Loudspeakers for great sound

 

 

Sound decoders

 

 

 

 

 

 

A very important part of the LokSound system is the speaker. Therefore, we only use specially developed loudspeakers geared to the sound decoder. Here we recommend the following old saying, the bigger the speaker, the better the sound. As such, we offer loudspeakers in various sizes, one of them will surely fit into your loco.

Another crucial accessory is the sound chamber. This helps create the necessary sound pressure for the speakers membrane and comes with most loudspeakers.

If you are not sure about which loudspeaker fits into your loco we generally recommend to open the loco and measure the dimensions with a ruler.

Since model railway manufacturers often tend to change (tacitly) the inner modifications of their locos we are not able to make recommendations in general. Therefore rely on your own observations!

Note:  These speakers must NOT be used with the old LS v3.5 decoders

NEW Modular speaker baffle set for a single Sugar Cube speaker

With our new modular speaker baffle set suitable for a single miniature speaker you can easily assemble your tailor made speaker baffle for two miniature speakers. Both diameter and height can be individually adapted to suit your needs. Even with one speaker the audio pressure is considerably better than with one circular speaker intended for these dimensions.

The popular sugar cube speaker 11x15mm and 8 Ohm impedance is supplied with a sealed mounting plate. First select one of the three base frames subject to the type of speaker you want to assemble, namely a circular frame with either 20mm or 23mm diameter or a rectangular type with 16x25mm.

After you have inserted the speaker into the base frame you may now determine the height of the speaker baffle. The minimum height is 6mm, which can be raised to 8mm, 9mm, 10mm, 11mm or 13mm by adding up to three intermediate frames. The set contains two 2mm high and one 3mm high intermediate frame. They can easily be fixed with some glue suitable for plastic materials.

The higher the speaker baffle, the better the bass fidelity. It certainly pays off to utilize the entire space available.
