WALLBOX USING EXTERNAL COMPUTER SPEAKERS
These coin operated table top wallboxes have been around since the 1930's. Companies like Seeburg, Wurlitzer, Rockola and AMI made hundreds of thousands of these remote music selectors. They were originally placed on counter tops and diner booths. These were really just remote selectors that allowed the Jukebox across the room to select the record. These wallboxes were wired all the way back to the Jukebox across the room to make that happen. While you were sitting at your booth waiting for your food, you could put a quarter in and select some music while you waited. Like anything else, as time moves on, things change. Today there are very few 45rpm jukeboxes in public operation anymore. There was no use for these wallboxes anymore, their time was over. There was no way for them to make the Jukebox operator any money. Many were destroyed, melted down, thrown away or stored away in warehouses. Many of these wallboxes sat for decades without being powered up. Some of these wallboxes have been popular for many decades as decorations or to use as a way to keep phone numbers as a sort of personal phone book display. Recently a few companies have developed products that could convert the analog signal coming out of the wallbox and have it talk to a portable mp3 player. This was now a chance for these wallboxes to have a 2nd life and be re-used as a sort of portable miniature Jukebox. One small problem was you needed someone to get inside these wallboxes and service all the components so they were safe and clean and tested. The other obstacle was knowing how MP3 music files worked, how to use Apple iTunes and get your music into it. The methods of getting music into iTunes were to use your own music CD's or use MP3 files that you already had on your computer hard drive. The other method of getting music into your iTunes account is to down load it from the iTunes store. The next step was you needed to know how to make a play list and transfer that playlist to a portable iPod. Other skills required to get this wallbox working correctly would be to wire up the wallbox with a purchased power supply and a in-line fuse for safety. Other skills that were needed was a way to make professional looking song title strips and have all your music play at near the same volume level. You will need to know how to adjusting your music files volume level inside of iTunes. This is important because it allows you to not have to constantly adjust the play volume on what ever speaker system your using when you play your wallbox.
