    Default Loksound 50326 speaker

    I have 3 Loksound 50326 speakers to use with Tsunami2 sound decoders. Has anyone used these speakers and how did you install them?

    I believe that if you are installing more than one speaker per each decoder, just make sure to keep the resistance above the decoder’s recommended output. For example, if the decoder specifies 8 ohms or greater, if you wire two 8 ohm speakers in series, you’ll be at 16 ohms, which should be fine; but if they’re wired in parallel, you wind up with 4 ohms and could damage the decoder. See: http://www.sbs4dcc.com/tutorialstips...ispeakers.html.

    Those of you with more engineering experience (not the locomotive kind) please confirm that I am correct.

    Good luck!

    I'll be doing well just to fit 1 decoder and speaker in the tender, considering the motor is in there as well.
    But thanks for the advice @danb
