Are you talking/mentioning the new Soundtraxx sound car that has been in recent editions of Model Railroader Magazine and Model Railroad Hobbyist Magazine, etc? If not, then I apologize for adding confusion to your thread. It just sounds identical to the new sound cars from Soundtraxx.

What we need is young folk in the hobble with cash to spend and not just the old Geri atrics that think they know every thing.
If this is about Soundtraxx Sierra's old system then I apologize for "confusion" (and I'm not that old). Then you may be right about the 11 volt thing. But if bdp3wsy is talking about Soundtraxx's new sound car, which by the initial post it does, it is for all scales. Here's the link for the FAQ from Soundtraxx, first thing discussed is the max voltage being 21 volts. http://www.soundtraxx.com/dsd/soundcar/faq.php
If you know more about this 21 volt / 11 volt max steady thing, then how come Soundtraxx says 21 volts max? They mention nothing about a max steady voltage.
