Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
The most incredible innovation in paintball is here! ACI Sports' Sonic Conversation Kit converts your Griffin, Spyder, or other compatible marker in a fully electronic systems in a matter of minutes. No need to invest thousands of dollars on a new marker when you can add a Sonic Conversion Kit for the fraction of the cost.
Kit includes all components necessary to make gun fire electronically. The Sonic Conversation Kit will operate with Co2, Compressed Air, and Nitrogen gases. Velocity adjustment is achieved by turning the adjustment screw on the front of the Sonic Regulator. Gun timing is set by turning the "Pulse" screw at the rear of the "Housing Unit". Trigger pull is preset at the factory. The Sonic Conversation Kit is powered by a 9 volt battery which is located inside of the grip frame. To replace battery remove grips from grip frame for full access to battery.
Product Availability 
The ACI Sonic Conversion is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Havn't used anything like it actually...
Marker Setup: ACI Sonic Conversion. Venturi Bolt, 4 stage expansion chamber, custom 16 inch zero gravity barrell, drop-foreward regulator.
Strengths: Um...it looks cool. Good power. Doesn't chew balls.
Weaknesses: It's an air hog, and There are so many parts something almost always breaks...
Review: Okay so here's what I have to say. If you are going to spend the 400 dollars plus on this gun and accessories, make sure there aren't any loaded firearms anywhere nearby after you have played with it. Everytime I have taken it out to play something has broke. So basically I spent 400 dollars on a pile of crap. Maybe I am just unlucky like the other guy says, but still...Don't buy this gun.
Conclusion: Don't buy it, it's a waste of money. And even if your will work, you'll spend a small fortune on air.

All sorts of high end markers (Angels, Bushmasters, Intimidators, Black Magic Cockers, etc.) and this is by far one of the worst things I have ever seen. I used my friend's Griffin which had this Sonic Adapter and it shot about 5 balls and than it started chopping every ball it had. We took it back to ACI and it did the same thing. Total, my friend has sent it in 5 times and it is absolutle junk!
Marker Setup: ACI F-4 Illustrator with 12.5" Zero Gravity Barrel and 4 stage ACI Suz-Zero expansion Chamber with gas through fore grip, All Black. And I just got a 2002 Vertical Feed Autococker (stock right now)
Strengths: It looks pretty cool. First ten shots are great. Um... other than that I can't think of any.
Weaknesses: Almost everything is awful. Maybe the one we used was unlucky but my friend's brother had the same thing and his never ever worked right at all. It chops paint like there is no tomorrow, the velocity is never the same, and it is just too much of a hassle. I have never seen such a frustrating piece of machinery.
Conclusion: Don't buy this. It is not worth your time, money, or stress to deal with it. Go get the ACI LCD Griffin instead (if you still want something from ACI) which should hit stores in a few months (my friend traded his in for one of these but it does not work great either). I say save your $450 you would spend and get A Cocker and save up for a Nitrogen Tank (Bulldog and Flatline work great).

Strengths: Nice smoth action, high rate of fire,doesn't hurt your gun as much as elcd and hyper frame!
Weaknesses: expensive,olny for spyders and griffens
Conclusion: If you have a spyder shutter this is the best. you can compete with the angels. if you have about 300 dollers and get it! worth saveing money. The batery is a regular 9volt! (PLUS)! Doesn't hurt your gun! A MUST HAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I give this product a
10+++++

No products even compare to this marker.
Marker Setup: ACI Griffen Sonic conversion w/ 4-stage expansion chamber and Venturi bolt.
Strengths: Everything is good about this gun, so far I have experienced nothing bad. The air is always at a constant due to the regulator, it is a smooth action, Add it to any of the compatible markers and it will definately improve your performance. It can even compete with Angels.
Weaknesses: Expensive, but is worth the $350 instead of more for other electronic guns. So like the review before me says, Start savin' your pennies and secure your job cuttin' grass, or milkin' cows.(like I had to do)
Conclusion: A perfect gun. I rate a 10.00++++++++++++. Won't find a better marker ANYWHERE!

Nothing like this...
Marker Setup: Insane Spyder Xtra
Strengths: This Setup is nuts. If you can afford it get it. Forget the booyah. If you get the booyah you need nitro. With this your whole gun is electronic. No nitro needed. This is totally worth the money.
Weaknesses: Save up your pennies and start your summer job cutten grass cause its gonna take a while to get enough money to get it.
Conclusion: If you have $300 on and a spyder i highly recomend this over a freak set or booyah any day. I give this product a 10 only because theres no 20.

Products Used:
ACI Griffin with 16" 32 degrees barrel, Rebel delux with 32 degrees 14" barrel, Spyder esprit
Marker Setup: ACI Griffin black, conversion kit, ACI sud-zero 14" barrel,ACI sub-zero 6-stage expansion chamber fore grip.
Strengths: The sonic kit is the best thing I have shot. It never chopps balls.
Weaknesses: This product is expensive and requires attention at the begining.
Review: If you are the person that uses paint this is for you. I was shooting faster than a bushmaster, spyder esprit and a spyder E-99 easily. The thing is bulky but that is fine. With the remote line to a 6&1 pod holder and a 20 ounce it is all bulky. This product is great after the trouble in the begining of adjusting to the new type of power and performance.
Conclusion: This is great buy it! It is worth the money.
