One of my clients has a really nice conference room, but they never thought about having sound wired into it until now. There is a VGA cable going from the cabinet up to the ceiling mounted projector, and luckily it has a stereo audio (headphone cable) integrated into it. So I have a way to get a simple signal up there. He wants 4 speakers mounted in the ceiling, and this will be connected to a computer in the cabinet that does powerpoint and video presentations and such.
I had thought about putting a small DTA-100a t-amp in the cabinet and then piping its signal up thru that headphone style cable, and then splitting it out to feed the 4 speakers. Thats a total kluge, but I dont know another way to get signal up to them.
Can a headphone cable handle 25-30 watts per channel? And that plan requires wiring the speakers in series so that the little amp gets a 16 ohm load. (stock its rated for 50wpc @ 8ohms)
There is electrical power in the ceiling (right beside the projector), and I could theoretically put the amplifier up there and connect the speakers directly, but then how would the users turn the amp on and off?
None of the parts have been bought for this, but the budget looks like 500-600$ for all the parts.
Suggestions? What am I missing?
