MCS2000 Y-Cable Diagram

Postby towmater » Tue May 07, 2013 7:02 am

Can anyone guide me in the D.I.Y. creation of a Y-Cable for a dual head MCS2000 system?

I have a normal Model II head and another Model II head marked "Rear Control Head"

I was thinking of splicing two remote cables together. Is that a feasible method of connecting both heads to a single radio? If so, are there any cables that I should not splice and that should only be run to one head or the other, such as speaker wires?

Any suggestions/help would be appreciated!

I've seen that tried unsuccessfully several times (by people that were clowns honestly, so YMMV).
