Default Fitting TTS Sound to Tornado.

I would like to fit a TTS sound decoder into my Hornby Tornado A1 but there doesn’t appear to be enough room for the speaker inside the main body.

Do I fit the decoder speaker into the tender? If fitting in the tender do I drill suitable holes for the speaker wire and if so where?

What is best practice please? Thanks, Ian.

Thank you, do they come small enough to fit in the smoke stack? Thanks.

I called John at youchoos yesterday. He was extremely helpful and I ordered a 7mm and 8mm suger cube speaker, one of which should fit the Tornado hopefully. I can highly recommend him, he was very helpful and friendly and I will certainly be back for more.
