    Doug, how big is the speaker?

    I would think that any way you tackle it, it's going to have to be in the tender somewhere... what else is in there that you have to work around?... bolsters, pickup wires, ballast???

    Any chance of a pic?

    There is a good image of the tender at: http://www.nscalesupply.com/NScaleSupply.html

    Go to the catalog then Model Power. It look simple as install go but I can't visualize the speaker install. Sure it will go in the coal load but what about the enclosure? I haven't measureed yet but I think a 3/4" round speaker will fit. There is also an oval that will fit. Is oval better than round?
    Thanks

    Doug, I know what a Vandy looks like, I was after a pic of it disassembled / opened up, to see what it has inside that might get in the way... just because the outside dimensions make it seem like the internal volume is sufficient, there can be any number of "things" in there to hinder an installation... there could be ribs for strength, the bolster may be on the inside, there could be a big strip of lead to ballast it, brass strips for power pickups, wires, etc, etc...

    Round or oval will make no difference sound wise for this application... what ever fits best...

    "enclosure"? what are you talking about here? the tender is going to be your enclosure :-)

    A pic of all your bits laid out on the bench will help us see what you're working with...
