Quoted from KingBW:
Check out the flipper fidelity options for the speakers that have the same mounting pattern. You can order them with a lower profile if you eventually want to get a speaker light kit. That's the route I'm going on the next credit card billing cycle.
When ordering SPIKE & SPIKE 2 speakers directly from Flipper Fidelity you are given the option to choose "I do not have SpeakerLights" or "Yes, I have SpeakerLights". What that determines is if the speakers come with spacer rings attached to the front of them or not. These spacer rings are there to allow space at the front of the speaker so the protruding tweeters do not come in contact with the mounting surface when the speakers are mounted.
So if you choose "I do not have SpeakerLights" you will get the speakers with the spacers attached to the front of them. If you choose "Yes, I have SpeakerLights" you will get the speakers that do not have the spacer rings. The catch is....if you say "Yes, I do have SpeakerLights" you really do need to have the speaker lights....not later, but when you install the speakers. If you say you have the speaker lights, but you do not....you won't be able to properly mount the ringless speakers at all.
If you are talking about SPIKE 2 games and upgraded speakers (that have protruding tweeters) and Speaker Light Kits...you will also have to remove the metal bars from the holes in the factory speaker plates (which can be cut out with a dremel or powered through with some side cutters).....or you can buy a set of my "SPIKE 2 replacement speaker plates for Speaker Light Kits". This is a set of replacement speaker plates that have the bars removed from the speaker holes, It also makes it so the speaker holes can be centered in the honeycomb area. As well as providing 4 mounting points for each speaker instead of the factory 2. It comes in the same flat textured black material as the original factory plates and they should be posted on my website for sale in the next few weeks. These replacement speaker plates can only be used in conjunction with my SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits.
More info on using upgraded speakers with my SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits can be found on my website here:
