    Me again :rolleyes:

    What's the convention for which wire goes to tip ring or sleeve? Using M27500 wire (white, orange/white, blue/white). Garmin shows a legend for the TRS jack. It shows a legend for a 3 conductor, shielded cable. But it doesn't go as far as putting two and two together.

    Dealer's choice? Or is there a convention for this? Trying to keep this as standard as possible.

    Thanks!

    No one cares. As long al they work correctly. I shoot for at least uniform through the whole airplane.

    I like color prints too.

    My harness maker uses white for sleeve, white/orange to ring and white/blue for tip. I personally like the white/orange as tip because passenger mic jacks only need 2-conductor, and they don't need tip. As was already said, just be consistent and make a note of how you did them so you won't get messed up.
