    I will leave it on for 3-4 hours. Does that sound about right? What should be the reading on a volt meter when I pull it off?

    Ok... I'm kind of upset here. I spent another $100 on the shop to get all of the components I'd need to get the saber working the way you told me I had to. I spent a decent amount of time...

    Dang it! Ok, if that'll fix the speaker static problem and the light strip color issue, I guess your tagline (at the end of your posts) is legit (LOL).

    Ok. That begs 3 questions:

    1) are the resistors I have on the switch LED (a Dynaohm resistor) and on the data line 330 ohm, still ok?

    2) I have 24/26 gauge wiring on the entire rig. Is that ok...
