Soundbar Power

A Dell soundbar under the landscape monitor suffices for my simple audio needs, and, when the Dell U2711 went toes-up, I conjured a 12 V wart from the heap. A recent cleanup made a smaller wart available, but required mating two coaxial plugs:

A snippet of brass tube suffices for the center pin. The outer shell is a larger brass tube, slit lengthwise, trimmed to fit the plug circumference and rolled around a smaller drill bit to make it springy in the right direction.

A wrap of silicone tape and it’s all good:

Ugly, but good.
