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 Cablehttp://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=bulletsandbon-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B001SU8XS2

     

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

    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
