Quoted from zaphX:

I am probably oversimplifying the conditions that raise it. Keefer can chime in maybe. If it pops up in the coil test I wouldn't worry about it.

Humm.. ok, would be nice to know any conditions. I mean, I'm no pinball god, but I've definitely gone through many different chapters with many different character combinations and not once has that post popped up.

#8352 5 months ago

I feel like having black pearl MB qualified is related somehow. I’ll pay more attention next time it happens.

Quoted from Zora:

I am very interested to understand how you plugged the speakers in, especially the 2 way speakers. For the external sub I use alligator clips and an activ sub. Do you do this similarly or is there a direct plug in possibilty for the sub as well.
Would you share your solution. Thanks a lot!

I desoldered the wires from the internal speakers and soldered the source wires to new speaker wires that I ran down into the cab, out the hole in the bottom, and back up to the top.

For the speaker boxes, I soldered a short wire to the speakers and ran those out the hole in the box, and soldered that end to the spring terminals.

If you leave the tweeter wires soldered then just unplug them.

I bought the 4" speaker boxes off ebay. They have a hole in the box for wires but not terminals, so I also bought the spring terminals off Ebay. $34 for those items plus the speakers, which I already had.

I would've bought boxes for the 5" midrange and just relocated them, but they don't sell boxes for that size.

So who's going to write up a complete speaker replacement?

I must truly be getting old as I feel the speaker volume and sound is More then enough as delivered.

I added an external sub (as I typically do), but otherwise I'm good too.

Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

I’ve been considering trying that, as I have a spare sub left over from my move doing nothing. Where did you run the wire? Do you buy the alligator clip kits that are offered here on Pinside frequently?

Is the external sub located inside the pin, under the pin, beside the pin?

#8360 5 months ago

External sub is a large box that sits under the pin. I don’t care for the clutter so I switched to the PinWoofer internal sub, installed inside the pin cabinet. Also adds a bit of vibration to the pin with sound which really enhances effects nicely. When I blow up the dauntless I can feel it now.

Full info for anyone interested:

I hooked up a Polk PSW10 powered subwoofer to my POTC as I have with all of my Stern games and my Houdini. These sound great and are relatively cheap - as little as $80 online occasionally. I think it helps with POTC's bass, but it's not as noticeable a difference to me as on my newer Stern games which I attribute to JJP's cabinet subwoofer probably being better than Stern's.

This is the cable that I have used to connect most of my subwoofers (but there are a lot of others that will work as well and you typically only need one RCA jack rather than two):

amazon.com link »

On the right underside of your POTC's CPU (located behind the backbox screen), you'll find the typical (pink, green, blue(?)) sockets for audio jacks to plug into. You want to use the headphone output socket that the cabinet front headphone socket's cable is already connected to. To do so you'll need a splitter (3.5 mm male to (2) 3.5 mm females) so you can connect your subwoofer to it as well.

I ran the cable out the bottom of the cabinet through one of the ventilation openings - you'll need to pry up the screen slightly. If you use a Polk PSW 10 just follow the simple instructions that come with it for its various settings.

Thank you for your feedback, highly appreciated!

So you replaced the backbox speakers by your external ones. Which frequence do they have? Woudl it be possible to add the external 2 way speakers additionally to the internal ones (like the alligator clip solution to the external sub; however, the sub is not critical due to the active sub character) or would that be problematic due to the 4''?

I thought the same thing - never noticed the post going up except to lock the ball (from behind). But now that I'm looking for it, it does definitely happen. Really not necessary as you can always shoot the chest to feed the flipper, but the post is a cool feature. Amazing that after months of play I'm still learning new things about this pin!

Not sure on frequency response but it sounds great. Just find a good car speaker.

You don't want to pull down the impedance by keeping the original speakers connected. The 4" speakers are 4 ohm, and having both connected would drop the impedance down to near 2 ohm and could damage the amp.

The reason that works okay for a powered subwoofer is that the sub's speaker inputs are very high impedance, so they don't really change the overall impedance seen by the pinball amp.

