Back on topic, I have an iPhone and wouldn’t say the speaker was particularly good.

Sorry HoundDog - I misread the spec. sheet - it says it has smart phone speakers. Perhaps it's an upgrade? BB

Just got round to trying the iPhone speakers.
I have two Class 20s in consist each with a TTS decoder and sugar cube speakers, so today i removed the Sc speaker from one of the 20s and fitted an iphone speaker.
I then ran both of them separately, there is a vast difference in sound, i then ran them together and the one with the iphone speaker dominates the sound.
I still have a spare IP speaker so i am buying a TTS decoder for one of my 37s and will try it in that.
keep you all posted how it works out.

Its important to check the ohm of the speaker as TTS and Soundtraxx can only take 8ohm. I don't have any other make of sound decoders other than Loksound and Hornby's TTS so don't know about other makes.
For my esu loksound decoders I fit a double i-phone speakers rated at 4ohm (class 66 and 37s).
For my Hornby TTS and Soundtraxx decoders I fit a single i-phone speaker rated at 8ohm (class 66, 67 and 60s).
I have replaced my sugar cubes with I-phones as IMHO they give better sound and so easy to fit because of there size.

ESU have marketed a newish concept with user configurable enclosures for their single and double speakers e.g. http://www.esu.eu/en/products/accessori ... -speakers/

To give a sense of scale this is a single 15x11mm speaker.

Today i took delivery of a TTs decoder for a Class 37, i first tried the loco with the speaker supplied with the decoder and recorded it, i then replaced the speaker with an iPhone speaker and there is a vast difference.
Not tried an iPhone speaker on my other 37s fitted with Zimo decoders yet, but speakers on order.
