Kit: Zimo MX658N18 (Next18 DCC) with PowerCube9
Bachmann's first OO model with genuine plug-and-play DCC sound using Next18 and cube speaker. This is how easy it should be!

Unscrew the lid where the cube speaker needs to go... everything provided pre-wired from the factory (thank-you Bachmann - great design!)
The black box is just a filler which we remove to make room for the cube. The speaker must have spring clips (not solder pads) as the springs
are needed to make contact with the electrical pads on the little circuit board.
