Intercoms...what I've learned
Hi guys...ok, last thread of the morning...I have to get my butt to work or I'm going to get buried!
Since most of my riding is 2-up, I've wanted to find an intercom system that worked well enough to actually use between my passenger and myself. I looked at Tork, Chatterbox and even one that was a series or tubes that you spoke and heard through.
Anyway, I ended up buying one off of Ebay for $17 + shipping...$23 and change delivered...........BRAND NEW, in the BOX!
Initially, it worked well with the volumes turned up all the way up to 45mph or so and at that point, you no longer could make out what the other person was saying.
The ear peices stay in place no matter if my 9 year old daughter or my 37 y/o gf is wearing it and once you figure out where to place the inline mic....all is well!!
My GF and I played around with them yesterday and found that by turning the volume (each person has an individual volume control on the base black box) down to around 40%, we could CLEARLY hear the other up to speeds of 80mph!! Folks, we have a winner here!! I still would have rather have had a wireless but they are nearly 300 bucks and more then I'm willing to pay for an intercom. For 23 bucks, I couldn't have asked for more.
If you want one and can't find them on Ebay, let me know and I'll hook you up. If there is enough interest, we could probably setup a group buy and get them even cheaper........
