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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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:
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:
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
