Loud audio

Air band radios are usually operated in high noise environments, so it is essential for the pilot’s radio to provide loud audio. The A14 uses a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier that doubles the audio output. Its internal speaker delivers a loud 700mW audio output with clear sound to cut through cabin or tarmac noise.
