  • What is this receptacle for in my Allen 301?

    I just noticed this 6 prong receptacle attached to a transformer in the back of my Allen 301. Can anyone tell me what can be plugged into it? It looks like the speakers connections I had on my old Allen C-1 that went to the Gyro's...

    Thanks!!

    It may be for a external set of chimes.

      I concur---it looks like the transformer for a set of chimes.

        I agree with Pipeorganbuilder (& toodles whose reply was posted as I was writing this). The 301 in my garage has no such transformer, but the transformer case is very similar to the one that I have installed for the chimes at church.

            Is there a multi-position switch for chimes volume on the console? The pins of the connector are for various voltages sent to the chimes solenoids for different volume levels.

              No. The transformer is disconnected. Perhaps it was used in the past.
