I use the original Vent 1 with my XK5.
The audio signal on the 11pin is always the dry organ sound without the internal Leslie s´sim (not the same as on the XK3c).
You don't need to send power to the XK5 11pin socket.
With this configuration you are also able to compare the internal sim (still on the line out L/R) and the Vent.
IMHO the Vent is still better than the internal sim (but of Course Hammond will tell you different... ;-) )
Hope that helps.
