A few of us picked this up but realized there was an additional transformer setup in the chain. Currently we do not know how this is supposed to be hooked up. When you made this board, did you have a look at the other needed components and how they connect to the cabinet?

This headphone PCB is just a replacement PCB of the original. A few people asked me about doing one for the transformer board but I don't have one in front of me to replicate, I've only seen a picture in a manual or whatever.

In the Aero Table there is a connector for it. It's different for the Aero City.
Don’t get it twisted. There’s a connector in the aero city as well.

IRT missing board in between. ( 839-0244 )

that board is not covered in the swing manual

that board is covered in the aero city manual though.

so. my aero does have the headphone board, but bot the amp, I was told by the seller that it's not needed. worked fine without it. the aero wiring direct connects into it. I'll have to try it out.
if you test it out and it ends up working , let us know. take pictures of it and how it's wired up.

I don't have the headphone board or the transformer, however, on an Aero City I do have the harness from the bottom of the cab up to the control panel.

On the bottom of the cab, it's a male 3-pin Mate 'n Lok connector with male pins. On the control panel side it's a 3-pin JST NH connector.

Pinout is the same on both ends:

pin 1 - GND
pin 2 - SPK+ (jamma pin 10)
pin 3 - SPK+ (jamma pin 10)

As the speakers are wired in series, both pin 2 and 3 will show continuity with SPK- too.

Some things to consider, 1) the headphone harness is wired in parallel with the speakers, and 2) the audio coming from the harness is, of course, amplified. What does the underside of the headphone board look like?

Isn't that thing just the dummy cover that you take off when you install the board?
