In order to increase the distance between mike and speaker, is it OK to add an extension cord to the computer-to-speaker connection? And if so, is such a mini jack extension available ?

 

Using a MacBook pro.

 

Thanks as always,

    yes, here's a 25' Extension Cable

     

    but the real solution is to use headphones; speakers and open mics don't work well for recording

    Thanks, Hangtime...and quite agree,  it this is for a demo where I  need the class to hear everything.

     

    Using a cardioid mike, so should be OK. I just wondered if the signal would suffer significantly.

    it shouldn't be any problem for speaker level; mic level signal can be difficult over long runs (which is the reason balanced cables/systems are used for that), but the amplified signal should work fine

    Thanks again. If feedback occurs, will just have to have someone turn the speakers on and off!

     

    Best to you.
