External Sound: It's a common question... "What can I use to get better sound out of my radio equipment?" Two-way radios and scanners have never had great audio. But with today's products being made smaller and smaller, the audio is worse than ever. If your radio will be stationary, hooking it up to external speakers is the way to go. Many people opt for a single speaker, made by the radio manufacturers themselves. For home or office use, that's not really the best option. Those speakers were primarily designed to be stuck in a vehicle. They will work, but there's something a lot better... Send your radio audio through a set of properly designed, powered speakers. Yes, the audio you're listening to is in mono... But having two speakers gives better coverage, and you can also use them with your computer as well... or even a music source. Properly designed speakers will sound a lot better than just a little plastic box with a cheap speaker shoved in it. You'll be surprised at how conversations can often be much more intelligible, through improved audio.
Design: Since the speakers are powered, you don't have to be bothered with using a separate amp. Power and the audio source goes to the left speaker, which serves as the main controller, and then a cable sends the right channel audio to the right speaker. There's three different inputs on the speakers. A single 1/8" Stereo input on the front, and a set of RCA and 1/4" individual inputs on the back. There's also an optional bass boost circuit that can be switched on and off, if you prefer having deeper bass.
Accessories Included: Everything you should need to connect one radio/scanner, or a computer.
- 1x 5' Cable to connect the two speakers together.
- 1x 2' Cable with stereo 1/8" male connectors, for connecting a device to the front 1/8" input.
- 1x 5' Cable with male RCA connectors on one end, and a single stereo 1/8" male connector at the other end. (This would be the cable to connect a radio.
It was not included by the manufacturer, but we ourselves also include a 1/8" stereo to 1/8" mono adapter, to connect your mono radio or scanner, using the 5' cable. All of this should be everything you need for connecting one radio. Alternatively, you could connect the speakers to your computer, and then connect your radio to the mic/line input on your computer. Purchasing a separate small mixer, you could send the audio from numerous devices into the speakers.
