This article is about the small loudspeaker that increases the whistle's range. For the large megaphone that allows the whistle to pluck Pikmin, see Professional Noisemaker.

The Amplified Amplifier (真空波動スピーカー?, lit.: "Vacuum Wave Speaker") is a treasure in Pikmin 2 that unlocks an upgrade, the Mega Tweeter, when collected. It is actually a loudspeaker. The treasure is found in the Shower Room's final (7th) sublevel.

The Amplified Amplifier is held by the boss of the cave, the Ranging Bloyster, so a battle is required to retrieve it. Bringing it back to the Research Pod prompts the Hocotate ship to create the Mega Tweeter, which considerably increases the range of the leaders' whistles. Like some other treasures, if the player defeats the Ranging Bloyster, but does not have enough Pikmin to carry the Amplified Amplifier, which requires the strength of 20 Pikmin, it will change weight to match the player's army.

Note that due to how sublevel generation works, it is possible for the Ranging Bloyster to not spawn, making it impossible to obtain this treasure, as detailed here and here.


Ship's dialogs

Processing... How odd. The gooey creature dissolved, leaving this curious item behind.

It appears to be coated in slime. Are you sure you want to collect this? ...Absolutely sure?

You'll toss just about anything in my hold. It would be nice if you cleaned occasionally.

This shape is well suited for the emission and amplification of sound waves. A moment, please.

I shall use this as the final part in my new sound equipment. The Mega Tweeter is done!

Captain Olimar, this device has increased the acoustic range of your whistle!

Olimar's journal

Today, we searched a deep underground structure that was completely covered in tile! I have no idea what it was originally intended for, but I've decided to call it the Shower Room. Deep within, I clashed with a sleek bug that coughed up this conical curiosity.

Sales pitch

Your voice is weak. It does not carry. No one notices you. If this is true, then this is the item for you! Starting today, you are a gym teacher! You will never be ignored again.
