    regular phone cord is fine. you just need to know which wire goes to what. don't reverse polarity

    what do youmean by what wire goes to what? the phone cord can only plug in one way? or are you referring to the actually hard wire? i ordered a 3 way jack with splicing already done for the hardwire so i can plug in my mute switch and remote display.

    Wouldn't u like to know


    yeah i don't think you can reverse the polarity. Yes it will owrk fine. Just try and get the best quality cord you can. I have heard some people experience a voltage drop in cheaper and long cords. I use this setup however and have never had a problem.

    It should work as long as you get the 4C6P cord (4-conductor, 6-conductor ok too). The 2C6P (2-conductor) will power the V1 but not its accessories. If you got a 3-way from RS, be aware that they come in 2 versions: the version you probably want has all four conductors straight through. The other version that you probably DON'T want splits 4 into 2 and 2 by moving the conductor positions for 2-line phone service.