#8365 5 months ago
Quoted from arzoo:

Out of curiosity, for the right outlane save, do you have rubber on one or both of the posts. If only one, is it the upper or lower?

Neither - I removed the rubber. That is the way that Eric had them setup for the prototype pins and was his general intent (at that time at least). He said that it would ship with the rubber on the top post and could be switched or removed, depending on preference. I like to play it the way his intent was for it. You have to nudge to save it still.

It happens when there is not a character to collect on the left orbit shot but there is a character to collect in the map hole or inner orbit shots. Like others said, the idea is to block a shot going up the left orbit in order to feed the upper flipper and collect those characters. Personally I find it a bit jarring and I'm still trying to get better at using it because 1) I'm never expecting it when it happens & 2) the ball often bounces so hard off the post that it flies past the flipper before I can use it. Here's the explanation from Keefer earlier in this forum:

AH, thanks. I'll pay more attention, I think it may have happened last night after we discussed.

#8368 5 months ago

I like how some chapters have like 3 characters and others have 10.

It's DEF surprising when characters fill up across the entire screen when hitting a chapter.

"Woah..."

Totally agree. The other day I had an "at world's end" chapter that lit up almost every character...the little "bling, bling, bling" sound just kept going and going and my son and I were like..."did we break something?"

That sound effect is deadly magic. Definitely one of the reasons I wanted to own it. Literally Pavlovian.

"Collect the gold!!!"

How many times have I taken my hand off a flipper to watch the ball drain. Talk about pavlovian.

It's one thing to hit the button with one hand and a completely different thing to try and hit it with the other hand - ya know, the hand that you wouldn't naturally hit it with all the while trying to make a split-second decision on which hand to choose as the ball is zinging towards the flippers.

Good times!

#8374 5 months ago

I mean, damn, there's enough skill in being cognizant of which letters in P-I-R-A-T-E you have lit up and watching how your flipping which of course is changing what is highlighted...

I mean...if you "care" about the P-I-R-A-T-E rewards.. =)

Lol it is an addictive greed that makes us go for the gold. Maybe I should work on a belt mounted Mod third hand slapper to collect your gold! lol

I'm apparently bad at those split second decisions, lol. I have been mainly waiting to trap the ball to hit the button now... I'm ok with getting less gold over a drain on my 200k point games, lol.

This sign is in my gameroom to (ideally) inject some humor into situations where players (including me) struggle on my games.

That’s why you select Captain Norrington as you only have to hit the gold button 1 time to collect all. Helps you work on your multihand skills.

Cutler Beckett, you mean. . Norrington is easier chapter completions.

#8382 5 months ago

Beckett's downside is that he only gives you 1/2 the value of the gold you collect. Can be a steep price for convenience depending on your button hitting skills.

I like having 3 chapters lit or easier multiball. Screw the gold!

I'm into Blackbeard lately for longer multiball save time.

What is the method for getting to the tortuga hole curved flap/scoop? It's held on with two screws right through the top but the pop bumper skirt is in the way. Do I have to totally disassemble that pop bumper? I think the problem I am having with the tortuga hole is that the previous owner installed the cliffy without taking off the skirt (it looks like the skirt is messed up near the screws) and didn't push the "flap" all the way back when screwing it in (likely because they didn't take the skirt off) and so every time you hit the tortuga hole with any force it pops right back out. I don't know if maybe 1 out of 50 times I've made it in on purpose. Alternately, I can make the throne room on WOZ pretty much any time I want. Granted, it does not have a cliffy but it doesn't look like the cliffy is interfering at all.

There should be a link in the index for this. Use an allen wrench to remove Tom (there’s a hole in the barrel.). From there it’s screws from the top of the playfield until the pop bumper is loose enough to modify the Tortuga scoop guard. I had best results by aiming it as far left as it would go and I loctite’d it down. My Tortuga fires directly into the left flipper every time now.

Oh sweet, I thought I'd have to start pulling it apart from underneath. Simple enough.
