    I saw a install guide and review which recommend 30 gauge but I used 27 gauge that my nephew got me from where he works. Can't turn down free stuff.

    Hello There

    Make sure you have the right wire, I made the mistake and used the wrong wire on another console and i had to bin it.

    I now use Kynar wire 30awg. It is very flexible and single cored, so is very quick to set in with the solder.

    Hope this helps!!
