Just put some pyle speakers in the backbox. Huge sound improvement and the blue looks so sweet with the speaker lights

Looks good!

#7556 48 days ago

The blue speaker really looks good, and sooooo much better than stock.

#7557 48 days ago

Did you have to modified anything to install your new speaker?

#7558 48 days ago

Nope bolt right in. But, I have speaker lights and it raises it up about 1/4" .but easy to space with washers if you don't have the lights. Sounds so much better, much more bass. About a 5 minute install

Are these 5.25" or 4"? Do you have a link to the speakers? I was getting ready to buy the Stern LE speakers from Pinball Life for $40 per pair, but I'm interested in alternatives, especially if better quality.

I bought the kenwoods first, which is what is in the le games. Better than stock but not worth it. These sound very good and look great even without lights.

Topper bug issue? I installed my $1k topper last night (yeah, I'm embarrassed but wtf, there's a pandemic, that's my excuse) and it looked great on the machine, nice light show but disappointing "lack" of appearances by Elvira, who even set to 100% barely shows up. Anyhoo, it's cool when she does and hopefully they add more in later code.

But since then I've played a few games with no issues but then suddenly my score starting multiplying "on its own" like in big chunks in the middle of a game (I'm talking 10-20-50M in one shot) and even one time when I just started a game -- it automatically rolled the score up to around 450M before I even plunged. In fact, I believe it even plunged on its own.

All that to say, the game is acting wonky since I installed the topper. Anyone else run into this issue or may have an idea of what might be happening?

#7563 48 days ago

No issues with my topper, been on since I bought close to year ago. Enjoy the toppers ,I think they look great, have 4

Don’t think it has anything to do with the topper. Bet one of your ramp optos is misaligned.

As stated by someone else, this would most likely be a ramp opto issue. On my game I enlarged the holes on the left ramp and it's been good since.

You don’t have a $1k topper. You have a $100 topper that you paiiiid $1k for haha.

Quoted from ItsBwalt:

Does anyone know of any good distributors that still have a ehoh premium available for the next run? I’ve been looking but yet to find one

Try calling http://pinballs.com/
I have my order in with them

#7568 48 days ago

So will this be the final run?

That's now selling for more than msrp. Too bad you missed out

So you bought 4 to hold as an investment? Are Stern toppers the new Bitcoin?

#7571 48 days ago

Seems to be. I sold bksor topper for great profit and he has a buyer for more profit. They make about as much sense as bitcoin does to me. Plus, I like how they look. I didn't buy 4 at a time, one came with kiss, found a 1 of 1 for met, bought first ehoh at a bit below msrp, same with Zeppelin, if it ever shows

Ok, I thought you meant you bought 4 EHOH toppers. Sorry, I didn't get enough sleep last night .

I doubt it. If this allotment is basically sold out, they'll make more as long as demand is there.

I agree with the demand high they'll try to produce more machines in another run but does it come at a cost? Will they have to negotiate again for another run with all the involved parties and possibly another price bump in doing so? I truly don't know just thinking out loud here...

Stern titles typically licenses a title for three years. It would be surprising if this is the last run. Typically dealers get a “last call” for orders and to my knowledge this hasn’t happened for Elvira.

Added red eyes to my topper. Now worth $2000

#7577 48 days ago

Lol I’m good, sold the game for $2k more than I paid. Too easy of a shooter for me.

That is cool. How did you do the eyes? Are the hands part of the topper? I hadn't noticed those in pictures before.

#7580 48 days ago

Yeah, kind of like paying $200-$300 plus for a small Japanese Gappa figure to stick in your game.

#7581 48 days ago

A closer look and it appears it isn't the Stern topper. Did you make it yourself? Maybe you should start selling them. Given Stern is charging 1k, you could probably sell a lot at half or less.

No it is not the stern topper. I took some 3d printed gargoyels and creepy hands from thingiverse. Added leds and all working on 5v. Just a fun project and not even close to 1k. Still thinking about doing more, looking at the lighting effect triggered by the shaker. Want to add motion to the small spider.

I gotta say, that easily looks just as good as the stern one! What’s the tombstone looking thing in the middle ? I have those same gargoyles but this looks SO much nicer!

If you started selling them you'd have my business. I don't have the right tools to make something like that myself. Looks awesome.

Not really, considering the Gappa cost me $40...and then I sold it for $200. Anyway...maybe you’ll own an EHOH one day, until then

So you are publicly admitting here that you exaggerated and lied about it’s value to sell it? Cool.

#7587 47 days ago

Anyway... who has any good suggestions for getting the ball not to go SDTM rolling out of the pops! Besides jolting the machine hard mine is very consistent for doing this!

#7588 47 days ago

No, it’s worth $200-$300 and now you’re going on my ignore list.

The tombstone is from amazon, check tombstone halloween. It is foam and I have cut in in half. You even could get some zombie hands on amazon. The tombstone is about $12-$15. Only thing I did is paint is more black and added some yellow which gives a nice glowing effect when putting purple leds on it.

Sounds like a standard Halloween lawn tombstone? Really looks great, wow

I'm glad you posted this. I also bought the LE speakers and haven't been happy with them. I'll give these a go since you say it sounds way better.

#7594 47 days ago

Anyone know of any distributors with available Prems? I snoozed and my distributor sold his last one on Friday.

I replaced the rubber under the pops with the next highest up size. It made it a bit round coming out of the pops and while you still get some SDTMs, it's not quite as often. Be careful putting it on though, there's a metal guide there that likes to slice the rubber as you are putting it on.

If you bought the 'LE Speakers', did you change the speaker resistance setting as well? I can't imagine anyone not liking the LE speakers because I think they sound really good.

Yup i changed settings back and forth. The difference between them in weight of magnet is huge. Much better sound than the Kenwoods. Buy em on prime , free return if you don't like

Indeed, the Kenwood ones just don't sound right. Muffled and the songs aren't as clear. Changed the impedance, equalizer, everything. Just don't like it. These are in sale for $22 and free returns, so I'm only risking labor to try it.

Exactly and it's about 5 minutes labor. Do you have speaker lights? They look amazing, the way the blue speaker plays off the lights.
