Wow, you have made me a believer in sound but, like Alan, I like the fifties so until Tim Ring provides us with the appropriate files. Or, I could cheat and put SD40 sound in my GP 7 & 9s. Only two beings would know, God and me and I won’t tell.

A lot more depth from those speakers. Thanks for the comparison, Kevin.

My Co-Eval equipped MLW M636s blow my iPhone 4S speaker equipped C630Ms out of the water. These speakers are very impressive.

JT is very quick to respond to inquiries, and if you get a chance to read all his white papers on his website, you'll see he's put an ton of work into providing the model RR fraternity with mind-blowing speakers!

Now to win the lottery to be able to purchase all the speakers I need.

He is very responsive.  Shipping was fast and the orders I've placed have all been perfect.  I highly recommend working with him.  He had a hiccup there for a while when his supply of speakers dried up, and he had to go looking for a comparable speaker that had the same qualities.  Glad he found some!

WOW! The difference is night and day. Bet it sounds even better in person.

Operating a railroad with exclusively 1950's FM opposed piston road power, sadly sound is not an option. That is unless Tim can sneak onto an old nuclear sub with his recorder.  :D

It does sound better in person.  There is only so much that my non-professional mic can pick up, and I didn't do any audio editing besides volume gain.  In person the sound is a bit deeper and you can really tell the difference between the high's and low's.  I can tell that there are two parts of the prime mover making sound....the deeper sound of the prime mover itself, and the higher pitched turbo whine.  These sounds are completely distinct with the S3 (Scale Sound Systems) speaker and they have totally different rhythms and cadences.....I wish I could explain that better.  It's remarkable to listen to.  It's actually kind of fun to just sit and listen to the locomotives idle now.

That is AMAZING!

This gives you a whole new appreciation for how nice Railpro's new sounds really are.  Compare this against Loksound or Soundtraxx's EMD 710G3C-T2 and it's night and day.  Railpro's GE 7FDL-16 Modern is even more impressive.....the Scale Sound Systems speakers allow you to hear the deep rumble and subtle sounds that other manufacturers lack.  Music to my ears!

For those interested, here's a video I put together showing the difference between a stock speaker (which I thought sounded quite good) and a Scale Sound Systems speaker.


As you can tell, the difference is profound.  I didn't realize how much of the prime mover's sound was missing when playing through a standard speaker.  The locomotive now sounds and feels more alive.

The speaker is a Coeval 4 Ohm version.

Talk about instant death if you touch that beast. I run a 1 Farad cap in my truck audio system as instant backup for the sub amp and it makes me nervous to be around when it's charged  :o

I'm not a huge Facebook guy either, but I do belong to a few special MR groups, mostly for a couple nice large layouts, scenery, weathering, etc.  I am always surprised at the number of views our local model railroad club gets when we use Facebook to post an upcoming event.  Its a big machine and it helps get the word out.  I could easily see where a new Railpro convert would find the Facebook page before he/she would find our forum.

There is a way to "pin" a post so its always at the top of the Facebook page when any opens it up.  For example- look at Mike Deverell's layout Facebook page and his trackplan is permanently at the top.  If Campbell can pin his post referring to our forum so its always the top post it would be helpful.  Otherwise it just gets shoved further and further down the pages as time goes by.
