    In a few weeks, I’m going to have 6 switches mounted in the sunglasses holder (led lights, air compressor, air locker, etc) and one of them is a gag switch. When I flip the switch, I want it to play this sound effect. https://www.myinstants.com/instant/and-his-name-is-john-cenaaaaaa/

    How do I make this happen? I assume I need some sort of speakerbox but I’m clueless as to what device I need and how to wire it to a rocker switch. Please point me in the right direction

    This is a good start! I think I want to avoid using the internal stereo system so it doesn’t need to be changed to the “aux” setting on the radio. So maybe I could hide the decoder in the roof panel and give it power via a fuse tap?

    Yeah, it runs on 5v, so you'll want to hook up something like this:
    https://www.amazon.com/Compact-Hard...ords=micro+usb+hardwire&qid=1590942461&sr=8-4

    That board only puts out 3 watts, so if you want a little more you'd need an external amp.

    Not sure how that board operates, but you might need some soldering to hook up a button to it.

    Ok first piece of the puzzle arrived. My passengers are gonna be like “oh that’s funny, what a jokester he is (referring to me) but nothing is gonna happen” and then just when they least expect it, JOHN CENNNNNNNA is gonna blare loud from above!
