Cut off the braided shielding and filler; positive (white) soldered to center, ground (blue) soldered to outer ring


[ optional: 9560T8 ]

After soldering, dip past the outer cable; the result if virutally water-proof, though it may deaden your sound somewhat; a bit of heat-shrink tubing over the dipped edge will help prevent it from peeling



Any length up to about 12 feet (4 meters) works fine - over that and you may experience some signal loss
