wiring diagram, the switch is on the rem line so i can manually turn on/off. You can put a relay in the power line like some people if you are worried about power drain, but i emailed the manufactures and they said best not to and in any case it only pulls milliamps when off so wont be a problem.
Az, where would be the best place for the power block, i see what you mean, would it on a vertical chassis member be better?
The power lead that comes with the sx260 includes a transformer to step down from high volts to 12 v, Pc's have it inside the case, this is how dell manage to make the sx260 a very small form factor. the lead from this "brick" to the connector that plugs into the PC needs to be cut and spliced onto the molex connector that comes from the DSX
Yes i soldered directly to the underside of the Mb, you have to dismantle the casework totally to do this, dont force anything, if you get stuck, give me a shout.
i put the DSX in a little project box with a fan to keep it cool
where are you based?
thats going to be difficult, its all fitted behind the capeting in the bulkhead, i tell you what, i've got another 260 at work , i'll take a pic of the psu lead and try some instructions, or send me ticket and i'll come over and do it for you, the weather here is *****
Hey richie how did you wire up the amp? Sorry for all the newb questions.
sorry for delay, been in hospital with nerve problems in my my leg, 3 months recovery!!
the amp was wired up as normal to the power, if you look at the picture of the power block in the front of the car, you will see 2 red leads, one is for the pc psu the other is for the amp, the amp is connected via rca/mini jack to the pc audio card, the result is okay but if you are a perfectionist a pcmcia audio card would be better
"a guy on another forum did it and i just bought it, he did do a pretty well documented thread on its construction if you want it, as for the pc cover, i haven'e started that yet."
Would you mind sending a link to, or the name of, the thread?
