Music On Hold Wiring by jerryreeve
Posted: 25 Mar 04 (Edited 5 Feb 08)

this is assuming that you are going to put a CD player on your system for Music on hold.

to connect music on hold you will need to get a few things from radio shack.  

1  telephone jack                          PN 279-0420
1  1/8 in to lug converter cable       PN 420-2454
1  1/8 in stereo to mono adapter    PN 274-0882
1  RCA in to lug converter cable      PN 42-2449
1  RCA 1F2M sterio to mono adapter  PN 55024227
If your CD player has a different connector than 1/8 inch or RCA  then you will need a different adapter.

connect the lug jacks of the converter cable to the red and green screws of the phone jack.  connect two pieces of wire from the red and green screws of the phone jack to the MOH pair on the block MICS:Yl/Or CICS:Vi/Gn 3X8 6X16 8X24:Vi/Sl (see FAQ's on wiring for pinout)
Note the jack is only used as a point to connect the lugs to cross connect cable.

connect the jack end of the converter cable to the stereo/mono adapter

connect the stereo/mono adapter to the cd player.

turn on the cd player

call your office and have someone put you on hold

adjust the volume of the player.
