BigSound P8 Additional Information

The BigSound P8 builds upon and includes all features of previous Phoenix sound systems. It differs from the BigSound PB11 primarily in that it can operate on DCC or RC/battery but not DC power packs. The PB11 can run on DCC, RC/battery and DC power packs.

Sound features can be controlled by DCC throttle function keys when operating on DCC. For additional (or non-DCC) sound feature control the BigSound P8 has 5 external inputs that can be triggered by reed switches or other remote control trigger outputs.

The BigSound P8 is 100% configurable from most Windows personal computers using the simple, graphical computer interface kit (sold separately).
