Apartment + Projector + Chromecast + wireless speakers = possible?

At the age of 32, I've finally become an adult with my own apartment. Now I need an adult-sized audio/visual set up. Is it possible to have Chromecast (or other) plugged into a projector, and somehow getting the audio to go to wireless speakers? Also, when the projector is turned off, I'd like to be able to use those wireless speakers with Spotify. How do I set it all up? [more inside]

Skipping Bluetooth Audio

I just bought a Lenovo T440s laptop, and the audio is skipping when streaming it to my bluetooth speakers, no matter what distance I sit away. I had previously been using my iPhone 5s for this, and it was wonderful. Is this par for laptops, is it fixable, or am I doing something wrong? [more inside]

Is there a way to power my laptop using a car cigarette lighter?

I've recently purchased a car (my first), and have, on occasion, used a laptop as an mp3 player, which is a serious insult to my real mp3 player. While I just purchased a new battery, I'd love to go on A/C alone: My question is whether there's any way to plug my laptop (or similar device) into a car cigarette lighter?
