A fire extinguisher to put the speakers / MP3 player out after you fry it with 24 Volts??? :frustrated:

The pinholes are 24 volt. Wire up to ONE of the batteries and out of the battery try to a handily placed and secured double-cigar socket thing. I did not run a kettle, fan, Kenwood stereo with 40w speakers, phone charger off similar in my LR during TELIC 1.

You have to mount the speakers on the roll-cage behind your head or you'll never hear anything. The inside of a Landrover is not exactly the most ideal accoustic environment.

cheers for that maj but didnt understand it too well im not very tech minded

You havent specified which Landrover varient you are using, as on the TUM(HS) WOLF , the inspection lamp socket is 24v , however on the 110 (Defender ) it is 12V

Ahem!
Might I add that what you are suggesting is an illegal modification?


:p



Punishable by a forced Gems submission and a picture in the craftie mag

Or....

24V divided by 2 Sockets = 1 Socket @ 12V...so just plug into one of them!!!!!
Are you sure :?

What a FCUKING RIDICULOUS Thread!

Best Advice.... Leave well enough alone!

If it's not issued don't fit it. The Corps should not be encouraging yet another means of flattening batteries resulting in another waste of Recovery Resources.

I'm all for dumbing it down for the mentally challenged, but lets not forget that REME are a "Technical Corps" fcuking "Pin Holes" indeed.

Bollox! Get hold of some battery operated Speakers, plug in MP3 player, punch/bribe/threaten store-man when you need new batteries!

Get a 24v/240v inverter (available from all good truck stops) if the L/R is 24v or a 12v/240v inverter (from a camping shop) if the L/R is 12v. These produce mains voltage electricity from the vehicle batteries.

Use mains adaptors as you would at home. Better still, if your L/R is an FFR, remove the radio and fit your hi-fi from home in it's place. You'll need a lot of bungees to hold it in place if you have to go cross-country, but you'll have the advantage of bigger speakers. Plug headphones in if you need to go tactical.

Maybe a bit of experimental electrics work will spark ( ho ho) an interest in things electo-mechanical for Buckshee that will lead to a long, useful and productive life in the LAD.

On the other hand it may just lead to a TUM sized bonfire on the A303..........

Land Rover Special vehicles do an ac generator that bolts on to a 300 tdi engine where the a/c compressor would be if it was in a civvie vehicle kicks out enough juice to run a small house
