Hornby OO LSWR S15

Example 1: Hornby OO LSWR S15 - easy kit

Kit: MX648R; IceCube18X13X10-1W speakear

Plenty of room in the S15 tender for an easy DCC Sound install, so we'll do that first, for those who don't want to make any modifications...

Example 1 Example 1

Example 1

Here is our MX648R sound decoder and single IceCube18X13X10-1W speaker, plugged straight in and secured with a bit of BlackTack. The speaker sits down in the well and the decoder tucked in next to it.

Example 1 Example 1

Simple, and actually surprisingly loud too, so a very good choice if you don't want to do any surgery..

Example 2: Hornby S15 with bigger speaker and SuperCap stay-alive

Kit: MX645 hard-wired; Dual IceCube28X18X10-2W; SuperCap17000uF Stay-Alive

However, there is potential for a much bigger speaker, and a decent SuperCap for stay-alive is always welcome, so we remove the 8pin DCC socket, and hard-wire an MX645, connected with our 17000uF SuperCap, and a dual IceCube28X18X10-2W.

Example 2 Example 2

Example 2

The SuperCap is covered with Kapton tape and stuck down in the well.

Example 2 Example 2

Example 2 Example 2

The speaker is secured above the capacitor with a little BlackTack, and the decoder toward the rear at an angle so it doesn't get in the way of the retaining screw column.

Example 2 Example 2

No modification required - tender top just fits straight on top. WIth some minor modifications to the coal slope, we could get something even more substantial in, but it isn't necessary - this is a very impressive sounding setup!
