Lionel Legacy SD-70Ace low rpm volume level
Posted by highroller on Wednesday, March 15, 2017 10:13 AM

Is it normal for a Lionel Legacy SD-70Ace to have a much lower engine rpm rev volume level than a TMCC SD-70 or a Lionmaster SD-90 ???  In comparison, the sound of the Legacy is about half of the TMCC loco at max volume pot/cab-2 level. Strangely, the TowerCom/radio communication seems to be pretty much the same level on both the TMCC and Legacy locos.

I tried a jumper on the potentiometer but didn't see any difference and I have no other Legacy to compare.

Thanks

Got a response from Lionel, I quote "The sounds on the Legacy engine are likely to be lower for the RPMS compared to TMCC. About 2/3 level is likely".
