Deliberate larsen with Zoom H5

Post by Tropicalice » Mon Sep 05, 2016 4:04 am

Good morning everyone, I'm new on this forum, and I haven't the pretention to know anything about soundrecording techniques (I'll begin my study in this way that year), that's why my answer should seems stupid.

I'm fascinated about the feedback, and for a school project I would like to produce it using my zoom H5 connected to a cheap speaker. I know it could damaged the speaker, that cost 8 euros, this isn't a real problem. I just want to know if it can damaged my zoom H5?
Thanks to read me.

How is the speaker powered, how are you connecting it. Pictures would be helpful.

The speaker works with AA battery cells, it's a portative one.
Connected to my Zoom with a 3.5 Jack.

Do you need pictures? I can make it later.
Thanks to you.

I don't see why this would be a problem or damage the speaker or the H5 unless there's something I'm missing.

I've occasionally done funny wiring of outputs back into the inputs and while I was figuring how to set up the monitor mixer, got feedback, the H5 seems to still work. It would probably be a boring feedback compared to using mics and speakers, unless you put an analog filter in the middle or something like that.
