SoundFilter: Can I make passive bookshelf speakers wireless?

I have an aging stereo with decent speakers that I'd like to somehow convert so that I can stream music from my phone or computer. Is this possible? Details and pictures inside. [more inside]

One stereo speaker works off and on. I think it's the receiver. Any fix?

About half the time when I turn on the stereo the left channel speaker doesn't work. If I turn the balance all the way to the left on the receiver, and increase the volume sharply, the speaker comes on. Then I can lower the volume, adjust the balance, and everything works fine till I turn off the stereo. It's the same with all sound sources. [more inside]

Can I fix this, or do I need to suck it up and get a new phone?

I've had my phone (a Samsung Galaxy S Blaze) for about a year and a half, and it is no longer under warranty. Recently, it has developed two problems relating to aspects of the hardware. I need to determine if I (a person with little to no experience with fixing electronics) can fix these problems inexpensively, or if I should just bite the bullet and buy a new phone. (I'm a student, so buying a new phone after less than two years is not something that makes my wallet happy.) [more inside]

How do I get the text for live closed captioning for church sermons?

I have a church and they have a signer for the deaf. They have asked for live closed captioning, but they do not want to have someone type it in in real-time. Is there speech recognition software good enough for live speaking, or even something that handles closed caption-style graphics? Once I get the text, I can handle it from there with some kind of video overlay. Thanks!

Need a speaker for my electric piano

I am not performing, just taking lessons and practicing in my home but I want something better than the (very) small guitar amp I'm using. Something perhaps in the $200-300 range that sounds nice. Thanks.

Single Speaker for my Nexus 7?

I'm looking for a simple awesome speaker that I can plug my Nexus 7 tablet into. I've used a set of desk speakers in the past, but I hate how there's two of them and the cords get all tangled. I'd ideally like a single speaker that plugs into the wall; something I can blast some sweet tunes on in the kitchen, and then pick it up and move it to the bedroom with a minimum of fuss.

Why replace the foam on speakers?

I have an old (30+ years) pair of speakers, and the foam rubber surrounding the woofers is cracking and falling off. Numerous DIY websites explain how to replace this foam, but none seem to answer the most important question: why would you bother doing this? The speakers still make sound. [more inside]

My cellphones are all bass and no treble, and this lack of treble troubles me terribly.

The internal speaker quality on most cellphones I've tried seems abysmal, yet no one else I've talked to seems to notice/care -- even those whose cell phones I've tried and which are terrible in exactly the same way. So: (i) Have I just had a string of bad luck with cell phones? (ii) Does anyone else notice this? and (iii) Is there a cellphone review site that actually rates speaker quality on cellphones? Or, better yet: (iv) Are there cellphones that have an equalizer I could use to adjust the speaker to my heart's content? [more inside]

possible to fix tv speakers buzz?

My boyfriend has a Phillips 32" in flat LCD HDTV, that appears to be from 2006 or 2007. The screen seems to still be in great shape, but the speakers have developed an annoying buzz. Is it likely that the speakers could be fixed at a reasonable cost, or do we need to junk the tv completely and just get a new one?

Recommend a Skype camera/speaker setup for a remote speech therapist

We live in South America and our son is in need of a native English speaker to work with him on pronunciation. There is no one here who can help, but as luck would have it, we have a relative in the states who is a licensed speech therapist who can help over Skype. We're looking for camera and speaker suggestions for both sides - assuming we have solved the bandwidth issue, is there a camera for a PC that would be ideal for this? Are there other speech professionals who have done this before?
