Questions about LokSound V4.0

  • fold faq The supplied speaker is too big!
    07.03.2012

    I want my steam locomotive retrofitted with a LokSound  decoder. Unfortunately, the supplied speakers is to large. Can I install a smaller speaker?

    Of Course. For all LokSound V4.0, and V4.0 micro LokSound we offer a large selection of matching speakers with the correct impedance of 4-8 ohms. Each of these speakers is appropriate. You should always use the most largest speakers. The larger the speaker, the better the sound.

     

    Note:
    All loudspeakes, which are delivered in a doublepack, can be connected in series or parallel. They can also be used individually, since every single loudspeaker has an impendance of 8 Ohms. The series connection represents a total impendance of 16 Ohms.

    I would like to connect a Hall sensor (resp. PowerPack) to my LokSound V4.0 decoder. However, the connection drawings in the manual (second edition) do not match with my decoder. What shall I do?

    In 2012, the main board of LokSound V4.0 decoders was redesigned for production optimization and two more soldering connections have been added to the underside of the decoder (there used to be 5, now there are 7 connections). All LokSound V4.0 decoders will be converted step by step to the new hardware revision in 2012. There will be no relevant changes for you as a customer.

    Please find here the correct connection scheme for the Hall sensor, PowerPack or part capacitor:

    What are the load control values for PIKO locomotives?

    To set the correct load control values for PIKO locomotives you may follow the values given down below:

    CV  2 = Value 3

    CV52 = Value 20

    CV53 = Value 80

    CV54 = Value 30

    CV55 = Value 30

    CV56 = Value 255

    The new values mentioned here will, of course, replace the previous ones and need to be used from firmware version 4.3.8991 onwards.

  • fold faq Is it possible to use loudspeakers from older decoder versions with the LokSound V4.0?
    02.02.2011

    No, since the impedance of the loudspeaker has changed it is not possible to use older loudspeakers. Please use only loudspeakers which are specially designed for LokSound V4.0 decoders.
