The Amplified Amplifier is a treasure in Pikmin 2, actually a loudspeaker from a stereo, found on the final Sublevel of the Shower Room. Getting it requires fast thinking, as a Ranging Bloyster has to be defeated. After it is brought to the Research Pod, The Ship uses it to create the Mega Tweeter, which increases the range of the leader's whistles drastically.
"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."
"Your voice is weak. It does not carry. No one notices you. If this is true, then this item is for you! Starting today, you are a gym teacher! You will never be ignored again."
The Ship's Dialogue
"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!"
Unlocking the Mega Tweeter increases the range of the whistles of all Captains. The diameter of the visible circle on the screen increases to 150% of its original size, thus almost doubling the area the whistle affects. This makes it easier to call scattered Pikmin to Olimar's side, even when being slow in the Onions.
