RECESSED OR EXTERNAL
Recessed installations are possible with our "A" Series models. These system kits come without an enclosure for the drivers (as they are recessed into the fuselage) and the amplifier is housed in a separate enclosure.
For example, the sleek 2-horn system shown above on the AS350B3 is a STC'd installation by American Eurocopter. Power Sonix PSAIR22A consists of two PS-SPK-300 speaker assemblies, a PS-AMP600 and cables.
The installation is completed with a bracket to hold the speaker assemblies and a flange to seal the opening in the fuselage. As you can see in the photos above, the ways to integrate the installation of our speakers varies from aircraft to aircraft due to space requirements and other tactical equipment installed.
HELICOPTER PA SYSTEMS
"I may sound like I'm a rep for Power Sonix when you read this, but I'm not. We had some old (NAT) PAs in our old aircraft that sounded like Charlie Brown's mother talking ("Wah wah wah"). And that was at 300 feet AGL and 20 knots. We fgured that making PA announcements were some of (the) riskiest missions we performed because we had to fly so low and slow for people to understand what we were saying. When we replaced the aircraft we also replaced the (NAT) PAs with Power Sonix.
I cannot begin to tell you how much better they work when we use them. We now make PA announcements at 800 feet AGL at 50 knots and people hear us clearly and at signifcant distances. Very impressive systems and well worth the money. Kev"
