    nice Chris...

    #5152 9 days ago

    I’m feeling crafty today

    Stranger Things got the speaker light kit upgrade with the 5.25 speakers and kit.
    Sounds good too. I can’t say objectively it’s better sounding, but it does seem nice.

    Looks awesome ...where did u get ur kit?

    #5154 9 days ago

    Speaker light kits .com

    #5155 9 days ago

    Looking good. Those lights are the best!

    #5156 8 days ago

    I visited the Pinball Portal in Marietta, Georgia today. Pretty cool place with reasonable prices. About 50 machines.

    That’s great. I’m tempted to start upgrading sound in some of my machines again. I’m considering getting this for GNR LE for whenever it comes in:

    What do you guys think? Worth it?

    #5158 8 days ago

    Something like that is on my list, I just need to commit.

    I don’t know much about it. Aaron says a powered sub, at the least, sounds much better.

    Like a standard external sub? Any specific size or brand recommendation?

    We connected one my Tron last weekend and it’s almost like a new game, huge improvement with the external sub.

    I would not spend that kind of money for better sound. You can upgrade most games with a Flipper Fidelity kit and then and external sub for far less money. Often you can catch the sub on sale for $79 if you time it right.

    #5161 8 days ago

    If I recall correctly, Mudflaps set up a rig that allowed a few games to be connected to the same sub.

    Kyle can you share that here? I don’t remember the names.

    It’s called the Pinsmx Passive Subwoofer Mixer. I have a pinnovators board for each of my games and they connect to an external board which lets you individually set subwoofer volumes for each of four subs. Highly recommended.

    https://pinnovators.myshopify.com/products/pinsmx-passive-subwoofer-mixer

    I also purchased a $150 backbox amplifier to test the waters. Not recommended unless you play you games at ridiculous volumes. I get complaints about normal volumes, so I play my games a little lower than normal.

    Since we were mentioned! If you want your GNR to sound absolutely epic, add the PinWoofer system. Also, I can't overstate the importance of what our system does to the backbox and the overall sound of the pin. Here is what others have said:

    For SAM system machines, I highly recommend the PIN PAC 2 SAM MAC from Pinnovators.
    They have other systems for different type machines as well.
    The system includes a headphone jack on the front with volume control and separate volume control buttons for the machine.
    Also includes a sub woofer output in the back box on a circuit card there.
    I also purchased the optional audio cable to use with my self powered sub woofer.
    See attached.

    I won't lie, that system looks really cool.

    #5166 7 days ago

    I will vouch for Pinwoofer's stuff....it's legit! I will be ordering a setup for my tron soon as well as likely upgrading GNR and Wonka..I still do like my external polk subs as well

    Thanks! We put a lot of effort into the asthetics and use model of the GT.

    Quoted from ulmpharmd:

    upgrading GNR and Wonka

    Hey ulmpharmd ! We hit the ball out of the park on JJP. The Line Trimmer for the GT amp (pictured above) allows you adjust your external sub volume from the coin door location like shown. The GT line out is at studio level signal (+10dBV) so you get lots of drive capability.

    I agree with ulm, this really looks great. What the heck, I’m going to spring for it and give this system a shot on my GnR LE.

    I’ll do just the external sub on Mando, that game should have some pretty elite bass.

    Sounds like fun! I know you'll enjoy the upgrade and you'll get VIP post order support:

    I've ordered the Pinnovators boards for 4 of my games plus the multi adapter to hook them all up to one sub.
    GNR, Stranger Things, TNA and Star Trek
    Updates after the install

    #5171 3 days ago

    Pinnovators boards arrive today. Polk audio sub coming this week.
    I hope to set it all up this weekend!

    #5172 1 day ago

    I visited the Chattanooga Pinball Museum today. Pretty cool place. Lots to see. They had Hot Wheels, which I had never seen. I put the high score on that one after several attempts.

    Here’s one of the boards going into Star Trek (SAM). Here’s the Polk audio sub.
    For my 4 setup with the PinsMx, the 10 ft 3.5mm cables aren’t long enough to all reach the sub, I just ordered 4 10 ft 3.5mm extension cables. This should work perfectly.

    Looks incredible. Can’t wait to go visit you soon!

    I have an external subwoofer hooked up to Tron Legacy the same way and you will be blown away with the difference. When I had Avengers, it was awesome as well. Mudflaps, thanks again for making the original suggestion for this much needed addon.

    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    I go to a lot of places, but I only mention the ones that are interesting.
    Some places I go are not somewhere you want to be on a regular basis, with no pinball and not so cool of an environment.
    The area this place is located in downtown Chattanooga is scenic with many restaurants and such.
    For $21.38, you too can experience this place from 2PM-9PM on most days.
    They say it is $20, but there is $1.38 tax added to that on entry and you get an orange wristband.
    About 25% of the machines were contemporary DMD machines, about 50% were solid state and the remainder were EMs.
    Most machines were working, but some had issues.
    There were a LOT of a machines here.
    They had at least 10 older machines that I had never seen or played before (mostly EMs).
    OXO, Orbiter, Volcano, Big Brave, Gorgar, Dominos Pizza, etc., etc.
    I played almost all of them once, maybe twice.
    They even had one machine from overseas somewhere about motorcycles and one giant machine that I bypassed.
    I was more interested in Hot Wheels and Harley Davidson (Stern) than anything else.
    It seems like the owner really likes Twilight Zone and the Adams Family, that were in a prominent location.
    Every machine had a little plastic placard on it to describe the vintage, manufacturer and general info on the machine.
    Much like David Yopp does at a bar in Memphis on his machines.
    It is worth a visit if you are in the area, it is unique.
