* LEDs may be driven from +5VDC to the sink. Use at least a 100ohm resistor in series with the LED to limit current to 50mA or less for ultra-bright LEDs. For "normal" LEDs use a 220ohm or larger resistor to keep current under about 20mA. LED wiring diagram.

** A joystick may be used on the Player 1 inputs and a trakball may be used on the Player 2 inputs simultaneously. Single player games requiring a trakball will use the Player 2 inputs for the primary trakball controller. Single player joystick games will use the Player 1 inputs. Single player upright cabinets with only trackball games require the trakball be connected to the Player 1 joystick inputs.

*** The cabinet speaker should be directly connected to the Speaker (+) and Speaker (-) signals on the JAMMA harness. Do NOT connect one side of the speaker to ground as damage may result. Such damage is not covered under the warranty. Speakers in the range of 4-8 ohms are preferred.

**** The JAMMA 'test' switch duplicates the function of the 'test' switch on the game board. For ease of maintenance adjustments it is highly recommended to equip your game cabinet with a test switch easily accessable from the front of the cabinet if one is not already present.
