Haven't yet received my kit yet so might be putting the cart before the horse, but wanted to get some info on the Hacks Output before I order more parts for my amp build.
What I'd like to do is use the Hacks Output to run into a VU Meter. I've never used one in anything I've built, and the info I've googled on wiring up on an amp just confuses me. The VU meter is the cheap chinese version on eBay for ~$8 and has 4 leads on the back. Two + and two -. One set feeds the meter, second set is for powering the meter's light (or so it would seem). Can the +/- outs of the Hacks Out wire into the VU meter? Doesn't need to be accurate, just looking for some eye candy to bounce around. Here's the link
If it can be wired up, what resistor value do I need for R14? What about RPD2? I've also seen full on circuits to be wired to vu meters. is this something that I'd need? Any suggestions on how I can wire this up? I'm limited on space, this isn't going in a full head or cab, it's going to be in a hammond enclosure. Oh, and I intend on using the 4 AA battery for power, if that matters.
(sorry for the mispost on the High Gain thread. Didn't mean to put that there or hijack anything).
