New rimenough had its last outing on Welsh soil today at the Barry Mrc open day. Layout performed faultlessly though some of the locos obviuosly need a clean! ill be a shame to see it go at the end of the month but things move on! Had lots of nice comments, plenty of people interested and asking abo...

Re: retro fit digital sound.

Unfortunately, there is great misunderstanding about the use of speakers and unfortunately, this is commonly perpetuated in erroneous myths! The use of two identical speaker will NEVER gain anything except perhaps, increased volume. It does NOT improve sound quality. So you are wrong on that part. ...

Re: retro fit digital sound.

With all due respect graham, fitting a speaker without the sound chamber / baffle box will produce far poorer sounds. I think the best option with the backmann 37 iseither 2 x 23 ml speakers plus the sound boxes locted int he Fuel tanks, or a single Base reflex plus a 20 x 40 under the fan. I have p...

Re: Dynamis Problem?
