The Boiler-Barkers are a range of cylindircal systems designed to fit in HO smoke-boxes and boilers. Like all of my systems, extensive testing and listening was performed on dozens of components, culminating in a speaker system that produces a robust chuff with clear whistle and bell sounds. Use them alone or combine them with a tender-mounted speaker.
Fifteen systems are available in diameters of 13mm, 15mm, 17mm, 19mm and 21mm in three lengths of 15mm, 20mm and 25mm.

If used in conjunction with a tender-mounted speaker, be sure to know that speaker's impedence and wiring accordingly. Soundtraxx and TCS are best suited with 8-16Ω speaker loads, while Loksound is happy with 4-8Ω speaker loads. Shown is a series-wiring diagram using a 4Ω tender-mounted speaker along with a Steam-Tweeter or Boiler-Barker.
These are 8Ω, 1W systems and come fully assembled and tested.
