from train set #55042) with ESU LokSound XL
This page shows installing LokSound XL
decoder & sound effect circuit for BR80 Steam locomotive(from
train set #55042 train set).
- This is a 'trial version'. I will
developed more good arrangement and add some gimmick in
Tasks of the project:
- Install a LokSound
XL to BR80 steam locomotive.
- Install must be
done without change of exterior, include cab
interior(=what you see must not change).
- In this version, I
test a character of LokSound.
- The LokSound XL installed in
- Original c95 decoder is naturally
- No circuit cooling system.
- Speaker set at front of motor.
- LokSound XL is
(temporally) installed in speaker box.
- Speaker is non-ESU
8-ohm/ 0.3W/ 40mm dia conventional speaker.
- A 24-ohm 1/2W
resistor is connected in series to speaker circuit to
match impedance of speaker to genuine ESU speaker.
- For better
programming stability (of CVs), there is a cut-out switch
for speaker in under side of speaker box.
<Speaker box /Acoustics>
- Speaker box made
by 1.2mm thickness styrene plastic plate.
- Original boiler
cover used as upper cover of speaker box.
- Drawing of speaker
- The genuine sound of original BR80
loco by Mr.Thomas Vollering , can be download from ESU web site.
- I am now doing
many test and trial for LokSound XL with this locomotive.
- Final arrangement
will be changed by some technical reasons.
