Default Sound decoder speaker

I have just purchased an ESU Loksound V4 decoder for my Bachmann class 40 and I am disappointed with the sound produced from the speaker supplied. I have 2 other locos with sound decoders and the sound they produce is first class but the ESU one sounds really tinny. I would appreciate any advice regarding which speaker I should be looking to buy. Thanks

Mod note: Thread moved to DCC forum section.

Not done a 40, but I have sound in 3 class 37's.

I use a Zimo 40x20 in the standard speaker locaition and another small Zimo Sugar Cube in the nose. I then put a Capacitor in the other nose.

Make sure you test the polarity of the nose one, one way sounds a lot better, the other looses bass.

They are also wired in Pararlel, the single speaker Dumbo's work so much better with the additional Cube speaker.

If you can get a Twin Dumbo in the Class 40 all the better, you won't need the addidional Cube with that either.
