Testing speakers
« on: March 23, 2018, 06:11:31 PM »
I want to experiment with some speakers and enclosure designs before committing to putting them into a model and wiring them up. Do you guys use some sort of test rig to see how speakers perform? What does it look like?

I use a test bed from ESU. Their decoder tester.
I modified it by adding a spring loaded terminal connector to the speaker cables. That way I can easily test different speakers and enclosures.
The ESU tester is a really nice thing to have, as I can test all decoder functions before installing it.
