Looks great congratulations!! Make sure that code is up to date and have a Bat-tastic weekend!

Thanks you too. Shopping at your store right now for some mods

Finally got my BM66 LE home. Drove 12 hours round trip to get it. I didn't want it bouncing around in a truck. Thanks go out to Steve at MI Pinball Refinery for helping with this deal and helping me load it up. Will definitely get some powder coating work done by him. Anyway, here are some pics and I'm glad to be officially part of the club!

Welcome to the club. You got the same card I did. I think it's one of the best cards to get since it has Batman and Robin in action and the caption "Let's Go !" sums up how I feel whenever I start a game.

Thanks for the welcome doc. It's cool you got Robin's autograph on your card. I need to grab one of your bat signal projectors to complete the package. That will have to wait a few weeks but it's at the top of my list

I'm thinking of adding a subwoofer to my premium. Does it make much of an improvement? Any tips on the best way to hook one up or what sub to use? I was just planning on alligator clipping from the cab speaker to the sub, however I've been told that doing it this way would just be getting the amplified signal and that I'd be better off getting the signal direct from the source. Thanks.

You should seriously consider checking out pinwoofer.com (pinwoofer). It's so much better than wiring up an external sub woofer. I've installed them on 3 of my pins and they ROCK!

I prefer an external sub.
I used the following.
https://pinnovators.myshopify.com/products/pinsub-spike-spike2-stern-kit
Then bought one of these to plug into that adaptor and mounted it through one of the holes on the adjacent grill.

Thanks for the response. I would love to get these but I wasn't looking to spend this much. With the conversion it'll cost AU$360 without shipping.

#15609 4 months ago

Thanks! I'll look into this.

Agreed!, I use Polk PSW 10 and they have more then enough oomph to deliver a great bass drive. Pretty reasonable too, they can be had for about 79.00 on sale.

Anyone know where I can get a Stern instruction card from? Mines in Spanish!

#15617 3 months ago

pinwoofer kicks ass again. I installed the superkit and this baby is like a new machine. The voices are so crisp. It's my 3rd kit and never disappointed.

Dan you are awesome. So patient on the phone talking me thru a few steps. Silly errors on my part.

I trashed the subwoofer and didnt feel like going to get it. Look at the trash speakers that come installed...sad.

Thanks again.

That’s pretty sweet. Thanks for showing

#15621 3 months ago
Quoted from bicyclenut:

I will show you more pics after I clean up the wiring.....the amp next to sub looks clean and cool....last time I mounted amp to side cabinet....this time to base and like it better....more space..

The back AMP is now on the monitor versus mounted to the back panel...also looks better. Little magnets are cool.

Going to do a quick video of the sound, will post it today...

I did the same system on ACDC and JP. You should hear when TESS roars...my dogs howl. HAHA.

Are you thinking of getting the system??

Have a great day.

I've already changed out the speakers on my B66 and have a external sub hooked up. Im pretty happy with the sound. However, Im thinking if upgrading my Metallica. Ive changed out the speakers and have a sub on my MET, but its still lacking on the mids and highs power. I looked into pinwoofer last year but held off. Now im thinking of pulling the trigger.

The AMPS are the answer. The wiring to power them both is well made and easy to connect.....2 inserts . I am a newbie and did it. All plug, push and go.

I know someone who has it in all his music themes....its like a rock concert....anyways....I am happy.

Now when will hallmark release penguin....its my last piece to complete my villians...HAHAH.

Ball stuck many times behind left ramp...what do you guys suggest to place in that spot so ball cant get stuck? Happens always on a good game..lol.

I was thinking a little rubber dimple with easy off sticker on back.

Thanks for the help.

Only reason I could see it getting stuck under the left ramp would be the zip tied cable placement which many have already documented how to move in this thread. Never seen a ball hang up hear for any other reason personally.

If anyone has a Joker or Catwoman figure from ModFather they are looking to sell, please PM me. I'm looking to buy one of each. Thanks!

My batcopter mod the boards I used to activate it was a relay several people don't like the clicking. Figured out another board no noise or clicking. Fixed for replacement of old board. On batcopter. 20.00 shipped in US. Pretty much at cost plus shipping. Will do a market place add. Pm if interested

These are Hallmark ornaments. 2016 I believe? They are on EBay all the time you just have to keep an eye out for an unboxed one to buy them cheap. Good luck.

My local distributor just told me there were only 200 Catwoman editions made and all had signed cards. After about 30 mins of googling and searching forums, I haven't been able to confirm this. Can anyone here confirm? Thanks!

#15641 3 months ago

I heard it was 200 with first 100 signed

#15642 3 months ago

Catwoman is the best edition cabinet wise and shoots better imo. It seems they quietly tuned in the areas that needed it and made other mechs more reliable. They learned lots from the first editions. Heard that at least 100 were made. Bat66 is a fabulous machine! Never get tired of playing it, with so much variety in the software. Lyman coded games are superior indeed!

#15643 3 months ago

The info I got was only the first 100 were to have Julie Newmar signature cards, but production never went any further than those first 100, so they all have signature cards. No matter what the truth is, they did not make many Catwoman editions.

#15644 3 months ago

Anyone finding the crane shot too hard to make it register, sometimes I hit it straight on and unless it is super hard it won’t register.
Thanks

I had the same problem. Took it apart and cleaned it by spraying a little penetrating oil on some fine steel wool. Wipe it off and reassemble. Worked much better.

Hallmark is doing more Batman66 ornaments this year. They will have a 66 Batmobile with Batman and Robin figures. Its listed as 4.2" long so too big for the spinning platform but just right for going over the shooter lane. I like the Robin pose where he's holding onto the glass bubble just like he did in the show.

They will also be doing a Penguin figure. Would be great if he could be put into the crane cockpit instead of the flat plastic thats there now but that might take some creative surgery.

Great idea as that's the one part of my PIN I would have thought some mod genius would have done. I replaced the cat plastics with biglaw mod all lit up. I bought the bat boat but it's going to go bye bye for the batmobile .I have the crazy limited edition Penguin batmobile and Jokers cool crazy vehicle by the shooter lane on eaglemoss's bracket.

I could chop off his head pretty easy and then you have to take over...HAHA.

Maybe we can join forces and work on it together since I have all kinds of time now. This virus has impacted both my businesses.
