Janbouli's Home Layout The Kannewton & CC
« on: September 11, 2014, 09:22:49 AM »
I suppose when starting on the second room part of my layout is a good time to start a thread on my layout here. If anyone not familiar with my layout wants to see more of it before this you can go to http://www.janbouli.com  or http://kitforums.com/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=5114

My layout rooms are finally at a temperature to work in again.

Started with the LED lighting in the 2nd room, just experimenting how many strips of LED I need to have enough layout lighting and enough to take photographs without extra lighting.






What do you guys think? Myself , I am satisfied with this as layout lighting but think for photography I need 1 more strip.
I love photo's, don't we all.

I'd forgotten about your thread on the other forum Jan. I just checked it out and I really liked the way you were doing the landscaping, the grasses look terrific!

The Athearn Challenger with Tsunami Sound is a great steam locomotive. I have six on the roster of the "new" JJJ&E. The Athearn "Big Boy" is also a fantastic steamer. Have fun programming the sound and running your new "Challenger".

Janbouli:

I've been working with Soundtraxx sound decoders in N scale for a long time Below are some CV values for the Equalizer that will enhance the sound performance of your 'Challenger" Soundtraxx decoder. You can also use these values in other N scale locomotives that that have Soundtraxx decoders.

CV 153=   7
CV 154=   0
CV 155=   0
CV 156=240
CV 157=200
CV 158=180
CV 159=120
CV 160=120

Have fun with it. ;) :)

Bob,
 
Will those CV values work in HO as well? Inquiring minds and all that.

Tom:

Those values should work in HO Soundtraxx sound decoders. I'm sure the HO Soundtraxx decoders have an equalizer. The difference in the sound will amaze you after you plug in those numbers.

Let me know how it works. BTW, you can modify those values slightly. Those values do work extremely well in N scale. ;) :)

My first youtube video , it's of an Athearn Challenger in N-scale comparing the sound of the Tsunami Decoder before and after programming equalizer CV's

I know this is a repeat, but I still watch and enjoy both forums!
This sounds so much better after programming the equalizer CV's! (like I know what the chit that means!)
I'm just lucky to build an old fashioned DC layout (well, work on it occasionally - but you boys are pushin'
my buttons lately!)

The "Challenger" sounds great after you programmed in those equalizer values Jan. ;)
