry. I was testing the speaker set up while wearing my custom Mandalore suit.
    Similar to Jangos, but no front pouches...



    take care,

    You are referring to problems with feedback. The best way to try to avoid feedback (that I have found) if you are going to try to stuff it all in the helmet is to mount the speaker behind your head. *Your head can eliminate the feedback.







    *I am not responsible for whatever new form of cancer using your head as a radio buffer gives you.

    that was what I was going to say its all about the feedback. If you put the mic and speaker close together well, we have all heard the squeal from that.

    I guess the keyholes would be a good spot far enough away to prevent that, something worth trying for sure. Is there any type of feedback inhibitor?

    There has to be something or else hyperdyne wouldn't be able to function as I have heard people claim with that set up it doesn't matter location wise of mic and speaker (this may be incorrect as it is second hand information).

    Can't wait for any solutions that won't cost me $400.00.
