    Sound INTO the helmet?

    Hi,

    Has anyone ever tried to install speakers inside the helmet and some way to catch the sound from outside, to make it easier to hear?
    I couldn't hear what people was saying to me when I was trooping...

    Maybe someone have a nice solution?

    Re: Sound INTO the helmet?

    There are some great ideas over at jedi-academy.com. They involve Dremeling the long vertical slit on the left earpiece, and hollowing out the rear keyslots, placing mesh behind the open areas. I've done this in the past with a few helmets and it has worked very well.

    You mean one of these ? http://www.radioshack.com/search/ind...nd%20amplifier

    Would work well for what you want, put the unit in one of the side pouches, and run the ear bud up through your jumpsuit.

    Hope that helps

    Thx! Both options sounds good.
    And the hole cutting idea helps ventilations too...

    You know how the fett interior made by my Marrow Sun looks like it has internal speakers? That'd be pretty rad if someone actually made them in to real working speakers.
