Installation for Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits (Type 12)

IMPORTANT! The Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits use +5VDC, high current light strips. These kits are not compatible and do not share any electronics with other types of Speaker Light Kits. They are not compatible with after market accessory power supplies and are not meant to hook into a game's circuit boards. The Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kit includes its own power supply, which automatically switches on and off with the game's power.

 
           

This is a high power mod that uses 100VAC - 240VAC. Please follow the install instructions and be sure to UNPLUG YOUR GAME before doing anything else.


The physical installation of the deluxe SPIKE 2 speaker light frames (TYPE 12) are the same as the standard SPIKE 2 speaker light frames (TYPE 11). So you should follow the Type 11 install instructions UNTIL THE BOTTOM OF PAGE 7 here:

Then come back here for the power and other electronic connections that are different for the Type 12 Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits.

         
On the Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kits, the power connections are different from one another depending on if you have a North America game or an International game. The International games do not include a high power Bill Validator connection like the North America games, so they have to get their power directly from the game's power switch. You will only receive one AC power cable with each Deluxe SPIKE 2 Speaker Light Kit purchased. Orders placed from the US and Canada will receive the North America power cable and all other countries will receive the International power cable. If you need a power cable from a different region than where you are ordering from, please contact me at my support e-mail before placing your order to explain the situation. In both cases, the Speaker Light Kit is still automatically switched on and off when the game switch is turned on or off. You can find the...

and the

Then come back here for a description of the rest of the electronics connections.

 
The rest of the connection are pretty straight forward and clearly shown and described in the picture above. I will add a suggestion, to place the included power supply on the floor of the backbox with it slid as far forward toward the back of the LCD screen as it can go. This should make it so if the head is folded down, the power supply doesn't have any room to shift forward. Then if the game is being wrapped / strapped and stood up to move, the power supply is back to sitting on the backbox floor in its natural position. There is also enough cable length to put the power supply in the bottom of the cabinet if one would choose to, but I like the idea of keeping everything in the back box so there are fewer cables running between the backbox and cabinet.

Other simple things to mention are the connections to the Y-Splitter are made so they can only be plugged in the right way. When you give them a look you can see how they snap together. There are notches on the top of the light frame connections and you can see the slots they slide into in the Y-Splitter connections. The same type of connector is used on the RGB controller going into the Y-Splitter. The power supply is non polarized so it does not matter how the AC power cable is plugged into it.

After everything is mounted and connected you will now need to attach the support cables back to the speaker panel. Get some help or find something to support the speaker panel as you attach the support cables, washers and nuts to the top inner nylon studs. Again, make sure the nuts are threading on straight and you DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THEM. Also, make sure the support cables are positioned toward the backbox when they are tightened so when the speaker panel is folded down, it is supported by the cables in a natural position. Then put the translite back in place, close and lock the speaker panel, plug the game back in and turn it on. The Speaker Light Kit should come on right away. When using the remote, be sure to remove the clear battery saving tab that is slid in the battery hatch on the bottom of it. Enjoy.
