Looking for help wiring speed control in a Leslie. Picked up a Leslie Orpheus 25. It’s a really basic Leslie and seemed perfect to turn into a guitar speaker. It has no amp so I just ran the speaker to a 1/4 inch jack making it an extension cab with a rotary speaker. Next I ran ac power to the motor through the control box which contain the relay and brake coil. Worked perfect. The exterior was a bit beat up so I decided to cut off the top foot or so of empty space. The now compact cab is much lighter and still sounds fantastic. The only draw back. It’s a single speed motor. So only fast speed. I’ve got a two speed motor on it’s way, but I’m a little unsure how to wire it in. Leslie seems to use relays for all the motors and I’m a little unsure why. The motors run 120ac. Why not just use a switch to go from the fast motor to slow? The idea of a foot switch comes to mind. I have a switch that would work perfect it’s rated at 3A at 120 volt. I’ve read the motors run just under 1A. That seems like it would work. The relay in mine seems to be using 120 Ac to switch the relay to allow 120 to the motor. This seems to make it unnecessary. Or does this have more to do with keeping high amps off the switch and longer wires? I’m sure I could rewire the relay to switch in between slow and fast motor, but I’m trying to understand what the point would be. As well it’s easy enough to get an on off switch but I’ve never heard of anyone running ac volts through a foot switch. Is this a foolish and dangerous thing to do? I suppose I could just plug it into a power bar and turn the power off that way and put the speed switch on the speaker cab. I would never really be changing speeds mid song. anyone have any experience wiring Leslie speed controls that could offer any advice?
