Hello,

I've had the Speaker Light Kits for the Stern SPIKE 2 system games available on my website for a couple of weeks, but I hadn't made an announcement thread about them yet.

http://www.speakerlightkits.com/Type-11.html

It has been a busy year for me working on these new light kits and the new speaker panel type on the SPIKE 2 games was quite a change. Any other game changes that had been made, that concerned my light kits, since I started making them in late 2012 had been handled pretty quickly. I believe I had the first SPIKE light kit ready (WWE) before they were even being delivered to customers, but the big changes in SPIKE 2 took longer for me to work out than I would have expected. So it feels good to finally have them on the website for sale and see customers enjoying and posting pictures of them.

To be honest, I still feel like I could have used more time to work on some other additions to the SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits. I do have "Replacement Speaker Plates for SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kit use" which should be finished in the next few weeks. This is not a required item, but it is something that I think users of aftermarket speakers may want, to make their installation easier. I want my Speaker Light Kits to work well and as easily as possible with other mods so a buyer doesn't have to make a decision to have one mod over another.

I have also just added acrylic designs suitable for Batman 66, Aerosmith, Star Wars and Guardians of the Galaxy to my website.

I hope to keep this thread updated for a while as new things are readied for release. If anyone has any questions feel free to PM, email me at support@speakerlightkits.com or to ask here. I will do my best to answer any questions, help with any issues or concerns and give any tips that I can. Just as a quick tip if you are interested in purchasing....read the install instructions and info before ordering so you know what is involved. The SPIKE 2 install instructions, acrylic design mounting tips and aftermarket speaker information is linked to from the manuals page on my website:

http://www.speakerlightkits.com/Manuals.html

I have also recently added a sound activated RGB controller as an add-on accessory to my light kits ($10). The controller is custom made to easily work with any of my Speaker Light Kits so it has the same 2 output connection and longer output and remote eye wires as the standard RGB controller that is included with all of my Speaker Light Kits. You can read more details about it, along with my great sales pitch on it here:

http://www.speakerlightkits.com/Use-of-Sound-Activated-RGB-Controller.html

On an un-SPIKE 2 related note...I also have a new Historic US 66 (Mustang / Harley-Davidson) acrylic design I added reciently.

So thanks for reading and I hope people enjoy the new SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits from www.speakerlightkits.com

European re-sellers of the SPIKE 2 kits might happen in the future, but at this time they are only being sold at www.speakerlightkits.com

I do ship first class international which is the lowest cost way to ship items internationally. Another strange thing when shipping first class international is the shipping cost is the same to ship 2 complete light kits as it is to ship 1. So doubling up on light kits will basically cut the international shipping cost in half.

Hi Doug,
Thank you for your answer,
my question about european re-sellers of the Spike 2 kits was just to avoid the taxes and fees from Usa to Europe and the so many time that the order stays in the customs.
But no problem, i will do my order of your amazing speaker light kit, as always, here:

All the best!

Not sure I'm a fan of the glare off the glass and I don't typically buy $250 pieces of invisiglass. How is it in person as far as glare?

#11 7 months ago

I have the speaker light kits and acrylics on all my games. I also use the plastic glare guards from pinball life to block the glare.

Like any speaker lights they are visible on the playfield glass, even with invisiglass. $8.95 on Bentplastic solves that problem........

All of my Speaker Light Kits (including these) have 8 levels of adjustable brightness via their 44 key remote control. As others have suggested, plastic glare guards do wonders and I'm sure the HD InvisaPDI glass should help.

Recently I installed the speaker light kit mod into my Stern Star Wars Premium pinball machine. The install was done quickly and not many tools were required. The speaker light mod does a nice job of improving the look of any pinball machine.

Nice video. I have never seen your YouTube channel before, but I look forward to checking out some more of your videos.

I recommend anyone buying a SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kit to check out the more in depth install instructions on my website.

I like the speaker lights however the plastic stand offs are junk. The just don't seem to tighten up.

#19 7 months ago

your obviously over tightening them, they work fine if properly installed.

Are your acrylic designs on the exterior of the speaker box or in the interior behind the honey comb?

Wow...sorry for not seeing this sooner. The designs in the pictures are on the outside of the honeycomb grill area and after trying them many different ways myself....I can't imagine anyone thinking they look better behind the grills, so I think on the outside is the way to go.

I have just restocked quite a few acrylic designs that have been out of stock for awhile. So now everything is IN STOCK on the website.

Extra hex standoffs are now being included with each light kit. Holding things in place is really as tight as the hex posts or nuts on them need to be. Make sure everything is threaded on straight and don't over tighten them and there shouldn't be any issues.

I also added listing for Iron Maiden Pro, LE and Premium Speaker Light Kits to the website. The LE requires some factory spacers to be removed that are originally between the speakers and the factory speaker plates and that is described on the website when selecting Iron Maiden LE.

I am also working on acrylic designs suitable for Iron Maiden since the Pro, LE and Premium art packages have finally all been shown. I hope to have a couple of different designs to choose from soon.

I also still have my replacement speaker plates for Speaker Light Kit use coming. These should make the light kit install easier for people that have aftermarket speakers or wish to add aftermarket speakers in the future.

I just added a couple of new Acrylic Design sets to my website at www.speakerlightkits.com

If anyone would want these (or any of my acrylic designs) in a different color or type of acrylic, customization is no extra charge as long as you are also buying a Speaker Light Kit from me, pre-pay for your order and are patient as it may take an additional 1 - 3 weeks to get the custom order to you. If you are interested in doing that, please e-mail me at support@speakerlightkits.com and let me know what design you would like and in what type of acrylic you would like it made.

Thanks,

Doug (SpeakerLightKits.com)
