Quoted from PlayPin:
I would like to add a subwoofer to S.W.P. I don't see any for sale at pinnovator, just a kit to hook you own box? I don't want a sub on the floor, just a better woofer in the bottom of the cabinet. I ordered a kit for my S.T. from flipper fidelity which I don't like at all. The bass drowned out all voices & call outs so that I could not make them out. I put the original speakers back into the speaker panel and left the sub in the lower which helped a lot. It still does not sound right though and I am going back to 100% stock on S.T. and feel I wasted $150 plus shipping now. Is there any good kits that produce clear and balanced sound for these Stern games? Of course all these games need more bass but not at the expense of losing clear voice call-outs, etc. Any help advice really appreciated!
Quoted from luvthatapex2:
Did you talk to Mike at FF? I have his sub/woofers in my games and they sound good. I removed the dial thing since it sounded better to me without it.
I don't have any spike games so maybe there is a different configuration for spike. Give him a ring.
Great timing, as I *just* now installed the Flipper Fidelity Spike 2 Kit with 8" sub & Speakerlight option on my SW Premium. I had previously installed Doug's SpeakerLights, so I knew to order these with the SpeakerLight option or the right backbox speaker will not fit in a Spike 2 cabinet.
Install took 20 minutes, very simple to do with great instructions included. Most everything is plug and play with existing HW. However, with SpeakerLights you must remove the crossbars on the factory speaker mount so that the protruding tweeters will clear on the replacement backbox speakers. Heavy duty pair of diagonal cutters took care of this easily. The Woofer requires the standard cutting of the speaker wire to remove the old woofer and crimping on of the connectors. Once again, simple remove and replace.
My SW Premium had (what I thought at the time) great sounding factory speakers, so I almost didn't make the change. Now that I did I am happy with it. There is a definite sound improvement, with some noticeable new sounds on the lower frequencies that were not audible before. Having the new audio adjustments that Stern has now included in the system setup code really helps one tweak it perfectly.
