Bachmann HO RS-3 DCC Sound Installation

Posted by on Jul 13, 2015 in Tips Decoders and Installations, Tony's Tips |

This installation features the ESU LokSound V4.0 sound decoder and custom fabricated enclosures with SuperSonic Mini speakers. We use the same speaker and custom enclosures in nearly all of our N scall installs.


Two factors lead us to favor the ESU LokSound decoder in many HO and nearly all N scale sound installations: small size & industry best motor control. This does not mean that the sound file quality is insignificant. In fact, it’s very good, but if the decoder doesn’t fit & the loco performance is jumpy, we’re not having any fun.


The oversized enclosures are not a stock item but can be custom fabricated based on dimensions of the locomotive.

We show the shell modification which allowed just a little bit more vertical speaker size.
