Pandora w/ Xenarc 700TSV and Barrel Connector
Hello all! As some of you know I am just starting out my Xenarc, Pandora, P1900 install in my G35 and I have a few questions on the connection types.
The connectors for the Xenarc and the Pandora use the same diameter connectors but with different lengths. The pandora uses a 2.5 and the Xenarc uses a 2.2mm long barrel connector.
When I connected the pandora connector to the Pandora it wasn't totally flush. When I connected the Xenarc connector to the Pandora it was flush. I haven't powered up the Pandora yet since I am still waiting for my RAM to arrive so I don't know if they are interchangable. Meaning, I don't know if the Xenarc connector will fit the Pandora.
I also picked up a Size M connector at Radio Shack. I tried to test fit the barrel connector to the wires coming from the P1900 and they didnt fit due to the wire size.
I also suck at soldering but I'm wanting to get better...
So...my first question is...what is the minimum guage wire needed to power the Pandora? Carnetix as well as a couple of other places have M sized connectors with leads on them but they are 18 guage. I don't know the guage of wire coming out of the P1900...
Will it be ok to use an 18 guage wire on the Pandora with an M sized barrrel connector? If yes, then I can pick up 2 leads...one for the Xenarc and one for the Pandora without having to solder anything.
My second question is whether or not I can use the 2.1mm connector for both the Pandora and the Xenarc.
