    Newbie M2-ATX questions

    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?

    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?
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    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.

    Manual says:
    J6 Controls amplifier via remote ON/OFF. Left pin is RMT, Right pin is GND.

    Thats not what i am talking about at all, i know how to wire it up for power, i am asking how to wire up the jumper settings, the A,B,C,D pins, and how to wire up the j6 pin which is for the remote amp on/off switch. Yes its in the manual and i read the manual, but it doesnt actually say HOW to do it, i mean physically, it states WHAT to do but it doesnt say HOW. It shows which jumper pins to wire but how do i wire it? LIke i stated, the jumper cable has a red/black wire, the manual doesnt say which way the plug goes, it also doesnt say what you do with the other end if you wire it up for the recommended setting (A) only. These are the things i need answered.

    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.

    Yes i have the connection, but there are 2 of them with a red/black wire connecting them, if i want to do the setting you suggested do i just plug one end into the B pin and leave the other one free?

    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.
