    <P>Just got my beloved GP9 back and had the old sound decoder swapped out for the Tsunami sound decoder. </P>
    <P>All I can say is WOW!!</P>
    <P>Finally I have a Geep that really sounds like a Geep. With the right tweak from the equalizer you can really get a very high quality sound from such a small speaker. Word of caution though is not to over drive the speaker as it can become damaged from too high an output.</P>
    <P>This decoder is awesome when configured using Decoder Pro. Only took me about 1 hour to speed calibrate it to my P2k RS18 QSI loco. </P>
    <P>I've been thinking about the redoing my RS18 as I think the sound out of it doesn't sound like and MLW/Alco should. </P>
    <P>I also had my SD40 done with the EMD 645 Tsunami&nbsp;decoder and am as happy as a pig in mud.<IMG class=inlineimg alt=0 src="http://www.zealot.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif" border=0 smilieid="44"><IMG class=inlineimg alt=0 src="http://www.zealot.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_mrgreen.gif" border=0 smilieid="44"></P>

    Anyone else have first impressions of the new Tsunami decoders?
    How did you program it?
    With thanks,
