Well you've got loads of options and I'm sure all will come with a 8 pin plug. If you want to buy a 'kit' the TCS Wow Sound is a good option, otherwise look at the new Tsunami. You've got plenty of room in there so fitting a speaker shouldn't be a problem although imho a sugar cube is as good as any, you could even install two.

If TCS don't do a Gevo go for a Tsunami, they're excellent decoders. They're more of an effort to get running smoothly than a Loksound though.

I'll throw in my vote for Loksound. I've got about 50 of them in a variety of engines and just love how they run, not to mention the Full Throttle feature which is great fun to play with.

yeah def thinking loksound is the route im going the horn sounds a thousand times better than the soundtraxx and so does the prime mover sounds just biding my time till i can get one next pay day and the spakers as well to go into this bad boy this loco is begging to get some run time clocked on her haha. the downside to having a dcc system with no abbility to run dc locos lol are there any tips or tricks you guys can give me to installing a sound decoder thanks lfb.
