    Quoted from EightBallTexas:

    Hope we can make the already good Aliens better. Have not heard anyone complain on the stock.

    I've not heard it myself, but my guess is to leave it alone EightBallTexas - and no toes!

    Quoted from beelzeboob:

    Okay...so if I wanted to get the best system you've got for my next game, what would it be? The KO or the GT?

    Hey beelzeboob !

    "Best" is subjective - the difference between offerings is in the feature set.

    Anyone can call the shop and describe what their goals are and I can advise.

    Happy to help.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Well, "best" in my mind is the one with all the bells and whistles. So I guess the GT it is! (I just wish I had known about the price increase when I PM'ed you...I would have just bought one and stored it for the game coming at the end of the year.)

    PS - My friend will be contacting you for a GT set for his LZLE. He loves the way mine sounds.

    Thought I would share my experience with the GnR kit I bought. To keep it short but sweet, yes the speakers sound better than stock. I'm happy with my purchase and would recommend them for music pins specifically. Is it imperative like a color dmd? No IMO. Is it super easy to install? Yes. And I can't stress how good the customer service is from Dan. The guy is a BEAST and responded to my questions literally within the hour I sent it.

    Big props to Dan and appreciate the help. My GnR now sounds even better. Cheers.

    Where can I find instructions on the Pinwoofer system regarding making adjustments. My AIQ came with the new system installed and it sounds fine with the volume cranked. But when I want to play at lower volumes, I getting popping and audio cutting out. Leaving AIQ with a ball in the launcher, some of the audio is actually missing from the music and it sounds awful.

    Here are the recommended starting adjustments for AIQ:

    The critical adjustment in your case to set the gain to 3o'clock.

    Please give me an email or call if you need further assistance.

    I ordered the GT kit for my new Wonka LE. There is so much going on with the audio, great movie clips and audio bytes that were getting lost with the original speakers. I was a bit skeptical. The install took me a bit because I’m a bit of an idiot when it comes to these things but that’s just me. Anyway, I was blown away. It was 10X better than the stock audio. So good in fact, I ordered another one for my Godzilla Premium. I can’t wait to hear it on that thing. It makes me sad that the manufacturers could have audio like this in their pins for just a little more and don’t, but that’s why pinwoofer fills the niche. Great product.

    Quoted from HurryUpPinball:

    I just wrapped up my second PinWoofer install tutorial, this time for a JJP machine. It made a world of difference on Wonka and I am really glad to finally have some rich sounds and bass. Just wanted to share this in case anyone was considering adding a PinWoofer kit to their JJP machine. Again, I never knew how much sound was missing until I installed this kit.

    Thanks for the video. Great tutorial. Helped me out a lot today on my install.

    What's the likelihood of any Black Saturday deals Dan? Been sitting on the fence for a while.

    Hey Flynnyfalcon ! Great to hear from you.

    Considering the supply chain issues in the US and the rapidly rising cost of our goods sold, we will not be having a Black Friday sale this year. We have managed to keep our pricing flat and hope to be able to do so through November, and to re-evaluate next month. I wish it were different - it would have been fun.

    Best wishes!

    I recently installed the Pinwoofer system in my EHOH everything was clearer and sharper. Great product and installation video. Dan is great to work with.

    #615 15 days ago

    Just put one of Dan's kits on zilla, night and day difference. Call outs are crisp, zilla roar more defined, bass hits hard, great addition.

    Thanks, Dan

    Great news! I believe both of these were the Knockout "KO" Amplifier - can't go wrong there.

    Enjoy!

    Difference bw ko and the gt? Any Black Friday sale happening?

    #620 15 days ago

    I’ve never understood this and maybe I’m doing it wrong, but what are we supposed to do with the smallness of the negative terminal on the pyle speaker, as it doesn’t match size of connector on wiring harness and is super loose/wonky when connected?

    #621 15 days ago

    Just pinch the connector a bit with pliers, easy to spread open with a screwdriver if you go too far

    Perfect, thank you!

    Anyone know of there are any recommended amp settings yet for Godzilla?

    This should help but Hayfarmer seems to have you covered:

    https://pinwoofer.com/blog/pinwoofer-tighten-up-loose-speaker-terminal-crimps/

    The rationale behind not changing the blue negative crimp to a smaller one, is that there are other speakers out there and we don't want to hem ourselves or the customer in to a small negative connector if another speaker is in play.

    Hey delt31 - the amplifier feature differences are shown in the image below.

    I made a comment earlier with regards to Black Friday:

    If I have a GZLE , will the pinwoofer speakers really sound better than the kenwoods? If not, do you sell the amp and wires without the speakers if you think the speakers are similar.

    Yes, the PinWoofer supplied speakers will sound better. We recommend getting the KFC-1366S out of play and to replace them. This Kenwood model has a smaller voice coil and magnet, and the result is a thin sounding backbox. Below is a trusted comparison between what we offer, and the Kenwood:

    Great question medic7000 - thanks for the post!
