RCA Conversion

Posted by Lou on 07/31/10


I have been reading other post talk about the rca input for power. Is there a kit that you can convert your traditional power over to have this rca input. Thanks in advance...

no kit needed... everything you require is at radioshack or any electronics store.

Yeah.. you can do it yourself from RadioShack parts.
Kingpin also makes 2 types for 5-6 bucks that are pretty nice as well.

yeah, im sure what you bought will work just fine... it's one of those things that no matter what you really do it will most likely end up working as long as everything is connected properly.

i just buy my rca connecters and adapters at radioshack. i mount a bent/curved needle bar from where the back binding post would normally be and fit it to the rca connecter.

i use a needle bar because you can angle the rca connecter anyway you want, and it matches with the rest of the machine.

Eikon and Pulse both sell them, they're about $8. Easy to make, but not worth the hassle imo. I'm pretty sure Gaston uses the Eikon ones.

If the hole (where the rear binding post goes) is big enough, you can just put the RCA connector there (the RCA is threaded) and just solder both the capacitor and coil to it and bob's your uncle :) You don't need to use the insulation washers.

We did this to a college's machines and it works perfectly. I've put the RCA set-up from Eikon on my FK Iron, and happy with their way of doing the RCA connection.

I like eikons personally, but you can defnatly go the radioshack route too. its nice to mount it straight to the hole for the rear post.

i like the look of the rca mounted straight out of the back binding post, but im left handed. i mount them slightly left of center in the back at roughly a 45 degree angle.

if by some chance i ever got a left handed frame id like to try that though. i think it looks pretty sharp mounted that way.
