Sound Voltex Resources

It is undenyable that the SOUND VOLTEX series has grown in popularity throughout the years. As such, many players, maintainers, and other users have been making many contributious to the community, such as guides, messaging platforms, and even their own games simulating the SOUND VOLTEX gameplay experience along with custom charts. Through the years, many resources have accumulated in various places. As such, this webpage is an accumulation of those resources created by the community, official resources, and a parts list for controllers. This web page contains everything SOUND VOLTEX.

This webpage may not always be up to date with the newest resources available. An effort is made to update it somewhat regularly, however. The author is open to suggestions for inclusions.

The #faq-guides channel in the SDVX Community Discord Server contains resources and useful information as well, such as guides on setting up SOUND VOLTEX EXCEED GEAR 銈炽儕銈广儐, a Buyers guide for controllers, Useful links, and other recommendations. It is therefore advised to read this as well since it can not be hot-linked from this webpage. However, an effort was made to collect publically available resources mentioned there.

Parts

Arcade Spec Parts Japanese & American Cabinets

The control parts used by the arcade cabinets in Japan and America are listed below. Other regions (may) use other configurations. This is only really useful for cabinet owners, users who want to create an exact replica controller, or for use as a reference. See section Controller Parts for general home arcade style controller parts.

Buttons, Microswitches & Springs

The Sanwa buttons listed below come with an Sanwa OBSA-SP 100g spring, an Sanwa OBSA-LHS1F-LN integrated lamp & switch holder housing a V-11-3D4-SD 100g microswitch, and a Sanwa SWA-LED-#-12V LED [1, 2, 3, 10, 12]. The LEDs operate at 12V in the arcade cabinets [Citation Needed]. The switch can not be replaced with these lamp holders.

See This table for a description of the button product codes [1, 2, 3].

Figure 1: Button schematics from Tops Game [1, 2, 3].

Knob Assembly

See Sound Voltex Volume Assembly on gamerepair.info for a detailed breakdown of the volume assembly, and maintenance tips. Information below is taken from this webpage. Epi recorded footage of the knob reassembly, which can be found here.

Figure 2: Knob assembly schematic from Gamerepair.info [5].

Arcade Spec Parts Korean Cabinets

In Korea, Uniana is responsible for launching SOUND VOLTEX cabinets [13, 14]. A different button configuration is used in cabinets in Korea [Citation Needed].

Controller Parts

The parts as listed below could be used with most (diy) controllers.

Buttons

The Sanwa buttons listed below are analogous to arcade spec. These buttons ship with the old lamp holder type. This is more convenient for home use since the microswitch can be replaced easily, and the Sanwa OBSA-LHS1F-LN switch wiring is less convenient for home controller use. They can ship with an Sanwa OBSA-SP 100g spring, an MS-O-3 (Omron V-10-1A4) 100g microswitch, and either a LED, or a Wedge Bulb Lamp (See Rakuten & Tops Game product pages). One can choose to buy the button only, without a switch or lamp as well.

Of course, the Sanwa OBSA-LHS1F-LN switch could still be used with Sanwa buttons if wired properly. This listing on Blue Spring Express includes wires such that the switches can be used with Gamo2 and Yuancon controllers. It goes without saying that this switch is only compatible with Sanwa buttons.

See This table for a description of the button product codes [1, 2, 3].

The list below also includes other buttons, as Sanwa buttons can be rather expensive to obtain.

Microswitches

Always check the datasheets if supplied for the details and operating forces. Some switches have different terminal types which may be useful to some users. Certain users have documented their experiences with, and opinions about, some of these switches, which can be found here. It may be useful to consult this article when choosing a switch. There are more stores which sell these switches which may not be listed here. As such it is recommended to perform research.

The Sanwa OBSA-LHS1F-LN switch used in Valkyrie cabinets could still be used with Sanwa buttons if wired properly. This listing on Blue Spring Express includes wires such that the switches can be used with Gamo2 and Yuancon controllers. It goes without saying that this switch is only compatible with Sanwa buttons.
