Game Specific Information

"Gotchas" for various games.

Cirqus Voltaire
This game has an unusual configuration with the speakers mounted directly to the "light tub" behind the back glass. I would recommend using a 3-1/2 inch speaker with an adapter plate when replacing the back box speakers on this game; that information is included in the section covering games with a plastic display panel. Trying to modify the light tub to accommodate a larger speaker is very risky, and is not recommended.

The Ring Master assembly protrudes quite a distance below the playfield, and may impact a replacement cabinet speaker when the playfield is slid in to or out of the cabinet. Check the vertical clearance carefully!

Creature from the Black Lagoon
This game has an unusual mounting location for the cabinet speaker because of the hologram projection lamp; this precludes use of a larger speaker. You'll need to use a 6-1/2 inch woofer in this game.

Dr. Dude
Nearly all Dr. Dude games are based on the System 11 sound board; this guide is not applicable to this game. (A limited number of Dr. Dude games were WPC-based; those games could be upgraded using the information in this guide.)

Funhouse
Early production Funhouse games use the System 11 sound board; this guide is not applicable to these games with the System 11 sound board.

Hurricane
Some Hurricane games may have an unusual wiring of the cabinet speaker; see the WPC sound system information section for specifics. When removing the display panel from this game you will have to cut the black-yellow wire connected to P505 pin 2 (which connects to the cabinet speaker).

Medieval Madness
This game has limited vertical clearance above the cabinet speaker; the total clearance is approximately 3-3/4 inches between the top of the mounting block and the bottom of the right troll carriage assembly. You'll need to use a woofer with a mounting depth of less than 3-1/2 inch in this machine when using a 1/2 inch mounting block (either the original or a replacement). Mounting the woofer directly to the cabinet bottom panel will give you another 1/2 inch of vertical clearance.

Terminator 2
Some Terminator 2 games may have an unusual wiring of the cabinet speaker; see the WPC sound system information section for specifics. When removing the display panel from this game you will have to cut the black-yellow wire connected to P505 pin 2 (which connects to the cabinet speaker).
