ESU Adapters & Speakers. Other Speakers

We stock the entire ESU speaker range in depth. We also stock selected Hi-Bass speakers for larger locos, and will soon add a new range of top quality low profile “Smartphone style” speakers that really do rock!

(In the ESU range, our particular favourites are the 20×40 and 12x25mm ovals, the really smooth 28mm round and the tiny sugar cube.. but all have their place, the smaller round speakers can also work well when used properly, especially if ”twinned” in custom made sealed enclosures)

While we do not list them individually, we do also have a range of the original 100 ohm speakers for LokSound 1, 2, 3 and 3.5, so if you are in need, ask! (100 ohm Prices are in line with the current 4 or 8 ohm equivalents).

In this area you will also find some useful ESU accessory products – several clever adapters for decoder installation and the excellent ESU Power Pack which will give you lots of well managed power storage for uninterruptable sound decoder power.

Quick sound tip #1: When choosing a speaker for your installation, think carefully and do not always accept the space the loco maker may have made available… Loco makers begrudge the space needed for sound and therefore simply choose the most convenient place that will allow easy installation… whereas in the real world, this may NOT be the ideal place in “sound terms”!

Quick sound tip #2: In sound, we are already really restricted by the tiny speakers we have to use, so “go large” as much as you possibly can… we strongly recommend that you fit the largest possible speaker – or, if space can be found, two of them!

Quick sound tip #3: Sealed enclosures are generally best and we DO mean sealed. A properly sealed box will give the slowest roll off of Bass, the smoothest sound, and it will also extend the speakers power-handling ability. When sealing it, imagine the box is going to be filled with something nasty like anthrax… That is how seriously we mean “sealed”. Not even a pin hole air leak should be left!
