DCC Sound Speaker Comparison – make your locos sound better

Adding sound chips to your locos makes a world of difference to a layout but not all model train speakers are created equal as Richard Croft from Road and Rails finds out.

I’m a huge fan of Adam Savage, both because of his model making (he’s worked on models several big Sci-Fi films) but also because of his Tv series MythBusters and at Tested.com, where he applies tests and review products and ideas. It’s great to see him put things through their paces.

It’s for the same reasons that I like Richard Croft’s video below where he rigs up and tests various speakers for DCC model train sound systems. Rather than just talking about the different speakers, Richard has wired them up to a sound chip and tried them out on camera so you can actually hear what they sound like.

If you’re thinking of getting a DCC sound chip, watch the video first and then decide which speaker to get.
