Modelling Tip Of The Day – 30

This Modelling Tip Of The Day is an ongoing series, in which we’ll be posting a modelling tip that may be of use to the newbie right up to the seasoned modeller.

Today’s tip is:

Speakers Upgrade

On DCC Sound Fitted locomotives you can improve the sound & tone by upgrading the speaker. Try different size speakers to see what works & sounds best to you. What may work best for particular loco sound may not sound as good on other loco sounds. DCC sound specialists like Legoman Biffo (Yes that is his name), Digitrains, DCC Supplies amongst many others supply a range of various types & sizes of speakers. Speakers like Bass Reflex, Earth Mover, Zimo Dumbo can vastly improve the loco sound. It’s worth visiting a DCC sound specialist to hear & have the different speakers/sounds demonstrated.

Happy modelling.
