The following machines equipped with a SPIKE2 system have only 6 pins on their CN5 connector:
On these machines, there was no dedicated subwoofer output.
Please connect your connector like on the following picture.
Important note: only the “Stereo Line-out” connector can be used (even for connecting an external subwoofer).
Both Line-out & Subwoofer connectors need a STEREO cable.
Make sure your cable is a stereo one, as it won’t work with a MONO cable.
This connector is not compatible with Stern SPIKE 1 machines.
If you connect an external device (such as an external audio sound board or an external amplifier), to avoid any ground noise, you can plug a “ground loop noise isolator“.
You will need a 3.5mm stereo to RCA cable in order to connect your subwoofer. Depending on your subwoofer input (mono or stereo), you should connect your cable as shown below:
For mono input subwoofer: plug 3.5mm stereo-to-RCA cable into the Stereo Subwoofer female cable, and plug only one of the RCA end to your subwoofer mono input.
For stereo input subwoofer: plug 3.5mm stereo-to-RCA cable into the Stereo Subwoofer female cable, and plug the RCA end to your subwoofer stereo input.
Warning: Always use line level input, never use high level input.
