Wurlitzer Wall Box

with Wireless transmitter

plugged in
Two tubes are visible, a 6X5 and 6V6. The signal is transmitted over the power lines to the receiver in the jukebox.

All you have to do is plug in the wall box in a power outlet in the same circuit as the jukebox and make your selections. In the past wall boxes were a great money maker. Most patrons made the same selections and the record was played only once..

A wall box was mounted near each table in many restaurants. Patrons made their selections while seated at their table. In a time that one play was 5C only, each could easily bring in 25C to 50C.

No wires!

Wireless Receiver

The red chassis is the stepper & wireless receiver, here built in a Wurlitzer 1100. The audio amplifier is visible above. Everything is covered with dust..

The sensitivity of the wireless receiver can be adjusted. While doing this a tuning eye can be inserted in the receiver. After all equipment is set up properly selections can be made from any place where a wireless wallbox is plugged in.

No more wiring needed!
