    Boom Line-In - temporary offsite use

    I'm involved in an event where we're going to be showing a video via projector connected to a laptop. We don't have any obvious way of producing enough sound volume for the event (the laptop speakers won't do).

    I'm thinking that the line-in of the Boom might be the way to go. The Boom will produce plenty of sound. But I'm a little unsure if I can do this off-site, away from LMS.

    Advice?

    I'll be trying to make this work (as a test) later today.

    Line-In works completely without LMS. Some times ago I used a Boom as Stereo out for my TV. So it should work for your event, too.
    Maybe you'll have to set up Line-In first. IIRC you can find it in settings of the Boom or LMS either.
    Afterwards you can select Line-In as source.

    I've done this numerous times with a Radio. Just plug the wire in, the device auto-switches to the line in.

    I've just tried it and it appears to work fine. At first it didn't, then changed the line-in setting to always on, only to discover that I'd plugged the jack into the microphone spot rather than the output. Worked, presumably would work with always-on set to off.

    I did have to set line-in level to 100%, though.
