Grove - Speaker


5.0V Digital

The Grove- Speaker is a module which consists of power amplification and voice outputs. The loudness can be adjusted by the on-board potentiometer. With different input frequencies, the loud-speaker generates different tones. Coding the music into arduino, DIY your own music box!


  • Volume Adjustable
  • Grove Interface

Platforms Supported


The speaker can emit a variety of sounds like a car horn, doorbell and ignition . The different sounds are based on the frequency of the input signal.

You can supply different frequency signal to this module with Arduino. Arduino generates these signal via PWM or even digital write and delay.Here we are going to show you how to generate these signals using delay(), the speaker sound bass 1~7.

/*macro definition of Speaker pin*/
#define SPEAKER 3

int BassTab[]={1911,1702,1516,1431,1275,1136,1012};//bass 1~7

void setup()
void loop()
        /*sound bass 1~7*/
    for(int note_index=0;note_index<7;note_index++)
void pinInit()
void sound(uint8_t note_index)
    for(int i=0;i<100;i++)


Due to the influence of the capacitance, the module can only output the bass signal, and the treble is unable to emit.

The platforms mentioned above as supported is/are an indication of the module's hardware or theoritical compatibility. We only provide software library or code examples for Arduino platform in most cases. It is not possible to provide software library / demo code for all possible MCU platforms. Hence, users have to write their own software library.
