I thought I would take a few minutes to create this post to provide a quick guide information on how to make your Pro and Premium machines sound and look better than an LE.
The easiest way and cheapest way to do this is to purchase two kits at Flipper Fidelity and Speakerlightkit.
Here's what you'll need:
1) http://www.speakerlightkits.com/Type-13.html ($75)
You also need 2 x 545-1046-02 - hard plastic red trim piece that goes around each new speaker which Doug sells as well. (not on his website or you can get them at pinballlife.com ($23)
2) https://flipperfidelity.com/ ----- FF-SPK2-LE for the 8” at $199.95 and FF-SPK2-10-LE for the 10” at $219.95. The flipper Fidelity kit includes 2 x 515-1941-00 - Stern 5 1/4 speaker plate with threaded posts spaced for larger speakers and new wiring so the install is completely plug and play.
As of right now, Mike doesn't have these part# listed on his site but you can contact him directly as he has them in stock.
In order for your Pro/Prem to accommodate 5 1/4" speakers you needed remove the existing, felt screen and 4 inch metal speaker bracket ass seen in the first two pics. The speaker plate on the left is the 4 inch and the one on the right is the 5 1/4inch Stern.
Next Install the new 5 1/4 inch speaker plate, then put the red acrylic metal surround plate, then the Type 13 Deluxe speaker Led, and finally the Flipper Fidelity speaker. I am not going to post pictures of the Sub woofer install as its the same as any other Flipper fidelity install.
The Flipper Fidelity speaker barley fits due to its deeper design than JBL or Kenwood that normally come in the LE's.
The result is a system that sound and looks better than the LE OEM setup.

Also, for those looking for more power to drive this new setup:
Mike over at Flipper Fidelity is also working on a AMP that is matched to this setup which will really allow you to crank this system up.
