Theres no labels so I don't know where ground and vcc and input and stuff are :/ Thanks
oof no help here man, my backround is construction. you should change the title to something with the word schematic in it.
I like that idea !
It should say right on the schematic "VCC", "GND", etc. I don't know why it doesn't. I can't make out anything from that.
1 = GND
2 = +Left
3 = (not shown) left jack ground
4 = right jack ground
5 = +Right
3 & 4 just ground the input jacks when you aren't using them so that the equipment won't hum.
edit: There are no VCC and GND. It's a stereo input jack, not an IC chip.
Can you explain how you know that?
Looks like a diagram of a RTS (Ring-Tip-Sleeve) input jack. This type of connector is most often used for the following:
1. If it is a mini-jack, then for a stereo L/R connection (like to a PC or MP3 player).
2. If it is a 1/4" jack, then for either a balanced line (microphone level) connection or a send/return (on a audio mixer) connection.
A RTS jack has three wires, one connected to the ring (ground), one connected to the sleeve, and one connected to the tip.
A 1/4" RTS looks like the following...
Notice the 2 black insulator rings separating the plug tip into 3 sections: ring, tip and sleeve.
What? He said x = something. I want to know why he said that.
Thanks for the inputs guys, i still can't get this work . I'm not sure if my 1/4 jack is correct. Its the switchcraft 11, it has a tip and a sleeve, i ground the sleeve and stick the tip into a IC. Still nothing. I tried the 3.5mm he said and it didn't make a sound. Trying to make a small amplifier. Would it just be easier to stick the output of the IC into a little speaker than to stick it to this 3.5mm jack to hear it thru headphones? Thanks
A lot of experience in electrical work? *shrug*
