It is possible that you have the wire from the signal to the non-ground end of the input resistor coming from the wrong lug on the input jack.

Can you check with your ohmmeter, between the center connector of the jack, outside the box, to the negative terminal of the battery?

If that is a low reading, then reverse the wires on the jack lugs, inside the box.

On the other hand, if it's correct as is, then there should be a low reading between the ground/shield/outer part of the jack (outside the box) and the negative terminal of the battery.

You could plug your cable in, to do those measurements, if that would be easier, since the other end of the cable will have a tip that should be the center conductor, which should not have a low resistance reading to the negative terminal of the battery.

Even easier would be to plug in the cable and then measure the resistance from the tip to each jack lug, inside the box.

By "center connector," do you mean the tip?
