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, the sound includes a start up, idle, up to full speed, back to idle, a quick blast on the horn then shutdown.

Notes on speaker performance.
The 75.0mm speaker included with your module is waterproof so it is safe to use in your model boat, you should always install your speaker into a suitable enclosure (somewhere in the upper surface of the hull) to ensure the best power handling, frequency and bass response.
Speaker systems with a broader frequency response which include tweeters and larger woofers are available as optional extras, please contact Mtroniks for details.
