VLX 91 5-way switch fun
So I just finished wiring a VLX 91 5-way switch into my Maxxas. I used to have push/pulls for coil taps but I thought this was a better way, since I could preset which coils I wanted. Here's what I have now:
2-Neck single coil-neck side
4-Both single coils-inside coils
That's no big deal, but the reason I shared it is because the next step I found particularly cool. That wiring option above only uses three of the four available switches of the VLX 91. So I had to think of something to do with the fourth, right? I ran the constant to the center lug of the pot (hot output) and still connected that to the jack. So now I'm running my tone pot and the High pass filter through the switch like this:
2/3/4: High pass filter
That way I have the tone knob/regular volume for the outside positions, and the High pass wired into the volume knob for the middle three, with the tone knob completely disengaged for that little extra sparkle in the highs.
I offer this to any of you that have the VLX 91. However it's wired currently, you'll probably notice that one of the switches is unused. Why not use it to direct which positions get the tone knob, or HPF, or both? If you are the kind of person that wants to disconnect your tone knob, but you have a couple positions you like it for, then here's the opportunity to have it both ways.
