Quote from: Stormcrash on February 09, 2024, 03:30:44 PMI seem to remember that these AE ringers have a center tap on the coil, but I can't remember why other than reducing ringing power for certain circuits. The capacitor is because AE didn't put the ring capacitor inside the network like Western Electric did, it was mounted on the ringer in older models to allow different capacitors for different frequency ringer configurations. You should just be able to hook this up across tip and ring with the capacitor in circuit.
