Interesting to see the install in the class 31 on the video uses a 20x40 speaker but at the bottom of the pages the pictures show a 20mm round speaker ? All the ones I've seen and worked on have had small speakers not sealed into a enclosure and I've found that changing them to the biggest I can fit in the loco helps to improve the sound, but these sound files do lack base.
Still a nice cheaper way to add sound to your layout.

The A3 sound chip has been dispatched from Hattons, so hopefully I'll get it within the next few days.

I'll try and print an enclosure for the supplied speaker and fit in the tender of the Bachmann V2

It's arrived



The speaker on this version includes a speaker enclosure - the enclosed leaflet states some models (but not all) are supplied with an enclosure.

The enclosure is approx 5mm deep, and has a full height hole for the speaker wires to pass through. I will block this with blue tack to see if it improves the sound. Otherwise it will provide useful dimensions for a diy enclosure - any ideas on an optimal size.
