Mine arrived today.

The DCC version sounds a bit thin and raspy considering it's an Alco.
Is there any adjustment or fine tuning that can be made?

The V5 decoders coupled with good speakers will eventually produce nicer sounds. Being Loksound Selects they can be upgraded. Been told that the prepared V40 sounds were loaded on the V5.0 chips and so the sound will not be improved apart from not having the background hiss we are all used to. ESU usually take a year to update their library of sounds. So eventually the problem should be solved.

I had a listen to one the other night. The problem is the speaker does not have enough base.
  DJPeters Assistant Commissioner

The speaker should have a base, but it actually does not have enough bass on it.  Two different words with completely different meanings.

Base .......  
the lowest part or edge of something, especially the part on which it rests or is supported.
"she sat down at the base of a tree"
foundation, bottom, foot, support, prop, stay, stand, pedestal, plinth, rest, bed, substructure

"the base of the tower"




Bass ..........  

    "his bass voice rings out attractivelythe lowest adult male singing voice.
  1. 2.
    denoting the member of a family of instruments that is the lowest in pitch.
    "a bass clarinet"
    Deep-toned, deep, low-pitched, low-toned, low, full-toned, resonant, sonorous, powerful, rumbling, booming, resounding;

    baritone

    "a bass drum"

Hilarious

Does anybody have any commentary on the 'doubleBASE' Custom Twin Peakers currently appearing on eBay for the 442 and other Auscision locos?

'Sounds' like it could be a remedy to a possible lack of bottom end

(and no - I have no affiliation with the product or seller)

You're right, the speaker is the problem. I just tried one that's made for the 442 selling on ebay. What a difference!!

Has anyone fitted an ESU IV to their 442 locomotives. I have an find that only one end of the number boards work. All marker lights work fine. Someone also posted else where if you change to the DCC plug on the loco board number lights work of but marker lights do not work . Anyone worked out CV settings for the lights.

Did the decoder have a sound file number or part number on the box?

I would say the poster asking what project would like to know the part number or anything else that could identify it. Just saying it had a part number does not really help much.

Refer to the ESU website for the 442 project and duplicate the function map for the Lokpilot.

Well a polite I have not got the loco handy or it is not with me at the moment or something like that would not be hard to say though, rather than saying what he did about it having a part number of course it would have a part number to sell it and stock take it.
