Well this works for anything that has an audio line out, and can be hidden inside the fish. So you plug an 1/8" audio cable into a home mini, and take it apart and hide it inside the fish, you can follow all the other steps here.
That's a pretty strong accusation. As an author of a few DIY articles that have found an audience, it can be really hard to help people troubleshoot especially if they are totally new to the subject matter. I also wouldn't be surprised if the author's code drifted a bit from publishing to finalizing the prototype, and maybe api specs have changed as well.
I understand with the stress of a team project it can be frustrating if a guide isn't perfect, but the spirit of DIY is that it takes some leg work and frustration. You didn't pay for this, and the author has put some serious effort into writing up how the project was done. Even if they simply focused on the carpentry aspect, and followed another guide to get this working (which seems unlikely to me), that's still a solid addition to a popular project.
Looks like we've got a useful suggestion followed by some self promotion.
I used the onboard speaker already inside Billy Bass which nicely integrates, but I'm not super familiar with amplifiers. Would a low power amp with the same speaker make a difference?
