OPERATION : K-1000 w/pics - Page 2

post #16 of 17
I doubt that Xanadu777 (who is also the owner of headphile cables) would have anything to do with the stock cables. As far as the box goes, my impression was that he was using two sets of cables one of fine silver and the other of copper magnet wire.

I left the stock headset cable attached to the PCB which then goes to the amp mains. I used solid copper for the few inches to connect that XLR.

What guage wires are you using inside the box, or as the silver/magnetic oxide coated copper? I would think that about 10 strands of 30 guage for either would make a nice cable. Then of course I wonder what you used to sheath the wires.
30 guage was used for the signals and larger guage for the grounds in air/teflon/techflex. 8 strands which remains pretty flexible in the configuration I used. The hardest part was maintaining the original rubber grommet where they enter each side. Eventually I got those on and in their little holding spot, then reinforced the protrusions with heatshrink.

And I just have to ask why you didn't use another 4 pin XLR at the lone cable end (the cable is held down by a tie wrap)?
I didn't want another connector in the signal for one, and silver, copper magnet and original runs are kept separate right to the mains, so I would've needed 3. Otherwise the front 3 XLR's on the box would all be the same. Just combined them in one techflex sleeve for tidyness. I formed a grommet with heatshrink, guess I left a tie wrap on too.
