Well I made the big junp into DCC the other day. I went with a NCE Power Cab. Picked up two decoders ( hard wire). Installed them into two older Atlas GP35 units. I got them both running, no problems. :thumb: So I thought it was time to try a sound unit. I installed a LokSound decoder into a Kato Mikado unit. What a tght fit. 5 lbs of stuff into a 2 lb box. I had to put the decoder and the speaker into the tender. Got her done- after many hours of fitting and such. The thing works- sound quailty not so good, Bell is ok, whistle not so good. Chuff noise when running is very hard to here. Need more volume! The randum compressor noise and such is OK. Still looking to get more sound out but have done every thing that I know to do with the size of speaker you can get into N scale. Now onto the real problem- DCC simpler than DC? Not for me! When I had blocks and I had a problem I was able to find the problem and fix it with out to much of a problem. DCC never able to see what is the problem- every thing is in a black box with some numbers you enter in to make some think work? I have a second cab that I got so I could run two locos at the same time. CAB -14e by NCE I have yet to make it work- can't make the any of the three locos run on the second cab. Any one out there with a NCE system using a second cab? Need help in making the CAb-04E work Thanks in advance.
