DSATX aux wiring- make the circuit make sense for me!
I have a DSATX that I will be using for my car pc, and I'd like to use its aux turn on pins for the remote wire for my 5 channel amp. I know that it actually needs a circuit in order to make this work, but I'm clueless about wiring circuits. I'm expecting it to go from the pin-out of the DSATX to the remote turn on jack on my amp.
In my travels on MP3 Search Bar, I located this pdf detailing how to make the circuit, which should be the first of the two on that pdf. I need a little hand holding to know what I need to purchase and precisely how I need to wire it.
I can buy a 2n3906 transistor from radio shack no problem. I'm not sure what wattage resistor I need, as 3 show upon my quick search of radio shack. Do I need 1/8, 1/4, or 1/2 watt? It will simply be a remote turn on for my amp.
Once I have the correct resistor, will it be painfully obvious which way it needs to face on the wire? Does flipping it around due to naivety cause the circuit to work improperly?
Do I need to fuse any wire at any point, and if so what size fuse would I be using? I have 4awg fused at the battery running to my amp, and 8awg fused at the battery running to my DSATX.
Sorry if this is hum-drum boring, but I would prefer not wire things incorrectly. The only wiring I've done on my own so far was a zener diode to quiet down my cpu fan :)
