Thread: Help With Hasbro Sound Boards

    Default Help With Hasbro Sound Boards

    I'm working on a saber made with extra parts I have. A couple questions came up I need answers to. If you know, please lend me your advice and knowledge. Thank you in advance.

    1. I own an Obi-Wan ROTS, Luke ROTJ, build your own, and Qui-Gon Jinn plastic Hasbro sabers. Which sound board is better among these 4 to use as a sound board for my saber?

    2. I have a Corbin's 3w Mom. driver. Can I use my Hasbro sound board with it for my saber? Initially the board was too wide to fit inside of my MHS hilt so I CAREFULLY sanded the sides down a little so it will fit.

    I Think the "buid your own" SW-616 is the most versitile if you are planing on 2 seperate circuits. there are a few posts kicking around showing how to wire it. I am very satisfyed with it in my latest saber.

    If you are going to use the Corbin Driver I would use the Obi-Wan. Personally I like the sound better. But that is a matter of opinion. Use whichever board you lke the sound of best. You can use a clash sensor from either of the other boards for the corbin C+L. Just make sure to use a DPDT or DPST momentary switch for the activator. You can use a single SPST switch but it tend to mix the signals to the board, a little harder to wire correctly. Thats about it. I have used that setup before and it works pretty well.

    DarthFender, when you made yours did you use Corbin's momentary driver with it as well? You wouldn't happen to have a wiring diagram would you? I am using my Qui-Gon board right now since I fried my Luke ROTJ. I can't get it to work any better though. I have only tried using the Hasbro boards with Corbin's driver and the best I can do is get it to work without any sound and the LED constantly stays on. At this point I don't care which board I use as long as I can get it to work properly. I have both DPDT and DPST momentary switches, does one work better with the board over the other? This is how my Qui-Gon board is currently wired.

    Take a look at the first couple of pages from the Dooku Hilt Progress threads...I had pretty much the same questions as you and with the help of other members I got it to work based on the pics that I have.

    I suggest using a DPDT switch to control the Corbin Mom board and the Hasbro sound card so you can do without two switches. You then can install a FOC switch that will attach to the black and yellow lead that you have on your Corbin board pic.

    The two switches will work the same. Just make sure if you use a DPDT to wire it so that the switch is normally open. that's why there are 6 posts on those switches one side is NO the other side is NC. There is a diagram in the CUtaways and wiring diagrams section of the Forum. Stryder put it in there. The only difrence I would make is to use the DPDT or DPST switch.this keeps the momentary signal to each board separate. They can use the same power supply is use are using a 4.8 - 6v battery pack any more than that will fry one on those boards. I know cause I have fried a couple myself.

    Here's a link the that diagram...
