Is there anyway to add something to my radio, maybe something to plug into the additional speaker slot, that will allow me to listen to my radio on a bluetooth wireless speaker?

I'm assuming that with 114 views and no replies that my question was just so stupid that it didn't merit a response. I guess I'll hard wire the speakers.

I thought the question was interesting, not stupid. But, seems unlikely to me, as "bluetooth" implies a driver, and I don't know how to install a driver on a radio. But, since there are computers (at least CPUs) crammed into almost everything these days I had better not say that it is impossible. Especially as you didn't give any hint about the radio brand/model.

For an "off beat" item like that I would search Cyberguys.com.

I am buying an internet Sirius satellite table top radio for my wife. I was going to buy an additional “Bose” wireless speaker with the hope of enabling her to take the speaker from room to room. The “Bose” speaker is Bluetooth. I’m not that tech savvy but I think that it might be something cool to invent, if not already invented; plug into an aux audio slot and have it transmitted via Bluetooth. No?

Bluetooth has a short range. She wouldn't be able to take the speaker far from the radio even if it supported some type of Bluetooth connection.

Sure.

You need a bluetooth wireless audio transmitter though. That plugs into your radio and sends the audio signal to your (bluetooth) speaker.

Check for signal compatibility first though. Bose likes to go "dedicated".

Great advice; thank you all. I'll be doing some more research and decide if the additional cost ($75 or so) merits the purchase. Once again, thank all
