Kit: MX648 hard-wired; IceCube18x13x11-1W speaker; SACC16 + SuperCap17000; Nano Firebox
...and another example, this time with some more detailed photos of the installation...
Body off, reveals the 8pin DCC socket, which we have to remove to make extra space for more kit (if we went with a smaller
speaker and the MX648 only then we could simply plug in for a really easy installation).
We grinding the platform where the 8pin socket was to make it flat, and insulate carefully with electrical tape. The SuperCap
then sits here, with SACC16 PCB on top, with decoder.
Speaker (not actually shown here), slots into boiler, secured with some Black Tack.
