Coleman M3 Meter Mod

Hello there. I'm attempting to modify my coleman M3 to send a stereo meter feed out to my dorrough unit. Glen Coleman was kind enough to send me the instructions but now i have a question since i'm a soldering newbie.

Can i connect a wire directly to the pcb and if so , can i just plug the wire into one of the holes and solder away? There are two holes for both the R & L hi & lo's. The following linked jpg shows the pcb ...

so i ran some wire from the board to the dorrough & all is well. Sometimes it's better to do first and ask questions last.

I know it's old, but are you still using this? I'm trying to decide between wiring up my Dcommand or continuing to use my Coleman M3.

Also, I may add Dorrough meters.

Yes you can solder directly to the PCB and those holes are just for that
You do need to replace the XLR outputs with panel mount jacks and solder to them as well

Hey man, I'm no longer using the M3 as I switched to the UA Apollo line a while back when I moved on from my HD system. 15 years since I wrote that post! Where does the time go?

I'm wondering if If I'll need the meters or my M3.

I'm leaning toward using the Dcommand/Xmon, and I can use plugin meters.

I've used the M3 for ages,but I think having programmable trims in this era of Sonarworks profiles may come in handy.
