YouChoos Resouces
Bachmann OO Class 47 diesel

Example 1: Single Speaker, no modifications

Kit: Zimo MX644D with Zimo LS26X20X08-1W Dumbo speaker, independent cab lights, crew, SuperCap6800uf stay-alive

We will be providing independent control of the cab lights, so we solder our rear cab wires direct to the feet of the 21pin plug (FA3/AUX4). The model already provides separate control of the cab lights together via FA2/AUX3, so we just need to bypass this for the rear cab light. Brown wire is our -VE for the rear cab light.

Example 1

For the rear cab light, it is easy to remove the wires and swap for our new wire.

Example 1 Example 1

The MX644D, small Dumbo and SuperCap all fit in quite easily.

Example 2: Dual Speaker, some modifications to fans

Kit: MX644D; Zimo Dumbo LS40X22X09-2W; LifeLink with 17000uF SuperCap

A little more ambitious (but only a little more!) we go with a dual Dumbo speaker instead, which requires the fan assembly to be removed and the fans themselves to be glues back into position.

Example 2

This minor effort is well worth it for the extra depth and volume achieved.
