    Default using a 5w with the mr luke sound module

    i was kicking around the idea of going with a 5w green in my upcoming qui gon hilt project and im trying to figure out how to run a luke mr board with it for sound. would it be possible to run both off the bat pack that comes with the basic 5w green kit thru one switch if ran both pos and neg to the switch, then neg from the switch, to the mr board and then to the led, and ran a double wire from the pos of the switch, one direct to the led and one resistored to the mr board. im not the smartest guy when it comes to wiring, but to my limited mind this seems like it should work...

    ideas please guys, i need some help here!

    Default 5w

    james and i sat down this morning and got it worked out.

    for anyone wanting to do this type of setup, it is as follows:

    from the 9v connector run pos to one leg of the switch, from the other leg run 2 wires, one direct to the mr board the other resistored to the led

    the neg from the 9v connector goes direct to the neg on the led

    from the neg terminal on the pos side of the battery pack (flat coil) solder a wire to go to the neg on the mr board, creating a 4.5v current to the mr

    solder the switch wires together on the mr board to close the connection and your done...

    hope this helps anyone wanting a 5w with mr sound!

    The battery pack is a 9V at 3 layers stacked. You can tap the bottom of it for 4.5 volts.

    The only other part they are talking about is the switch. I think they're talking about an SPDT, but a DPDT would be even easier.

    It's simple (relatively) and it works! That's all that matters. People figuring it out themselves is always nice.

    I can't wait until there's an easy option though. Resorting to tapping always feels hackish.

    Sadly, some of us can only taste college tuition and having to use their spare money for food.




    Though I guess buttered toast is food, isn't it?

    Eat less... I do. Can't gain the weight at college if your not eating.
