Default 5 pin din to rca how to.

hello, i want to make my own 5 pin din to set of rca's that were used in the old school orion and ppi amps, here is the config of the 5 pin din. but i do not know where to connect to the rca's:

External 115VAC, 60 Hz line input, +/-12 VDC, 300 mA output power supply.
The 5-pin DIN output connector of the power supply provides:
Pin 1 COM
Pin 2 COM
Pin 3 5V (not used by xo/eq)
Pin 4 -12V/300mA
Pin 5 +12V/300mA

of course i was going to use the commons 1 and 2 per each rca outer jacket, but the pin 4, 5 do not if it should be on which side left or right or the rca's

i have couple pics but will not post.

Old PPI and Orion amps are:

1 -15 V
2 Gnd
3 +15 V
4 Right Audio
5 Left Audio

Pin order is 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 (to be consistant with 3 pin DIN)

Connect the common of left/right audio to the center pin of the DIN connector. The center conductor from the RCAs then connects to pins adjacent to the common. The outer 2 pins will be unused - make sure they don't touch the audio!
