I had one of these in one of my TXT-2s and Clods.

Very easy to install but the speaker quality was average. I hooked up a battery powered portable speaker by splicing the 3.5mm jack cable to the connector. 

Seriously loud using something like this.

The hobbyking version of this unit is the cheapest and they are all the same just different sticker on the front.

Thanks for the reply, Do you have room in there to put that Bluetooth speaker? Sleeper cab? Also does this sound unit have Bluetooth sound capability? I can't see that anywhere.

No, the speaker has a 3.5 mm jack input so you can use a standard 3.5mm audio cable and splice it to the units horn connectors. 

Loads of space in a TXT/Clod/Bruiser as the speaker is small. I have used 10-20w double speakers before. 

You don't have to use an upgraded speaker. It's simply an option as the standard one in my opinion was poor. I tried alternative horns Inc those used for model railway and none cut it.

 

The best option for sound is one of these https://www.modelsport.co.uk/index.php?product_id=403577&gclid=Cj0KCQjwz6PnBRCPARIsANOtCw0ds2m-LsqXlNoO15dgb8cXlbMWyWdvSOKEqSo61pK3c9qGVQ9k4-oaAiLyEALw_wcB

The ESS One is far superior to the alternatives as a sound module and speaker. 

Then buy a separate LED controller unit with LEDs for £15-£20

Costs more but well worth it.

Thanks for recommending the ESS sound system. How is the speaker on this one? If I go that rout, what would be your recommendation for the LED controller? I was thinking of trying out the Servonaut T24 rock crawler ESC on this.

Quick question regarding the portable speaker you recommended, how do you charge the battery of the speaker with the USB cable? Is there a way to charge it with the car lipo pack?
