This system consists of two major components: Controller (A790 Technisonic) and Amplified Speaker System (PSAIR22+ Powersonix). The controller is installed in the cockpits’ center console and interfaced with the existing intercom system. The speaker assembly is installed in the left wheel well, forward fairing area with a 50 degree downward angle.
