PixlWav – Spike-2 Expression Lighting Speaker Light Kit

Our System Delivers Exceptional Visuals Found Nowhere Else

What's the secret? First, our illuminators use forward facing LEDs which is an industry first. They produce both soft and hard edges that brilliantly recreate the intended light patterns. Second, our injection molded, polycarbonate diffuser rings are far superior to any 3D printed material and produce smooth transitions during color and luminosity changes. When granular patterns appear in the orchestration you'll see the intended definition too. The result of our approach is an amazing light show that is unrivaled by other speaker lights!


Optional Spike-2 Speaker Plates and Mounting Considerations:

  • If you are using our PW backbox speakers, they are guaranteed to fit. If you are using a different speaker, please read the compatibility link below to ensure you don't encounter a mounting depth problem.
  • It is also strongly recommended that you read the below article to ensure you're familiar with the differences between the Spike-2 Speaker Plates and other considerations surrounding adding speaker lights:

Spike-2 Backbox Speaker Plates and Light Kit Compatibility

  • If you need a set of 5.25in Spike-2 Speaker Plates, simply select the correct trim option above, prior to checkout.

Spike-2 Machine Requirements:

  • This speaker light kit is designed to function only in a machine that has a working Stern Spike-2 Expression Lighting SystemTM, and only for the below titles and trims:
    1. Led Zeppelin - Pro/Premium/LE
    2. Rush - Pro/Premium/LE
    3. Foo Fighters - Premium/LE
  • If your machine does not have the stern Expression Lighting SystemTM already installed, this kit will not work. In this case we recommend the PixlWav Spike-2 Dynamic Backbox Speaker Light Kit at the below link:

Important Notes about Power:

  • The Spike-2 European Union Power Box is not wired for a 110AC Dollar Bill Validator, which is what the PixlWav power adapter is designed to connect to. This may apply to other countries beyond the EU. Please consider this before ordering internationally. We cannot assist you with your 110AC power adapter connection if your power box is not compatible with our power adapter plug.
  • The PixlWav system is designed to operate at 5V DC only. Never attempt to connect a different voltage; doing so is considered misuse and will result in damage to every system component. We are not responsible for misuse.


  • The PixlWav System is incredibly easy to install.
  • It is recommended that you read the installation instructions prior to ordering.
  • You'll need an 11/32 nut driver and about 15 to 30 minutes to complete the installation:

Additional System Capabilities:

  • The PixlWav System can be expanded by adding one additional hub to the first power supply. This enables the addition of outside of cabinet lighting such as under cabinet and back of backbox, topper, etc.
  • If an additional third hub is needed to expand the scope of your LED layout, another power supply and AC splitter is required.
  • Outside of cabinet lighting products are provided by Mezel Mods and will utilize the same electronics platform and connection topology. Visit Mezel Mods here: Expression Lighting Outside Cabinet Link

    Pixlwav Spike-2 Expression Lighting Backbox Speaker Kit and Speakers

    Posted by Ed Aborn on Jun 8th 2024

    These speaker lights are a perfect complement to the already amazing Expression Lighting system. They take the effects to a whole other level (around 6 inches vertically) LOL. Seriously, though, they really do set off the whole machine. The 5.25" speakers also sound fantastic compared to the stock Pro speakers. The installation instructions and process was straightforward and went very smoothly. The products, packaging and end results are all top notch.

    Spike-2 EL speaker light kit.

    Posted by Nick on Nov 23rd 2023

    If you're looking to add more wow factor to your pinball gameplay, then this is the kit for you. Pricing is great and the kit is super simple to install. I first tried installing the kit with my colored speaker surrounds and it looked okay. I then used the white inserts that were provided with the kit and that took the system to another level. Once I get another pin with ELs I will definitely be adding this kit.

    I installed a set of these in my Rush LE and they look great! Installation was simple and the instructions were very clear. Great job on this kit, can’t wait to see options for extending with backbox and under cabinet light strips.
