Of course. I have a set of those flat panel SI speakers mentioned on this
list awhile back and a set of #220-0282 and a set of #220-0272 from here:
The first set of speakers costs $4.95. Each speaker holds 3 C cells. Or it
can be powered by an external 9 to 15 volt power supply. I use a
straight-through 12 volt cig lighter cable in my motorhome when I use them
outside. Those speakers sound amazingly good, especially for $5! I use C cell
NiMH batteries in the speakers. Very convenient.

I bought several sets of the second speakers when they had 'em for $12.95 last
summer. Great speakers. They come with a 15 volt wall wart. I power them
from either a 12 volt cig lighter cable or some tiny 12 volt switch mode
laptop computer power supplies I bought a long time ago. I have a couple of
sets mounted permanently using the supplied brackets in my restaurants for
background music. I have a set mounted in each of my motorhomes and in my
concession trailers. I have a set in the shop, in my bathroom and on my
computer. I like 'em :-) Not the greatest possible sound but for the price,
hard to beat. MECI has a subwoffer to go with them. I bought one but frankly
I can't tell much difference.
