From 1986 or so until 1998, Konami used a standard set of wiring for all of its games. All of this wiring uses JST NH connectors and the pins are numbered as they are on the connector.

4 Pin Audio (Stereo)

Connect directly to speakers, or, turn cab and board down before connecting and connect to amplifier.

  • 1 - Right Speaker +
  • 2 - Right Speaker -
  • 3 - Left Speaker -

  • Hey I built one of these and I get Mono sound out of both channels!

Remember to flip dip switches on Konami GX and newer, or move the 4 pin jumper to "Stereo" on the PCB.
