You know, I see this word "short" all the time. What does "short" mean? Are we talking millimeters or feet? I have some earth wiring that's at least 20cm, and I have no problems. What am I risking with such a long run?

Nuuk,

This was just a test case is just test wiring just to make sure everything was going to work. On Friday I get out of school for 2.5 weeks and was planning on making very short wiring and a good box, but I guess I needed to make a more perminant box with shorter connections to start with.

Due to my box design which I thought was going to be good to decrease itnerference turned out not to great because I was un aware of AC and DC voltages crossing and creating interference.

The box that it was in, I think would be much better for an amp without volume controls due to the RCA wires right above the amps but not too spead apart that you have to seperate a nice pair of RCA wires, and the speaker outs were very close.

But I'm going to work on a better design considdering I do need a pot.

Good luck with the kit.


Kneadle,

My "short wires" for example my speaker out are about 3cm. I think If you can keep most wires less than 20cm is pretty good.

Short means as short as is practically possible taking into consideration other factors like the proximity of different parts of the circuit that may adversely affect another part!

No wonder there is a need for so many lawyers over there!
