I have a bass enhanced speaker in my 201.Its easy

enough,when you remove the old speaker you will need

to look for + and - on the PCB to solder in wires for new

speaker.there is not as much room in a 201 body for a

larger speaker than you think.The main PCB takes up a

lot of space and only for that a bass reflex could have been

used.If you go back to my work bench to page one,I think

I have some photos there of the speaker in the 201 body.

There is a difference all right,but bass reflex would be the

Real deal,far more bang for your buck.I have seen a bass

reflex in the Murphy 071,but this takes a fair bit of work and

the speaker will protrude into the cab.My a39 has a BR speaker

and it really suits the a class engine sound and very pound

without distortion.

Guys' date=' Gareth from the ModelShop recommended replacing the fitted speaker in the 201's with a bass enhanced one. Has anybody here done that? I'm just curious if there is any "major surgery" required to make it fit![/quote']

 

Yeah I have to get that fitted at some stage too. I think the horn's meant to be the main thing, sounds very buzzy on mine and yours without the speaker!

IHMO the difference is Minimal and barely Detectable, I Have fitted a 201 with Bass Enhanced speaker and have one without. I feel not much is noticeable between the 2. Changed a speaker in a Kernow class 205 as well and the sound basically was the same. Might be my hearing though being around jets n stuff over the years.

It really benefits locos that have a real base rumble in real life. For instance, I've heard a Deltic and a Class 56 with bass reflex and it puts them on a whole other level. I think the one loco here that would really benefit from them would be the 071s. The 201s are much quieter and the big silencer seems to take the bass out of the sound.
