Click below for a sample of the V8 race engine sound with straight cut gear changes. NOTE: This recording was created using the standard speaker that comes included with the sound module, the quality of the sound you hear will depend very strongly on the speakers on your computer and may not give an accurate representation of the high quality sound you get from the digiSOUND system. This is just to give an idea of the sound you can expect.
Detailed specification of module and speaker
Module power output: 1.5 Watts RMS @ 7.2V (4 ohms), distortion typically 0.1%
5 Watts RMS @ 12V (4 ohms), distortion typically 0.1%
Speaker rating: 1.0 Watts RMS (8 ohms), It is possible to run 2 speakers in parallel (7.2V application)
The supplied speaker is 1.0 Watt RMS, 8ohms. These are for use on 7.2V installations. Up to 2 speakers can be run in parallel (See image of 2 speakers mounted in a short course truck bodyshell, this is the best way to mount 1 or 2 speakers in your RC car bodyshell as it gives the speakers the best chance of creating a realistic sound with bass - Please note, only 1 speaker is supplied with the sound modue system, additional speakers are available) taking full advantage of the amplifier power at 7.2V. If you decide to run your sound module at 12V you will need to purchase a more powerful speaker or speakers due to the increased power available from the amplifier when running at 12.0V
Notes on speaker performance.
The 50.0mm speaker included with your module is waterproof so it is safe to use outside, you should always install your speaker into a suitable enclosure (your lexan bodyshell) to ensure the best power handling, frequency and bass response.
