    Happy to hear that you figured it out and amps are relatively cheap, and probably a reason why you now are trashing it ?! :unsure:   ;-)

    Yeah.  It was like $12.  The last one I had was great and it was the same.  Plus my exciter broke and I had to pull it off the side of the cab and now it won’t stick back on.  Tried new tape but nogo.  Gonna let it sit for a bit and Reevaluate situation cause I’m getting frustrated.  Unfortunately I have a big hole in the bottom of my cab with a 6 inch sub so I can’t waste that

    Never understood why people would want to use a tape solution. Mine is firmly attached and moveable.

    I used screws to hold my exciters to the inside of my cab.

    I just finished my ssf setup last night. 7.1 AVR hooked up to my PC through HDMI of my video card. 4 exciters, 1 sub and 2 4 inch back box speakers that have skulls on them with red eyes that light up with the music.

    Unfortunately mine don’t have those holes. I may redo the whole set up but it’s not going to be right now.

    They are 2.1 amps so you can run 2 exciters and a sub off one of them.

    I use a 7.1 audio video reciever to run all my speakers. Takes up some room in the cab but works great.

    I have my ssf working good now but I have a few issues.  sound level is the biggest.  Some tables the sound effects sound nice and loud like MAC Jungle, for instance, flippers nice and loud and left and right working.  I just updated teed off with your script @thalamus, the flippers are very quiet.  Either way ball rolling sounds and very very quiet.  With my old setup the sounds were fine so I know its not the table.

    just did galaxy play and before the script change for ssf the flippers were loud, now very quiet.

    Mac Galax – line 33, Teed off – line 25.

    Ball rolling too low ? Export from Jaws, delete all ballrolling* sounds on the problem table, then import the exported ones. Not much I can do with tables that uses low samples.

    Most of the scripts has volume settings in the top for the different elements. There is a huge difference in sound solutions out there. Making something fit for everyone is more or less impossible. I highly recommend that you run PinVol though.

    I find a lot of the tables need adjusting with ssf. I usually end up adjusting the volume on the dmd to make it sound more balanced with the table sounds and then use pinvol to set the overall volume so I dont have to touch the main volume on my amp.

    When I had the pf sounds running through the bg tv and not through the 5.1 card the volumes were fine.  It was only when I changed that when the sounds became very quiet.

    If the sounds used to be ok, well, then it is of course a local problem you have to fix yourself. Here, the two speakers in the backglass + the sub is the main output. Tables like Goonies where the sound/music is set to come from the table is just awful. Exciters can’t compete with the clarity of sound through air.
