COMPLETE Rolling ThunderTMReceiver
with Subwoofer Kit for N Scale:
Includes everything you need to play full frequency sounds from your Paragon3
Purchase this kit if you do not already have your own RCA equipped subwoofer.
We are still amazed by the realistic sounds our models can produce. Yet when we
hear a real locomotive, we notice the deep rumbling sounds that even our
advanced model locomotives simply could not reproduce,until
Paragon3 with Rolling ThunderTMsound
and control system for N scale has all the features of its predecessor Paragon2,
but now includes more, higher fidelity sounds than ever before, plus the ability
to reproduce low frequency sounds that give your railroad the feel and depth of
sound of a real locomotive!
does it work?The
speakers in most N scale locomotives will only reproduce sounds above
approximately 600 hertz. The human ear can detect sounds between 20 to 20,000
hertz, and we can feel sounds at even lower frequencies. Many of the sounds real
trains make are in the lower frequencies that models cannot reproduce. This is
due to the tiny speakers which cannot move enough air. To overcome this
shortcoming, Paragon3 incorporates a cutting edge radio transmitter system we
sends the low frequency sounds to a specially designed receiver and subwoofer
under your layout. Since low frequency sounds have a longer wavelength, it is
difficult for the human ear to detect the direction of the source. The result is
that while the locomotive moves around the layout, you can hear the high
frequency sounds coming from the locomotive, and the low frequency sounds from
the subwoofer-- all perfectly synchronized to the motion of the locomotive and
the puffing of the smoke, and your ears will perceive the full array of sound as
coming from the model!
On a large layout, where a locomotive can be very
far from the subwoofer, theRolling
detects the distance and fades out the subwoofer until the locomotive gets close
again, or, if another locomotive is in range, it will connect automatically to
the subwoofer and begin playing its sounds at levels appropriate to its distance
to the subwoofer.
The system consists of the Paragon3 sound system in
the locomotive, with its integralRolling
box under the layout, and a powered subwoofer.
