I have two Stern spike system 2 games Black knight and JP. I got the Black knight before the JP. The front speakers sounded like they were getting low frequency signals that they could not handle. I was thinking that it was just this game as the Black knight has a deep voice that's not the case. I found the same problem with my JP. So I would like to share my solution with the group as it makes it sound much better.

Just add bass blockers to the front speakers and your all set. Here is a link to the ones I used.

BB-199 6 x 9" 6 x 8, 7 10" 199 UF BASS BLOCKERS 200Hz @ 4 OHM 4 PCS amazon.com link »

Good luck

In the game software (starting with Spike 2 games) , check your speaker impedance settings. The audio settings can be set for whichever speaker impedance the speakers are that are installed in your particular machine: 4 ohms or 8 ohms. Yours might be set incorrectly.

Example: if your speakers are 8 ohms and the audio settings are set to 4 ohm, that could make a difference.

I can't find what you are talking about. It's not in the settings is it a dip switch? I don't know why stern would ship with the wrong setting ether. But if this is the problem I would like to corecrt it. thanks for your help.

Here it is from the game code updates readme files:

"CABINET SPEAKER TYPE" for Spike 1/2 games.
