Default spot colors


I've made a few logo's in Illustrator CS4 using spot colors (pantone solid coated). The spot colors are displaying correctly in Illustrator when I set the option "overprint preview" on.

I've saved my document as a PDF-file. Still no displaying problems...

But when I open my PDF in Acrobat CS4 (Pro and Reader) the spot colors aren't correctly displayed. I have "simulate overprinting" checked in Acrobat Pro. Still the spot colors look dull.

What can I do? What setting do I have to use in acrobat reader and acrobat pro?
