The LE's speaker surround rings are not lit from the factory on this game, but I say...light em' if ya got em'.
Here is a video of my soon to be released "Deluxe SPIKE 2 5.25" Speaker Light Kits" from http://www.SpeakerLightKits.com This light kit is only for SPIKE 2 users with the larger 5.25" speakers that many LE games have. I should have these light kits available soon as well as custom color speaker surrounds and 5.25" speaker plates that will allow Pro and Premium owners to upgrade their speakers (with light kits) for a more affordable price than it currently costs.
This video shows the same Kenwood speakers that JP LE has as well as yellow speaker surrounds. I have no hands on experience with the JP LE factory surround, but I suspect it is an opaque yellow just like the example in the video (UPDATE: I was told the factory included surround is actually a brass color...which I suspect is the same one that was in Munsters LE and would NOT allow the light to shine through the surround ring).
The good thing about the yellow surround is the light color seems to change it quite easily. As you can see, if the light behind it is red the surround appears red, the same for yellow and green.....blue and some other colors...not so much. In any case, it is much more exciting than a surround that does not allow any light to shine through it at all...I'm talking about you Munsters surrounds.
In any case, I will have many different color surrounds available and the light kits also look great without any speaker surround at all and I honestly prefer that to using a surround that doesn't allow light to shine through it.
As stated, these 5.25" light kits will be available soon and have the same DELUXE features that my, currently available, Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits have. Individually addressable LEDs, RF RGB controller with 358 different colors / color transitions and it's own power supply so it is not using power from the game's boards. It's the same great Deluxe Speaker Light Kit.....in a smaller and rounder shape.
