Using aftermarket speakers with Type 10 kits

Using aftermarket speakers in your SPIKE System game will work fine with the Speaker Light Kits, however, if they are aftermarket speakers that have a spacer ring attached to the front of them, it may cause complications with installing them.


There is limited space behind the right speaker in SPIKE System games because of the power transformer box. Due to this limited space, some aftermarket speakers that have attached spacer rings will not fit with the Speaker Light Kit frame. The only way to remedy this situation on these speakers is to carefully remove or cut down the spacer ring that is attached to the front of the speaker.

If a Speaker Light Kit is being used in a game, the spacer ring is not needed, as the Speaker Light Kit light frame will then be used as the spacer that the speaker needs for its extended tweeter.

Keep in mind this space limitation and need to remove the spacer ring only effects Stern SPIKE System games. Earlier Stern SAM (and Whitstar) System games have room to accommodate both the light kit frames and the aftermarket speakers with the attached spacer rings.

For more information on using these aftermarket speakers with a Speaker Light Kit please see the PDF file concerning this in the MANUALS SECTION.

Also note: Doing the spacer ring removal is done at your own risk. Neither I, nor the speaker manufacturer are responsible for any damage that may be caused by attempting to do so.
