First, the couplers must be removed in order to lift the body up and off from the chassis.


For DC factory models, the 21-MTC DC board is removed and the decoder fitted to the 21 pin plug on the model's lighting board.


For DCC models, which come with a LokSound 5 decoder, the next step is remove the factory speaker, which uses a 11x15mm driver.


The DCCSound speaker is positioned in place and sits o top of the lighting PCB.

The two wires are then soldered to either the speaker tabs on the decoder or to the speaker tabs on the lighting board.
