    What can I say.

    I just had the chance to install a set of these in my TWD prem and I am speechless .

    The kit that they put together was outstanding and fit and finish was perfect.

    But beyond that sound quality actually got worse. I don't know what if these pigs are total power hogs or just plain garbage but they sound like terrible.

    I spent two hours doing a professional instal action and they actually made my game sound worst.

    Tomorrow I have to take the time to put everything back to original and get this attempt of HIFI out of my game

    EDIT : will try to get this solved.

    I’ll take it off your hands for shipping if you’re serious, but wondering if something got wired up incorrectly somehow?? I’ve had good exp. with these in past games?? Strange!

    I would be guessing those are 8 ohm speakers replacing 4 ohm original speakers...If that's the case you would need to hook them up in series rather than parallel.

    I would be calling Greg at Pinball Pro. He stands behind his product.
    You either have a defective product, wiring issue or the amplifier in your game is weak and the new speakers are putting the circuit over the edge.

    Any chance you bought them from a previous owner who may have blown one and repackaged it?

    I got these used off a friend that said they did not sound good either. Thought how bad can they be,

    how can I tell the difference in the kits . I used on a Sam ... maybe its for Spike

    THX man I will look into. Does Spike use 8 ohm speakers

    Interesting I have a mix these and flipper fidelity in many of my machines and find the pinball pro to offer a more fuller sound.

    Maybe just a bad set of speakers?

    . Looks like they are run in parallel. Should the be run in series. LMK if I am wrong please

    Greg is VERY involved. And those speakers are either broken or installed incorrectly. Let him know

    i may be wrong but some of the speaker kits actually have black as positive.

    Does Spike use 8 ohm speakers

    If you check the pinballpro website you'll see both the Spike and Sam kits use 8 ohm speakers. Installation instructions are on their site.

    The stock The Walking Dead (Premium/LE) backbox speaker is 8 ohms: https://www.pinballlife.com/stern-4-back-box-speaker.html

    You should definitely contact them, I have 5 sets and all sound great, I buy a set when I see them at the shows, very friendly and great support.
