I have an SB16 in my ibm 5162 XT.
All I want to know is- is it possible to hook up the output of the sb16 fairly elegantly to output via the internal ibm pc speaker. And also have it still operate as a normal pc speaker? How would one achieve this?

At this point, my external speakers are a bit overkill and I think the original IBM speaker was just fine for mono sound.

Cheers,
Al

in theory? sure, I think most, if not all SB16s have a PC speaker input.

so connect the motherboards speaker out to the SB16s PC speaker input and just wire the internal speaker to the speaker output of the SB16.

though I really don't see why you would want that.
you'd lose both the authentic PC speaker sound from your IBM as well as the sound quality your SB16 could provide.

Hi,

Did you try my MOD Player, Mod Master ?
To play .MOD in 16Bit at more than 30KHz and OPL3 Music, your external speakers will no more be overkill 😀

By the yay, I think the 5162 has a Piezoelectric speaker, so the SB16 sound may not work on it...
