This kit comprises an amplifier and a special pair of speakers called “Exciters” which, when installed, transmit vibrations through your Virtual Pinball cabinet. This enables you to feel every bumper pop, flipper press, target drop, collision or pretty much any type of mechanical “event” as it happens during play. On many pinball tables you can even feel the ball rolling down the playfield!!
This kit differs from the standard one in that includes a pair of Mini Bass Shaker Exciters that have a lower dynamic frequency range, which means they provide much more “thump” or “punch”. This makes them ideal for cabinets where a thicker material is used or it is made of MDF rather than Plywood, or if you simply want to receive a higher level of feedback. If you can’t feel anything with these bad boys in your VPin cabinet then you must have no sense of touch!
What do you get?
- 2 x Dayton Mini Bass Shaker Exciter Speakers
- 1 x 2.1 channel Amplifier, with power supply and Audio Cable
- 2m of Speaker Cable
- Instructions for installing hardware and configuring software
How do you install it?
Mount the Exciters and Amp into your cabinet and wire up the Exciters, connect the Audio Cable from the Amp to your secondary audio source (usually the headphone or Audio Out jack of your Playfield TV/Monitor), plug in the Amp’s power supply and the hardware installation is done.
You then change a couple of software settings on your PC (this differs slightly depending on which programs you run) so all the mechanical sounds generated are sent through to the Exciters and then you are ready to roll.
There’s obviously a bit more to it but it is all included in our VERY easy to understand instructions, so it should only take around one hour to complete everything required.
