Question about Switchs and Wiring
Hello. I posted on the XboxScene forums but got no response in reference to my question. This mod would be very useful for those looking to use an Xbox as their carputer. I was reading the tutorial for the External Detachable Power Switch, and the author of the post mentioned the parts needed were:
- Three-Conductor Phone Jack Closed-Circuit Type
- Stereo Phone Plug (inside the package comes 2)
- Normaly Open Momentary Switch rated at 1A
- 20 to 30 gwd Wire that will reach from the 2 points of intrest. From the car to whereever your box is hidden (trunk)
He then later mentions in the tutorial to use "28gwd wire leaving enough slack for about a foot."
So would I need to purchase this (28gwd) in addition to the 20 to 30 gwd wire? Or could I entirely use 28gwd wire for everything with this mod? If I need to purchase seperate 20-30 gwd wire, what size should I get? And is there such a thing as gwd wire? Never heard of that before. One last thing, I would prefer to use a rocker switch for this mod, since it would fit in good with my dash, but I dont know if I could substitute it for the Normaly Open Momentary Switch rated at 1A? Your advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
