Voltage issue on Terminal 6 and 10
« on: December 04, 2018, 11:09:40 pm »
Hello,

Just finished assembling a Crack kit and everything checks out good except for Terminals 6 and 10 which both read ˜100 Volts. Any ideas?



Best Regards

Can you post photos of your build?  Please do not attempt to use this amplifier in its current state.

Your headphone jack looks to be improperly wired.

The inputs don't appear to have the solid copper wire link for the earth. The silver wire is rather confusing as there looks to be 2 wires in places where my crack only has one, especially at the headphone jack as PB says. Why did you use this wire? All my wiring is black red and white as supplied by BH. No green or silver.

All leads have been properly tested but I might have missed something. I will rewire the input/output section and report back how it goes. Using these wires for aesthetics but will try using the solid wires to make it less confusing to look at. Thanks for the help.

Yes, you missed some connections on your headphone jack.
