Search the rules for "noise" or "music". There used to be rules about it; I don't know if they carried into this year or not.

B. Speakers, sirens, air horns, or other audio devices that generate sound at a level sufficient to be a distraction.

It does say it's only an issue if it causes a distraction, so if you wanted to have a speaker that infrequently plays audio at a low volume in the pit, it might be acceptable. Though it would probably be better to have the audio player as a separate mechanism on the cart or a pit table rather than the robot so it doesn't cause any problems during matches.

I invoke E25 and E12, and banish the audio player from the cart and possibly from the pit as well.

E-rules are at https://www.firstinspires.org/resour...ent-experience.


You may want to ask Q&A, along with a more detailed description of what you're trying to do. Specific is good... But in the Arena, it'll be hard to hear anything the robot is saying.
