Hello. I have lurked on the forums for a while, and I've recently decided I want to try my hand at re-cabling. I am almost completely uneducated when it comes to electronics/circuitry (beyond putting together a few PCs).
I have assembled a parts list and I was hoping someone could just help me make sure everything will work/fit together [i.e. SIZES OF SLEEVING, HEATSHRINK, PLUG COMPATIBLE W/CABLE size]. I was also unsure about some of the vendors & prices so any word on that would help [I realize the multimeter is terrible, but I was thinking I would only need to measure current to verify which wire (left v. right) I'm dealing with].
Note: I already have solder and a soldering iron from an older monitor repair job, but if I am missing any supplies I would appreciate any input. I am additionally considering the use of a hair-dryer and/or soldering iron for the heat shrink part, so any help on the technique would be great. Same goes for stripping wires (was considering a knife/scalpel).
Connection Questions (having been thoroughly confused by a lot of vague guides):
1) I was wondering if it would matter how I connected the wires to the driver as long as the wiring orientation on both drivers is identical (in phase?). I was thinking of doing this to a pair of Denon's but am unsure (and don't know how to find out) about which solder pad on the driver is for the signal wire and which is supposed to be ground.
2) Finally, if I choose the two blue wires as ground and the two white wires as signal, I would imagine that the two blue wires would be soldered to the bottom ring of the 3.5mm plug, and the two white wires going to left and right. Please correct me if I am mistaken here.
Thanks for all the help.
