Okay i just got my m2 and i am going to start working on my build up, i am installing a laptop and running it with a belkins auto/air adapter. I am going to use the M2 to power my LCD and my XBOX, now i am going to be using the m2 as a remote turn on for my amps, i know it is pin J6 but question is what kind of connector do i use to wire up the pins? Also how do i wire up the jumper settings?
okay i figured out what cable to use for the jumper connections, now how do i wire it up correctly? There are 2 ends to it each has a red/black wire alternating, now if i want to set it up to jump #2 which is the suggested settings, i connect one end of it to A, but what does the other end get connected to? Nothing? also which way does the red/black go?
No ones ever wired up an M2 before:?
Most people don't wire up the M2ATX the way you're going to use it.
Red wires are +12v. Wire them both to your constant +12v source.
Black wires are ground. Wire them both to your ground.
Yellow wire is ACC. Wire it to your switched +12v source.
You are aware that this is all outlined in the M2ATX Manual, right?
I had 3 wires with my M2: Red, White and Black. Red to battery or in my case distribution block. White to Cig lighter ( Hope that is ok because the wire to Cig lighter is small) Black goes back to the battery. I was a little confused on the amp remote wire. There are 2 pins on it but my amp only takes 1 wire. I just used an old 2 pin connector that was for a motherboard reset switch. I cut the wire and just connected the RMT wire. The other wire I just taped up.
J6 Controls amplifier via remote ON/OFF. Left pin is RMT, Right pin is GND.
Put that on the pins according to what mode you want. I use the suggested mode (5sec / 2 hour suggested) so I put that connector on B. This should have came with your M2.
There should be no wire coming from that connector. All that connector does is short the 2 pins together. Its a cap just push it on the 2 pins.
