 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I am planning on powering 5 sound sensors from the +5v pin on the arduino. Should I connect these in parallel or series to power each sound sensor? Also if possible how would a put them in series or parallel? I am new to electronics and circuits and don't understand very much yet.

Here is a link to the sensor..

Also, I am planning on only trying to see the sound level or if the sensor is being blown into.

You have to power each of them separately from 5V [ie, in parallel].

If you want to analyze the sound signals, then the signal from each board should go
into a separate A/D channel. However, the Arduino A/D probably isn't fast enough
to analyze normal audio signals, especially as you only have 2KB RAM to work with.

If you use the DO digital output of the modules, then you can hook them into separate
digital I/O pins on the Arduino, to simply detect yes/no on presence of sounds.

Sorry for the extra question which should be simple but how would  connect them in parallel?
