I now have my Deluxe 5.25" SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits listed at http://www.speakerlightkits.com Just select Speaker Light Kits and select the SPIKE 2 game you are wanting a Speaker Light Kit for. You will then be directed to choose what type of SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kit you would like (Standard, Deluxe or Deluxe 5.25"). I have a screen grab from the listing and feature list from my website below.

I also have the install instructions on my website and these are probably the easiest Speaker Light Kits to install that I have ever had.

http://www.speakerlightkits.com/Deluxe-5.25-SPIKE-2-Install.html

These Deluxe 5.25" kits are ONLY for use on SPIKE 2 games that have 5.25" speakers. This includes several of the LE games including:

Batman 66 (SLE)
Iron Maiden (LE)
Deadpool (LE)
The Munsters (LE)
Black Knight: Sword of Rage (LE)
Jurassic Park (LE)
Elvira's House of Horrors (SE and LE)

I have been selling these to various interested parties for the past couple of months and I have seen a couple of posts about them, but now is when I would really like the early adopters to help me out with some nice pictures (or videos) to show off their Deluxe 5.25" SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits.

I am planning on selling different color speaker surrounds for the 5.25" speakers also. The issue is I have 20ish different colors to choose from and don't plan on stocking all of them (though I would like to make them all available to people). So I am looking for suggestions on what colors people may like on different games. What comes from the factory looks good in most cases, but the surrounds in The Munsters and Jurassic Park are a bit underwhelming since light does not shine through them. Hopefully Stern got rid of all of them with JP and they stick with the acrylic surrounds from here on out that allow light to shine through them. I have actually sold a couple of green sets for JP LE use, but only seen one picture posted and it was with the lights set to green....so it's kinda hard to see what the green looks like on the game with it turned off. In any case, please let me know what you think would look good on what games. If you are interested in a surround set, send me an e-mail at my support e-mail on my website. The surrounds are $22.50 a set.

I also hope to have 5.25" speaker plates to offer at a good price, but that project is taking way longer than it should be. I hope to be able to offer them for people looking to do a 4" to 5.25" speaker upgrade for a much better price than that upgrade is available for currently. That is still quite a way out though.

I had someone ask about one of the Deluxe 5.25" Speaker Light Kits in a Deadpool LE (since it already has factory speaker lights). They work great in Deadpool LE. I put a kit in my friend's game and shot a video when I was halfway finished with the install. After I showed my friend and asked him what he thought he told me to take out the factory lighting and finish the install with the Deluxe 5.25" Speaker Light Kit. So I removed the factory light brackets and wiring and left them in the coin box for him.

This video shows the factory lighting on the left and the Deluxe 5.25" Speaker Light Kit on the right (the video thumbnail is a bit deceiving). With my light kit you have many more options and even lighting than the factory effort. I also believe replacing the factory surrounds with red ones would make things look even better. I'm expecting they used the translucent surrounds from the factory to try to help their weak lighting show up more, but with my light kits that's not an issue and I think using opaque red (like Iron Maiden LE and Black Knight: Sor LE) would give a more even look to the surrounds.

Now I just need a Batman 66 SLE to try them on...

I have sold quite a few of the new Deluxe 5.25" SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits, but have only seen two or three videos, pictures or mentions of them. With all of the Jurassic Park LE and Elvira LE games that have been delivered in the past few weeks I would have expected to see some of them in action, but besides one early JP LE picture, I have seen only Black Knight LE and Iron Maiden LE videos. Isn't anyone buying these for their Jurassic Park or Elvira LEs?

Sadly it seems these were getting more press before I had them listed on my website, when I said I wasn't ready for anyone to mention them... New product post over a month old = 1 like

Since it had so much red on the cabinet and so much purple in the playfield, I decided to try to match the green in the lettering of the cabinet.

dugfreez Thank you for all your help!
