Installation video for Stern metal paneled games. You can get a good look at the quality of our 3rd generation boards in this video:

Lighted Speaker Panels for wood paneled games installation is similar, but different. We will have an installation video for wood games.

Lighted Speaker Panels for Stern Metal DMD boards that will be ready for September:
AC/DC Luci
AC/DC Premium
The Walking Dead
Ghostbusters – original
Ghostbuster new design
Game of Thrones
Iron Man
Star Trek is a slightly different panel and we hope to have it ready within 6 weeks.

Lighted Speaker Panels for Stern Wood DMD boards that will be available within 4 weeks:
AC/DC Luci
AC/DC Premium
Iron Man
Lord of the Rings
The Simpsons Pinball Party
Pirates if the Caribbean

We plan on doing artwork for 75% of all Stern games with wood panels.

We are working on prototypes for WPC95 games and expect to have these done in the next 60 days:
Medieval Madness
Scared Stiff

All of these panels will come with a power tap from your games 12v power supply. That power tap will have a 5.5mm x 2.1mm plug that will plug into an included LED Controlled with remote. One wire will run to the panel from the Lighted Speaker Panel. Different styles of panels with have different mount systems, but all the mount brackets will be factory made. Mounting bolts for original speakers and DMD as well as bolts for aftermarket light kits and color DMD’s will be included. Original artwork will be installed on the board.

All of our panels are designed to work with ColorDMD products, ColorDMD fits very nicely on our Lighted Speaker Panels for metal Stern games with no gap between Lighted Speaker Panel and COLORDMD.

At full brightness power consumption is .85 amps @ 12 volts, roughly 1/10 amp at 110 volts. These new panels are very bright, and we feel that these look better at one of the lower brightness levels, which power consumption is closer to .45 amps @ 12 volts. Stern LCD Lighted Speaker Panels will have a slightly larger power consumption.

If you are interested in one of our Lighted Speaker Panels, please PM us. Stern metal and wood panels will be $199.99 plus S&H. We will post the artwork when a panel is ready to order. All orders will be first come, first served.

All mods are hand made and have a slight variation, because of this, a very small area of the panel may have a slight texture.
Some of the below pictures:

1. Metallica game has a Lighted Speaker Panel installed. The Lighted Speaker Panel that is being held is for a wood paneled Stern.
2. Accessory pack for metal Lighted Speaker Panel. We supply twice as many mounting screws as needed, because there is a set of screws for stock installation, and a set of screws for Lighted Speaker Kits and COLORDMD. Lighted Speaker Kit and COLORDMD NOT INCLUDED.
3. Back of Lighted Speaker Panel. Lighted speaker panels are painted in flat black. Back of panels will have small casting lines that are cosmetic and DO NOT effect functionality of the board. All screw holes are tapped with 3/8” of depth in threads, #6 screws.
4. Picture of board in mold. Front of board is as smooth as glass, this is the finished surface. Your Lighted Speaker Panel will come with graphic attached, and you will not see this. We use a very high end resin for a superior quality product. Each panel uses 40 ounces of resin.
5. Back of Lighted Speaker Panel for metal Metallica with a color DMD attached to show how a COLORDMD fits.
6. Picture of Lighted Speaker Panel installed in Metallica with Lighted Speaker Panel off.
7. Lighted Speaker Panel at full brightness. This is brighter then I would recommend having the panel, but it demonstrates the brightness of the LED’s. We feel LED’s are the best option for lighting a item like this, because it gives full color control and full color control. If you are getting a panel for a game that has incandescent lights, the LED’s can be adjusted to a warn white.
8. Few colors of Lighted Speaker Panel installed with LED’s set to a variety of colors.

If you have suggestions for artwork you would like to see for any DMD game that has no artwork, or Stern’s LCD games, please suggest it here.

Nice booth at Texas Pinball Festival. Loved what I saw. Ordered a dozen. Ka-ching! Took a month - which was expected, and communicated up front. Not a big deal.

However, it didn't work out.

  • Stern ones are too big. Either just enough to stop us from locking the back glass in place, or so big we can't even put the back glass in. Not much, but enough.
  • WPC95 panels don't match at all. The games have hinge points. The panels were built for hanging instead of hinging.

We've been trying to make contact with the company; and the only contact we've had is with the secretary since May 4th. The response on the 7th was "We have to wait for Chuck". May 17: "Dan's been sick". May 28: "Forwarding to Chuck." June 13th, no response.

Mistakes happen - I'd expect people to communicate, and make things right. So far, neither's been happening, from *either* of the owners of litedpinballmods .

"F" for fit.
"F" for support.
"A" for the secretary though.

At this point it's a complete write off.

Fuck it.

As a matter of fairness I'll report that Dan is now engaged, with a promise to take care of us.
