    Need help for custom RCA input jack in console

    I'd like to install an RCA input jack into my dash or console. Anybody know where I can find something like that? I went to my local hardware store and Fry's and they didn't have anything that would look like it would work.

    Also, I'd like to mod a video switchbox and mold that somehow into the dash as well, so I could control my various inputs (PS2/carputer). Anybody know of a small one that could be easily taken apart and could fit in a glove compartment or something?

    I bought an RCA input adapter for my Pioneer deck. Basically its an ip bus connection on one end then a foot long cable and then a small box with rca jacks on it. I boght mine from crutchfield.com. Look at my sig for the model number. Since I don't know what kind of receiver you have, if any I can't help u more than that, sorry.

    we just did something like this in a car we were working on in my shop. i think my boss got some raw rca inputs at our local electronics store. maybe try jameco or digikey, i think u will have to solder though.

    and for the switch, you could use a simple switch, or even a relay.

    I've seen single input connectors, but I was looking for something in a row (YWR) to make the install look a little cleaner and easier.

    Thanks for the link, but I was looking for colored input connectors. The ones linked only show standard red ones. It's not that big a deal to take apart an old broken VCR or something, but if there's something better out there that would save me some time, it'd be great.

    Cool, thanks much. This should work nicely, depending on how good my dremel skills are.
