next is the patch bay, if using rca, or any 2+ termenal conector, make sure you use the same pin on every jack. this may seem obvious, but its easy to overlook some times, and if you miss it youll wonder why it doesnt work, and then youll tell your frineds "dont ever listen to mikebike on the EA forum, what a jerk"
heres a bonus rca patch cable pictorial!
rca cables are supposed to have shielded cable, but i had this flexible 2-conductor stuff lying around, so i used it
first strip your cable like so
now is a good time to decide witch (whitch wich) conductor will be hot, and witch ground, i chose red as hot. solder the hot lead to the small lug in the center and the grnd to the big lug with the wire grabber. i like to push the casing (black insulator) toward the conections a little before pinching the clamp thinger, looks nice and neat
next: heat shrink.... cut a piece, slide it ovever the assembly, dont cover the threads on your plug though, then hold over a lighter twisting the cord and moving the lighter slowly, keep the cord far enough that the heat shrink tubing doesnt burn
the heat shrink tubing is nice beacuse it protects the joints and looks nice when you slide the cover on
i didnt take pics while doing the other side, but remember to slide the cover, then the heatshrink tubing on the cable, BEFORE soldering the jack on.
oh yeah, reapeat untill you run out of jacks
