Mine seems plenty loud actually had to turn it down, used Legacy remote for that. It was smoking real good for a while but no smoke now, plenty of fluid, smoke switch on under cab, set remote on smoke high.

Chuffs but no smoke anymore.

Joe..I did notice it was a spitter when there was smoke

I agree the locomotive is a spitter but smoke performance isn't that great.  But running on the club layout over the weekend, it was a struggle to hear the locomotive.  The K-line pacific I also had with me that day was almost twice as loud.  The legacy sd70ace i just got in the spring is much much louder too.

While the volume in the B6 overall is going to be a bit lower than normal, it shouldn't be significantly quieter than a standard Legacy engine such as the SD70Ace you mentioned. It's a small speaker enclosure in a small tender, so you don't get the lower bass levels with something a bit bigger. But if you feel it is a significant volume reduction, you may want to have it looked at.

FYI, the new Legacy electronics cannot support a physical volume potentiometer. The volume level can only be controlled by remote (Bluetooth or TMCC controller). Not having pot support was one of the tradeoffs we had to make to have room for newer features in the electronics.

Thanks for the reply Dave.  That explains why I couldn't find the pot lol.

The new legacy boards have connection for a battery or is that gone too? @Dave Olson
