egodriver led prob
« on: February 10, 2011, 10:16:28 AM »
this one has me stumped, i recently finished my 2nd ego build "1st one was for a friend and it turned out awesome so now i want one" everything seemed fine "sound-wise" until i hooked up the led, after i wired up the led there is a noticeable drop in gain, anyone ever heard of this?

i'm not sure how the LED would have anything to do with it. 

Sounds like something is loose or is grounding out when it's not supposed to.  Pics?
