My second Lok Sound install

Sup all,
     I received 3 Lok Sound 73100 decoders as a gift this year.
So I chose a Milwaukee Road U23B as one of the lucky recipients.
     I used a Soberton 8mmx12mm speaker along with an enclosure by Keystone Details on shapeways.
     I am happy with the sound. There are no keep alives installed.

This sound thing can be very addictive. And very expensive..lol
Adios,
Wyatt

Excellent sound.  Very addictive, now you need more in a consist with different engine files....then it get real bad.

Nice!  The Soberton 8x12 in John LeMerise's Shapeways enclosure is really an excellent combination.

Where did you put the speaker?  I assume on the rear of the chassis?

Edge, I “hear” ya,,,pun intended. I have IMRC deuces that have different sound files. I want to be able to hear the sound of each loco in a consist.
John C, Yup rear of the loco. I even milled out the frame to accept the enclosure.
John L, Your enclosures and the Soberton 8x12 are a match made in heaven,,,at least to me it is. I use the UV liquid plastic “Bondic” to seal and glue the speaker to the enclosure.

Thanks for the comments,
