PinWooferTM – Spike-2 Upgraded Pinball Speaker Pack
Adding our upgraded speakers to your existing PinWoofer system is a great way to improve your audio experience.
We do not promote speaker upgrades without a PinWoofer Amplifier. This upgrade is for your existing PinWoofer System. Please supply your amplifier serial number when ordering.
Note that upgrading speakers alone unlocks only about 25% of the potential of your title. To unlock the full potential, we recommend a full PinWoofer kit:

The PinWoofer Dual Voice Coil Cabinet Speaker is the premiere driver for your pinball machine.
Get more bass intensity from your PinWoofer Amplifier with this dual voice-coil, high sensitivity, 2Ω driver.
The cabinet speaker mounting ring is required so that the woofer does not contact the cabinet floor at high volume intensity. If you have the MDF version of the cabinet speaker mounting ring (shipped prior to January 2022), our new injection molded ring is more rigid and provides a tighter coupling to the enclosure.
In almost all cases, aftermarket or “upgraded” multi-axial speakers are designed for automotive or marine applications. They employ rigid tweeter materials such as PEI or Mylar. These materials are extremely efficient on purpose so that they are audible over the ambient noise of a car or boat. A consequence of this efficiency is that they overpower the sound field in other applications (i.e., in a game room environment) and present harsh or “grinding” overtones that severely degrade the quality of reproduction and the sound field.
This is also true of other aftermarket pinball speaker “upgrades” which are no better than a typical automotive speaker.
Much of what separates the PinWoofer backbox speaker from others is the oversized Silk Dome Tweeter which balances reproduction of the sound field over a larger frequency domain compared to rigid tweeters. Our Silk Tweeter element has a much smoother tonal characteristic compared to other cost saving materials such as PEI or Mylar. You can really hear the difference!
Includes i) two 43in strips of playfield glass tape, ii) one Dual Voice Coil Cabinet Speaker, iii) Cabinet Mounting Ring (with hardware), iv) one pair of 5.25in PW-525 backbox speakers, v) one pair of Spike-2 backbox speaker mounting rings and required mounting hardware.
Installation is simple, requiring only a few basic hand tools.
Compatible with Stern Spike-2 titles. Please verify your mounting requirements when selecting your trim option (Pro/Premium/LE trim).

Recently ordered the new upgraded speakers for all 4 of my games, EHOH, GZ, RUSH and METALLICA, and cannot believe how much better the sound is. Bass really thumps and much cleaner at all volumes. Highly recommend!
