ENCLOSURE AND WIRING Step 4 of 4

PLACEMENT

You should place the assembled PCB and the rest of the elements (DC and 3.5 jack connectors, 9V battery clip, 3PDT foot switch, led...) in a metal enclosure. The following figure shows the components placed in a 1590BB enclosure. It is recommended to connect the ground to the enclosure in order to attenuate the noise (usually the GND of the input and output jacks are in contact with the enclosure).

You may need to remove the little metal tag from the potentiometers in order to place them in the enclosure.

WIRING

For the wiring, you should use 24 AWG stranded wire. Connect all the elements as indicated in the following figure. No matter the order you follow to connect the ground (GND) as far as all the elements are connected. The diode led requires a current limiter resistor, you can use values in between 2.2k and 4.7k for regular leds. The figure shows the connections for the DC connector used as a negative tip (standardized Boss style 2.1 mm with a negative tip orientation).
