Pedalboard wiring.

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by BassInUrFace, Mar 23, 2010.

  1. I know so many of you are gonna say "get a voodoolab PP2+", well ive heard it a million trillion times before. And for a number of reasons it is easier and better for me to use 1spots.

    anyway back to the question.

    under neath my pedalboard i have attached a power board and put my 1spots onto that, secure with a couple of tip-ties and we're good. so all i have to do is plug the power board in and my hole board is good to go.

    but my problem is that 1spots have about 2 meters of cable untill the plug. my plan is to just wind it up and attach it to the bottom of my board out of site. but i know that winding up high powered cables, in houses for example, is not good and can cause them to overheat and you know the rest........

    My question is do I need to shorten the cable or because it is only 9 volts should i bother?

    The current draw is quite low, so heat will not be an issue. Roll them up and tuck them away under the board is my suggestion.
