How to connect a speaker to a DC modem?

Post by dymeh » Sat Sep 13, 2014 5:13 pm

Out of nostalgia really, it would be kinda nice to hear it coming from a DC modem. Anyone know how to do this? Thanks.

Plus I've got two modems:

Pal model HKT-7140
Jap model HKT-7100

Anyone know if these are 56k or 33k?

I believe they're 56k. Modems always stopped playing the sound from the speaker once the connection was established. I don't know if the DC's modems have all the hardware for connecting a speaker to it. Might be easier just splitting the phone line and picking up a handset and muting the microphone.

I am certain all Pal modems were 33k.

Ah, so the 56K modems were mostly available in North America.

The list at this point is not exhaustive, it's mainly based on modems I got my hands on,
so you can't make such conclusions at this point.
(I only had a few US/Canada dreamcasts compared to a lot of japanese ones & a few PAL ones)
