KenLayton this has been a great informative thread.
The speaker I am posting is in dire need of replacement. I bought an 8 ohm replacement from Parts Express via the link you provided. I am still at a quandary about the 200Ω10%10W resistor(?) picture along side the volume control. I did a search and an exact match on ebay pretty cheap. I thought I was buying two, but bought two packages of 10. (sheesh)
I am not sure what this ceramic concoction does or if it has something to do with the volume control or reducing the impedence to the speaker. I'm pretty green at this and trying to figure out how this works from the soundboard in this 1979 Meteor pin. I also have a Paragon and Playboy I need to upgrade down the road.
I saw an earlier post about replacing a volume control knob, but I can seem to find it, or if it's the right one I need for these games. Thanks for you great insight and sharing your knowledge! Much appreciated!
