The BigSoundTMPB17...

We've always believed in being responsive to our customers wishes while keeping abreast of changing technology. Balancing customer requests, production costs and the ever changing tech landscape has led us to revise the PB11 design to create the BigSoundTM PB17.

BigSound PB17 board

BigSoundTM PB17 Features:
Easy Connection
By popular demand Screw Terminals have returned to the PB17. A more competitive manufacturing environment has allowed the PB17 to return to the often requested screw terminals without an increase in price.
16-bit Sound Reproduction
A 16-bit combintation microprocesssor and digital signal processor is used to produce museum-quality sound that cannot be matched by an 8-bit solution
3 Watts Power
Strong 3 Watt amplifier produces more than sufficient volume for out-of-doors use, capable of handling loads down to 4 ohms.
3-Volt Low-speed Operation
Most sound units do a poor job at low power settings - meaning at low run speeds. Not so with the PB11, it is fully operational at power settings as low as 3 Volts. There is usually some voltage loss from the track through the wheels and contacts to the board, so the track voltage may have to be 5 or 6 volts for continuous operation in order to keep the battery fully charged.
5 triggers for external control
5 different inputs provide flexibility for attaching external controls such as reed switches or remote control trigger outputs.
Twice the memory of the 2K2
The memory size of the PB11 means we have added and will be adding still more sounds, effects and features. Just as you asked for. Look for new and improved sounds as well.
Advanced Circuit Protection
Not likely that you'll blow up a board from making a minor installation error.
BigBoostTM is on the board
No need to purchase a separate, slow-speed booster, it is on the board at no extra price.
Board Size
The PB17 is the same size as the PB11v6.
NiMH Battery
The PB11 uses a 3.6V 2/3AAA NiMH battery pack - 53% the size of the 3.6V 2/3AA Ni-Cad 2K2 battery.
Built-in Battery Charger
No need to purchase an external battery charger. The 3.6V battery is charged automatically by the PB17. The PB17 can charge older Ni-Cad batteries as well.
DCC Sound Decoder Built-In
It isn't necessary to purchase a separate DCC function decoder to control sounds like the whistle and bell on a PB17 - a DCC sound decoder is built-in. NMRA Compliant.
Extensive Sound Library
Over 80 sounds and growing.
Lineout for external amplification
Real-world applications can be achieved including high-volume amplification by using the low-noise lineout capability.
Opto Isolation Not Necessary
Opto-isolation is not necessary when using the PB9 with remote control.
Polyphonic Integration
Different sound-features are generated so that one does not distort the other For example, bell stands out clearly from the chuff.
Manual and Automatic Opeation
Manual and automatic operation can be achieved from the same board.
Simple remote programming
No buttons to push or wires to configure. The PB17 is 100% configurable from any personal computer by using our simple computer interface.
Everything your used to with a Phoenix system
The BigSoundTM PB11 builds upon and includes all the features of previous Phoenix Sound SYstems.
