FT-817 speaker replacement

FT-817 speaker replacement

After I found a video on YouTube about replacing the original speaker from the FT817 by a MASSOTH 8241020 speaker I was surprised about the difference. So I have ordered the massoth speaker at my local modelrailroad supply shop and made the mod my self. And I have to emit it was worth it. To bad the video didn't really catch the increase in dynamic and detail. For example turning the volume way up didn't give any distortion though the camera couldn't handle it..
