RCA/phono/composite to 3.5mm audio?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I know there are plenty of adapters, but I wondered if any of you have hacked an RCA cable to a female 3.5mm audio jack? Any advice would be appreciated.

Specifically I wanna hook up my speakers to my PS3...

Thanks guys! :)

The problem is the differences between the innards of these cables. RCA's got many copper strands for each wire. 3.5 mm is the crap - for the most part it has one for each, twisted around each other, very thin, isolated with acryl. This isolation is not trivial to remove - can do with tweezers, carefully heating with a small torch so as not to melt the actual wire.

Unless you've done a fair bit of soldering, it will make electrons angry :)

I've done a fair bit of soldering before, but after Googling to no avail and looking around the house for one of these cables for the last 40 minutes, I think I'll probably just buy one :p
