What do you get when you spend about 6 hours cutting, splicing, screwing, labeling, switching, testing, TESTING, RETESTING?
A perfectly 100% working amp switching mechanism. I checked, double checked, and triple checked connection and polarity with a multimeter. I actually wired it all right the first time (I almost still can't believe it) -- so so much verification just had to be sure!
I had to go buy a professional wire stripping tool - this 12 guage speaker wire had a thick cut resistant coat and with how many dozens of wire ends I had to strip to do this a standard snips was NOT going to cut it (
). If anyone wants to know a fantastic wire stripping tool - I really enjoyed using this tonight:
Kind of expensive - but it makes short work of an otherwise very frustrating task!
Whatever - now it's definitely ready to go!
Darn it's late and I still gotta round up all the rest of the gear.
I'll be just taking it to work with me tomorrow so I can go directly over to your house tomorrow night to help set up Sheldon.
What I'm bringing over:
The home made Frankenswitch
Multiple Y RCA splitters for the amps to split the incoming signal
multimeter to set SPL levels based on ACV
Banana Plugs in case needed.
Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium (SB0880 card)
Crown XLS-202 (already at carps)
Inuke DSP 3000 (already at carps)
What else Sheldon? Anything else I'm not thinking of?
