Loud hailer speaker - who makes one that isn't cheap plastic?
I am looking for a hailer speaker that is of higher quality than the typical cheap plastic ones. Any suggestions?
I'm talking about an external PA loudspeaker mounted on a radar arch or hardtop. Standard Horizon and Shakespeare both make affordable horn speakers that work fine, but they are made from "impact resistant plastic" with cheap-looking plastic mounts. After 1-2 seasons, the plastic turns yellow and looks crappy. I have yet to find one made from a durable material.
The products from Simrad, Mister Fish and Raymarine are slightly better, but they are all plastic.
