Digitizing Roco 43012 - Speaker and Motor Wiring

The ESU Loksound 4.0 decoder comes with a round 4 Ohm speaker. While the speaker is just small enough to fit into the machine room hood of the VT11.5, I have been struggling with mounting it in a way that the locomotive remains serviceable. Eventually I gave up and ordered a ESU 50321 "sugar cube" speaker. It fits much better, and sound quality is outstanding, especially considering its size.

I spent some more time organizing and routing cables between power pickups and decoder. It's getting close for a test run.
