So I have a KI2 cabinet I bought back in like 2002 that is in pretty damn good shape. The past 7 years it’s literally just been sitting in my garage. My monitor does however have an issue with it that just happened out of nowhere like 5 years ago while I wasn’t around and it was on. It is a bit dimmer than it should be.
However, I’ve recently thought about moving it into my basement and making it a mame cabinet with a pi2jamma connector. One of the problems is going to be getting it into my basement because it’s so damn heavy. Here are where my questions come in…
Anyone know how much an arcade monitor weighs? I am thinking about taking the monitor out in order to make maneuvering it into my house easier, if it’s significant. I don’t know the exact weight of the cabinet, but according to the arcade flyer, Killer Instinct 1 cabinet is 400lbs and I’d guess the KI2 one is pretty much identical.
Anyone know where to buy replacement arcade monitors in case I end up not being able to figure out what is wrong, and I want to completely replace it?
I tried googling both of these and just didn’t have much luck finding anything.
Here is the flyer for KI and this is where I got the weight from.
