With a PLUS or NEO sound board, if you put multiple sound packages on the same flash drive, you can switch to the next available sound pack at any time by using the volume control. Turn the volume down to zero (you’ll hear a small beep indicating you’re at the minimum) then double tap (up down / up down). A preview of the new mix will then be played. Then turn back the volume to the desired level

Once installed, to enable advanced settings, go to:

  • settings menu / Standard Adjustements (S.P.I.).

On the Headphones Station MASTER, due to a Spike technical limitation, there is no red LED.

When your Headphones Station MASTER is installed, when you connect your headphones, the pinball machine will automatically mute the main speakers.

The Headphones Station MASTER is compatible with any standard pinball leg bolts spacing.

Installing the Headphones Station adds about 6mm (less that 1/4″) thickness.
