Groundbreaking DopplerFX Technology

Our ShockWave 3 sound module employs Model Sounds Inc. exclusive new technology in our revolutionary DopplerFX® feature providing enhanced Doppler shift effect. It uses a small GNSS receiver accessory board that provides position and speed information to the ShockWave 3 sound module. USA GPS, Russian GLONASS, European GALILEO, Chinese BEIDOU and Japanese QZSS satellite constellations are all supported.

The DopplerFX feature enables the model to sound much faster than it is really travelling as it approaches towards and recedes from the operator. Simulated speeds up to Mach 0.5 (617 km/hr or 384mph) are supported.

ShockWave 3 Sound System Exclusive Features

Revolutionary DopplerFX feature, as above.

Unique "Remote Scroll Through Mode" allowing scrolling up and down available sound sets remotely from your radio to select the sound set you want for your model.

E-Z-SyncTM method of achieving easy push-button synchronization between propeller rotation start/stop and the engine sound startup/shutdown.

The ShockWave 3 sound module also supports 3-position transmitter switches on one radio channel. This is ideal for weapons fire control, e.g. switch up for Machine Gun, switch down for Cannon fire, switch centre is off.

And since 2010, we remain the ONLY RC Sound System Manufacturer to provide two completely independent throttle controlled engine sounds on one sound module! Great for twin engine model airplanes or boats.

The ShockWave 3 sound module is fully programmable and configurable using our own ShockWave 3 PC Windows Software.
