May 22, 2013

Shakespeare HS-40 PA Hailer Horn Speaker

Shakespeare HS-40 PA Hailer Horn Speaker

Safety demands that boaters be able to hear VHF transmissions, onboard communications and vessel-to-vessel messages clearly, especially during weather threats or emergencies. The eight-ohm Shakespeare HS-40 PA/Hailer Horn Speaker rises to the challenge. This multifunction device amplifies sound with up to 40 watts of power handling capacity.

The HS-40 also fully supports a true loudhailer's hail, fog horn or listen-back functions. For marine VHF radios, it provides extra volume for noisy environments, or can pull double-duty for VHF units that have a built-in PA or loudhailer function.

The HS-40 is constructed of high-impact white plastic and comes with a tilt mount bracket to accommodate deck or bulkhead mounting. It can also be flush mounted. Compact for its capacity, the speaker measures seven inches wide and 13 inches deep, has a frequency response of 250 Hz to eight KHz, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -40º to 176º F.

Shakespeare offers an array of external speakers to suit various applications. The HS-5 is a four-ohm, five-inch horn speaker with an input capacity of 15 watts. At 2.25 inches, the basic ES-2 is a four-ohm external speaker, for input power up to five watts. The deluxe four-inch, four-ohm external speaker model ES-4 offers eight watts input power handling and comes with a swivel mounting bracket.

Suggested retail price is $109.95.
