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 8-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.

More than just a powerful speaker, 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 7" W x 13" D, has a frequency response of 250 Hz to 8 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 4 ohm, 5" horn speaker with an input capacity of 15 watts. At 2-1/4", the basic ES-2 is a 4-ohm external speaker, for input power up to 5 watts. The deluxe 4", 4-ohm external speaker model ES-4 offers 8 watts input power handling and comes with a swivel mounting bracket.

All Shakespeare accessory speaker products are color- and performance-matched to ensure good looks and simple installation. The HS-40 PA/Hailer Horn Speaker offers excellent value with a suggested retail price of $109.95.
