Adrian Posted March 9, 2022 Share Posted March 9, 2022 Over the last few months, I've bought four class 141/181s and as I love having sound, I wanted to fit DCC sound chips and speakers to each. I hadn't fit speakers before to anything so this was a new challenge, even just getting the body shell off the loco was something I had to look up. I also found two good posts on this topic on this forum https://irishrailwaymodeller.com/topic/8434-dcc-sound-for-locos-in-2020/ and https://irishrailwaymodeller.com/topic/4568-dcc-sound-speaker-comparison/ to get me started and give some idea of what needed to be done. After testing a bunch of different speaker types (watch the tests here if you like) I eventually settled on a combination of a sugarcube with as deep an enclosure as I could fit into the loco and a megabass speaker which just about fit, with some modification of the chassis. I never found a start to finish video tutorial on how to do this, so decided to create one and add it on here - hopefully it helps someone else in the future 4 2 2 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
