Ice Tube Clock: Able to continue without speaker?

by nrevan on Thu Jul 17, 2014 3:21 am

Hello! I recently got my hands on a Ice Tube Clock kit but found out that I'm missing a piece: the piezo speaker. Can I continue with the project just leaving a space where the buzzer would be? Or must I need a replacement component there to make the entire thing work, because I'm not gonna use this clock as an alarm anyway..

Thing is I tried to find a replacement where I live with no luck and shipping that one component from overseas (whether from Adafruit or mouser/digikey) to where I live would cost an additional 30 USD. I also put up a message in support last week but got no reply from that as of yet.. =\

Thank you for your attention! ^^

If you are missing the part from your kit we can ship one to you - no charge. Please contact support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread.

The beeper is not essential to the operation of the kit. But it does have some diagnostic value when testing the kit, so we do recommend that you install it.
