Freightliner 70001 gets the DCC Sound treatment today...
MX644D 21pin sound decoder is easy enough. The narrow body means we are limited on speaker choice, so opt for a pair of Zimo
Dumbo LS18X13X13-1Ws in the provided recess, which fit comfortably and connected in parallel sound really great. We attempt to
include the sample 470uF/25V capacitor for stay-alive, but this proves just too big preventing the body from going back on. The
loco runs well anyway, so the cap is removed.
Back together, a very simple install, and looking good exiting the tunnel!
Kit: MS440D/C with IceCube28X18X08 speaker, 17000uF SuperCap
Revisiting this model now, and making use of the latest Zimo MS440 sound decoder and one of our IceCube speakers. This is a
really simple install.
Plenty of space for the IceCube speaker, and we happily found room for a SuperCap17000uF for stay-alive in the roof too.
Cab slides up on this one so we can pop a driver in the rear cab too.
