Hi everyone, I'm planning on doing an audio splitter for my computer, Basically, It will split my audio and have a switch so that I can switch the audio from my speakers to my headset with the flick of a switch, the cables won't be changed or hardwired into the system, so if i get a new headset or newer set of speakers that req. a 3.5mm jack, I can easily change it.
List of parts
2 or 3 of these
Radio shack 3.5mm panel mount phone jack(they should work for audio)
something like this
Radioshack 3.5mm male to male cable (although I'll have to find a shorter one or something.
A swtich like this
Radio shack DPDT switch
Now, I have a couple questions, I may have the swtich either mounted to my case, or to a box I'm going to make, The thing is, If i put it inside my computer, It may ground, What would be some ways to stop it from potentially grounding?
the other question, How would I hook the switch up? I believe it needs a ground, but a 3.5mm audio cable takes 2 cords (one for left, one for right) anybody know if its okay to just hook them up to one and the other side or what?
Everybody's opinions are welcome, and if anybody has any better idea's to go along with this, they can sure add something.
