This little amp does a great job. I will say though, it is REALLY tiny. The soldering pads are very small, so you will want to make sure you have something to hold things steady and some small wire to go with it. And I would recommend at least the larger capacitors (680uF) from the dehum/dehiss kit: after I installed the amp without them, there was a fair amount of background noise. Once I put those capacitors in, the game sound is very clear. Video shows the stock speaker at max volume compared to the amp at max volume (without the louder solder bridges).
If you’re going to play your game boy advance you’re going to want to get this modification. You will need some soldering skills but it was a breeze to install. I was not prepared for how loud the speaker will get. You will not remember how you played the GBA without it. Check out my YouTube video for a full review and installation guide
Works great and was fairly easy to install.
These boards are easy to install and very effective. I have mine set on the softer setting and even there, its many times louder than stock. I definitely recommend it.
I also recommend the dehum kit while the GBA is open. Its cheap and good to have on hand incase you need it. Only 1 of my 3 board installations needed it but its always good to have it just in case.
Installed this on my GBA AGB-001 using 24awg wire and it fits perfect! Using the picture on the listing page as a guide really helped! Waaay louder than before!
Replaced speaker in both my dmg and gbc. Very loud, and didn't set it on the loudest option. Both installs weren't terribly hard, and there is visual install help for both. In the gbc I did the 680uf cap replacement at the same time, and the sound is crisp. Dmg is crisp as well. And both have IPS screens. I seen some reviews that say this only boosts 1 channel, but it sure sounds like it is amplifying both to me.
