HI guys new member here. Just took on a new project, a Seeburg HSC 3. Just got it loaded into the basement and was getting ready to plug it in but I found the terminals loose on the speaker connection, upon looking it over I just don't think this was wired right. The connection is in parallel so the speakers can't be playing in stereo. The connections are not obvious, not exaxtly well marked and I haven't been able to find an online manual. Don't want to fry it right off the bat so I thought I would check with you guys...

Anyone here know what this should look like?

Hi Geno. I always wanted one of those when I was a kid. I pulled out the manual, but it doesn't show the speaker wiring. From what I know of Seeburg, I would move the black wire from rem (remote) to com (common) and leave the white wires on console. The 2 com terminals are both chassis ground. The 2 fuses below are for the output right before the speaker selector switch. I strongly recommend the manual from Victory Glass. $55 is a lot, but these are complicated. I would not do much without replacing the electrolytic capacitors. Also, look at the plastic wheels in the stepper of the consolidated control center. The white ones sometimes decomposed. Good luck on a cool find. Bill Carr.

Each side is left or right, with a terminal and a common. The term common refers to if you were adding external speakers. It is not a common between left and right

Looks like both speaker channels are connected to one amp. Possibly done because the amplifier for one channel is not working?

Thanks for the info guys, I figured this was the case. Got it wired up right, appears the unit does have some issues but is ripe for a restoration. Ordering a manual from Victory Glass, thanks Carr. When I first Googled this a dealer in Denmark showed up, Victory is a bit closer...
