8 Ohm Bass
enhancement speakers (16mm x 35mm speaker
(Old part number: DCCS02-08)
8 Ohm, 0.6 watt. Case size: 20mm x 40mm x 8mm.
Speakers are the most important part of any loco sound
project (other than an authentic sound of course!). We ask a lot of our small
speakers, expecting great sound bass response from a speaker that we wouldn't
use as a tweeter in our home sound systems!
As sound developers and modellers ourselves we have been
looking for ways of improving the bass response within the limited space
available in a small loco chassis. We started with the speakers, which are the
foundation stone of the system, and set our objectives: Improved performance, in minimal space,
with minimal price overhead!
The result is our new range of Bass enhanced speakers, to
complement our full range of 8 ohm and loksound compatible bass reflex speakers, all of which have been custom
designed to enhance the low frequency sound which makes up a large percentage of
the spectrum of locomotive sound (for either Diesel or Steam).
DCC Supplies have worked in conjunction with one of the
worlds largest micro-speaker manufacturers to produce these speakers, which will considerably improve sound
reproduction over the 'traditional' sealed speaker design. (See technical
Initially available in two sizes, both with attached
wires. This unit is based on a 35 x 16 speaker, and measures 40mm x 20mm
overall, and is a super slim 8mm deep.
