A very important part of the LokSound system is the speaker. Therefore, we only use specially developed loudspeakers geared to the sound decoder. Here we recommend the following old saying, the bigger the speaker, the better the sound. As such, we offer loudspeakers in various sizes, one of them will surely fit into your loco. Should there not be enough space, you can also install the speaker in a ‘ghost waggon’ directly behind the loco.
