Hello again all:)
Are the 2 - 68, (1 on each board) for 68 OHM resistors?
And the one 68k on the filter board? The closest part I have for that is 68.1k resistor. This is the correct part?
2 - 10k resistors go in the 2 - 220 spaces on the lower left of the filter board for the eyes?
I have 1 - 16.5k resistor left over? 2 were ordered, only 1 needed?
I’m having great fun building this:)
I don’t have my kit yet so some of these I’m unsure about. 68.1k is well within 1% tolerance (67.3k-68.7k) so you should be good there. The 2 “68” resistors would be 68 ohm. And I only see one 16.5k resistor according to the BOM.
(The 10k question I have no clue…)
Thank you so much for all your help!
I have 2 more quick questions:
I’ve never seen these xicon film caps before (220p), how do I solder them? They are not polarized? Do I solder one lead to one of the 2 pads that are grouped together, bend the other lead over and then solder that one in the pad that is not grouped in a pair? Thus, one of the 2 pads grouped will not be used?
Also, looking at the picture, do I jumper R2 and R1 as show?
There are 3 pads for the caps: [[1 2] 3] (1 and 2 are grouped ; 1 is close the IC, 3 is on the exterior). You need to either stick the cap into 1 and 2 ; or into 1 and 3. It depends on the cap - sometimes the leads are put in a funny way and it’s easier to solder with a larger distance between the holes.
You need to jumper R1 and R2 unless you want to put volume / input gain pots there.
Great! Thank You!
