Woz and hobbit especially do have better sound systems but the cab design was changed for di and everything after. However my potcle, dile and wonkale all sound great and better stock than any other company/pin I have owned. I have a Polk hooked up to all of them and I love the extra bass as it really adds to the experience.

The Polk adds depth to game

Nothing really to add to the thread other than to say that Wonka looks like an amazing game. You certainly look like you get your monies worth. The video posted earlier and delt31’s photo is just stunning.

#4254 1 year ago

Im going to take a good look at this when I get home. I did have quite a bit to drink that night when I got Wonka haha.

How can you access the speakers? Do the screws by the LE plaque hold the speaker grill in place? I want to make sure nothing is loose and that everything is wired correctly.

Everyone on this forum says it sounds great. Some reviews that I read specifically mention what I am hearing. So im not sure what to think.

#4255 1 year ago
Quoted from KingBW:

How does game audio sound through headphones using the headphone jack?

Funny enough. It was your review that I noticed mentioning the sound having no depth and that the sound files were probably taken from a slot machine...

#4256 1 year ago

Ok so there is definitely an issue with the left speakers. They are distorted, crackly and high pitched. When i disconnect that plug and only have the right speakers connected i can hear a definite sound difference for the better.

Any thoughts? How go I access the speakers?

This is a new Wonka right?Maybe you could have your distributor look at it.
I had an issue with my Wonka and Zack @ Flipnout came over and took care of it.

#4258 1 year ago

Its the left side tweeter. Its distorted and crackly making it sound bad. It almost sounds like its overpowering the other left speaker also

Ya, there isn't much bass content in the background music and most of the sound effects. Some of the newer sounds have some bass content. Definitely less than Pirates, Hobbit, and WOZ.

Contact JJP Support. They have been excellent for the issues I've had here and there since getting mine.

How did you hook up the polk? Was just looking to do this but didn't see a direct plugin. I was planning on running wires from the existing speaker. Is there a butter way?

See the pinnovators solution to connect up to the speaker. It isolates the ground. Some people land up having weird ground loop issues between pins if you connect 2 pins to 1 sub. This fixes that.

Ive done it in the past by connecting to the sub under the cabinet.

I went to try the headphones jack last night but it only gave me sound into one ear. I tried two pairs.. Both were earbuds.

Any thoughts on that?

Headphone jack module wiring harness is backwards on the module at the front of the game. Turn it around.

Sound quality-wise I have found WOZ and Hobbit to be very good and no need to enhance or change anything.

However when I got Dialed In I did notice the 'depth' / bass lacking not so much that I made any changes I just put it sown to cabinet changes and not really having a sound score like Hobbit.

Then I got Pirates and the sound was pretty bad (IMHO), it totally lacked depth / bass and was so tinny it was almost offensive to hear!
So I upgraded the sub and popped in a dedicated sub-woofer amp;

https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07M69K3VS/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It transformed the sound on Pirates.

A week ago I took delivery of Wonka and the sound again was not great just like Pirates, this time I just popped in the dedicated sub-woofer amp and that again made a huge improvement far more immersive and with a great bass to the music, speech and sfx.

So much so today I have ordered another amp for my Dialled In.

Its a shame I have to spend more on a £10k machine but I can not abide poor sound.

Interesting.. So for Wonka, all you did was add an amp to the existing sub on the bottom of the cabinet?

Also, for Wonka, how did you get the signal to the amp? Looks like it shows RCA's as inputs but I thought the subwoofer in the cabinet ran with speaker wire?

#4271 1 year ago
Quoted from Rager170:

Yes.

To power the amp I simply snipped the power inside the machine coming from the switch to the transformer and connected the amps power supply in-line so when the machine is off so is the amp.

Then using heavy duty velcro I stuck the amp and its PSU to the base of the cabinet (bu the sub so if I ever fold up the machine its stays in place.

About 30 mins upgrade in total.

Quoted from Rager170:

For this I snipped the subs speaker wires, left enough wire to connect to the amp and then the speaker wires coming from the game simply stripped them and using electrical tape joined them to a cable that has 2 RCAs to connect into the amp.
I may go back and solder it but hey it works and no-one is going to see it.

Very interesting.. Snipping the power line as mentioned in the other post would make me nervous! ha

This is the connector you need to look at. Mine did the same thing and came loose. Reseat that and make sure it’s in those pins.

The J101?

#4280 1 year ago

Ok great thanks. I was looking in the manual earlier and thought that might be what I needed to look at and make sure the pins are correct.

#4281 1 year ago

Now if JJP can get back to me on my speaker issue!

#4282 1 year ago
Quoted from Rager170:

I made the exact same mistake on my headphone/speaker jack installation on my Wonka SE. (I purchased the kit directly from JJP for my machine). When I ran the wiring harness to the module on the front of my machine, I accidentally plugged J101 in backwards. The harness isn't keyed, so it's easy to do. I only had mono sound coming out of one ear. Flipping the connector the other way fixed the issue.

Looks like someone on the production line made the same error.

Yup, thats the first thing I am going to try. Surprised the connector isnt keyed. I hate unkeyed connectors ha.

I’m getting the run around now on my CE delivery

#4285 1 year ago

So earlier I posted about removing that protective plastic bc it looked better on the right ramp. I've been playing that way for the past month however I would suggest not doing this bc last night the ball did move more than I've ever seen to the left. Luckily not close to causing damage but I'm not pushing it.

Long story short, don't take off the plastic on the right ramp!

JJP had to send me a new oompa loompa sculpture because of airballs. I'd recommend leaving the ramp cover in place.

Heh yup. Before JJP sent that to me a stray ball snapped the front of my camera right off!

#4288 1 year ago

My camera also broke. JJP replace it. Kept it as a backup and fixed the original by drilling and placing a screw in it. Used white tape to cover the crack. Also had to zip tie the hand back on the camera.

Hey all, so I'm noticing one of my magnets is starting to hum loudly when activated. It's the one that grabs the ball from the left ramp and holds it for a beat for the upper left flipper (by the start of Kid Multi-ball.) I started noticing it about 5 games ago and either it's getting progressively louder or I'm hyper-focusing on it

Any ideas what it could be? The magnet itself is doing its job, it's just the loud hum driving me batty. Thanks.

This. Wonka CE has been flowing freely for 2 months now. Anyone making excuses not to deliver is highly questionable.

I'm calling Jack tomorrow. Gonna get to the bottom of it.

Like i said, fully paid since April of last year.

Quoted from wesman:

Nope, to get my money back i need to know WHO has it! Distro claims he pays in full for games ordered and thus collects in full. I paid whenever the announcement came out. If Jack has my $$ then I'd just like to get my game OR send it back to me.

I hope it gets sorted out. And you get your game.

And if Jack has a distributor not following through, he needs to know.

I am sorry for what ever went wrong in the process. You should be playing it.

Mine has been doing that since the day I got it. Don’t know if it’s a thing or not. Didn’t even think about it being an issue because I never had a game with magnets before.

I've never heard a buzz from any game I have owned that used magnets

Quoted from bigd1979:

Ya makes a audible buzz which I assume it’s power being turned on to the magnet. Doesn’t bother me but if it’s not right then who knows.

I second that... I received my pirate's CE within a week of my wonka CE... I was so convinced that the subwoofer was disconnected that I opened it up and checked everything out and it seems okay but I really do hope they crank up the base on the future update.
