The Wurlitzer 625t is a very well designed organ overall and the tone is spectacular. I have owned and played mine for several months now and it seems to be a versatile organ for many styles. The keys are the fastest known to man. This helps make up for the fact that this theater organ has no theater tabs! The 950 had tabs, and I've heard about the 630t and wonder if maybe it had theater tabs?
For playing theater styles it has the 16',8',4',2',and 1' TIBIA 'ranks' (tabs) directly attached through the separate amplifier to the two speed internal Leslie. It's very easy to get the low 16' plus 1' high pitch skating rink tones associated only with external Leslie cabinets with horns. The DIAPSON ranks are necessary when playing church music and filling out the sound in theater style music. There are 16', 8', 4', and 2' Diapson tabs. Other upper manual tabs include Clarinet, trumpet, strings, wah, 4 different key percussion including Harp, Piano, Hawaiian guitar- there is also a slide control for repeat percussion on these tabs. Hawaiian guitar playing can be further accentuated by the lever on the volume pedal that lowers the upper and lower manuals by 1/2 step in pitch.
WATCH VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE FOR THE 625t just put Wurlitzer 625t in the search bar. Jimmy Smith UK ( not the famous American B3 player) played the 625t ( exactly like your BTW) on a record and it's got 4 songs on youtube with pics of the organ. I wrote to Jimmy recently and he responded saying it was a very fun and satisfying organ to tour with. He played it 100% stock through an external Leslie cabinet. There is no multi-plug outlet on the organ, but there is an adapter to the internal Leslie which is simple to hook a multi-pin standard female socket to.

I would be happy to explain what I know about this organ. I've had mine for several months and couldn't be happier. One thing I did to really improve the tone going to the internal Leslie speaker was to get rid of the limiting resistors that are connected to the outside of the RCA plug on the amplifier. ( the amp is located on the inner wall of the right side of the organ). There are two RCA plugs e large aluminum finned power amp input jacks going into this amp. One is for the Tibia 'ranks' (tabs) to the power amp for the Leslie and the other is for the Drums and Bass pedals to the super heavy duty 12 inch speaker. There are also two 6"x9" speakers in this organ. Of the two RCA plugs,the plug closest to the back of the organ is the one for the Leslie. I disconnected the two resistors that are soldered together- one end going the RCA plug's outer sleeve and the other end down to the circuit board. This really opens up the tone of the Tibias. It restores the full frequency range of the Leslie. I honestly have no reason why they put these resistors here, it's not like it is limiting the output to save the speaker or anything. There is also a resistor pair in series going to the other RCA plug's sleeve and down to the circuit board as well. This might or might not have a limiting effect on the bass and drum sounds, but I never unhooked it to see because these sounds are excellent even with the resistors.
Although the power amp is no where near the fragile parts of the organ which can be harmed by static read the warning below.
WARNING!! NEVER TOUCH THE LONG MULTI-PIN IC's OR ANY OTHER CIRCUIT GOING TO THEM UNLESS YOU ARE GROUNDED TO THE ORGAN CHASSIS. SIMPLY TOUCH A METAL SURFACE ON THE ORGAN first.
WHEN TRANSPORTING ORGAN IT IS POSSIBLE TO LIGHTEN THE ORGAN BY ABOUT 100 POUNDS BY REMOVING ORGAN BACK COVER, TOP MUSIC HOLDER, ORGAN TOP ( UNPLUG THE LIGHT CONNECTION ON THE RIGHT SIDE) DISCONNECT ALL OF THE THE CONNECTOR PLUGS ON THE LEFT SIDE, REMOVE THE TWO PIVOT PINS WHICH CONNECT THE UPPER ROW OF SWITCHES AND THE CHASSIS WHICH HOLDS THEM. YOU CAN ALSO REMOVE THE POWER AMP IF YOU REMOVE THE THREE NUTS ALONG THE BACK AND THE PLUGS ON TOP AND THE TWO RCA PLUGS. GET A 'WIRE LABELING KIT' FROM RADIO-SHACK.
