[CA11] Communications
I have purchased a 2006 vintage boat that was equipped with a Raymarine Ray215 VHF on the helm and a Rayvhf remote station in the salon with a Raymarine speaker with volume control. The previous owner replaced the Ray215 with a Ray55 VHF radio prior to me purchasing the boat and the older Rayvhf is not compatible. I have since purchased a Raymic A46051 with cable to install in the salon to replace the older unit.

1) Does this Raymic Remote station, A46051 hand set, require an external speaker.
2) Will the existing speaker work with the A46051 or do I need to exchange it with a passive speaker.
3) if the older speaker and the A46051 will not work, could you recommend a newer Raymarine speaker that will connect to the handset, with the two wires on the extension cable that came with the kit.

Thank you in advance.

Greg

Welcome to the Raymarine Forum Greg,

Q1) Does this Raymic Remote station, A46051 hand set, require an external speaker.
A1) Negative. A speaker is located within the housing of the Raymic itself. You can also install an optional E46006 external speaker to the Raymic.

Q2) Will the existing speaker work with the A46051 or do I need to exchange it with a passive speaker.
A2) Unlike a situation involving a passive speaker, the currently installed active speaker may not be retained for use with the Raymic.

Q3) if the older speaker and the A46051 will not work, could you recommend a newer Raymarine speaker that will connect to the handset, with the two wires on the extension cable that came with the kit.
A3) See response to Q1.

Thank you very much. I have sent a second request for information as I wasn't sure this one went through. Please disregard the second request.

Can I assume that the currently installed speaker connected to the older equipment is a passive speaker?

Greg,

Q. Can I assume that the currently installed speaker connected to the older equipment is a passive speaker?
A. If it doesn't have a volume knob, then its a passive speaker. If it has a volume knob, then it is an active speaker.

The current speaker has a volume knob. I assume it is an active speaker then. Is it compatible with the A46051. If not, is the E46006 still available. I would like to hook an external speaker to the A46051. I am a bit confused because of your response to Q2.

RE: [CA11] Communications
Chuck, Thank you so much. I just wanted to be clear and was a bit confused, doesn't take much sometimes.

I will check the Raymarine site for a passive speaker. I will remove the old Raymarine speaker and sell it with the old unit and cables. Would like to get a compatible speaker to cover the [censored] at minimum.

You have been more than helpful and patient.

Thank again.

Greg

You're welcome. Raymarine Order Services should indeed be able to provide you with the availability information requested.
