Honeywell Galaxy G2-12 Speaker

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I've got a galaxy g2-12 with a standard 16 ohm speaker but the volume control doesn't seem to make a  major difference to the output, even on 1/30! I need the speaker to hear the chime inside the house, but it's way too loud even on the lowest setting, but then in alarm I want the speaker to be as loud as possible. Is my panel faulty or is it a problem across the G2 series? The tones are really high pitched compared to any other galaxy I've heard.

 

 

Has anyone else found this problem and got any way of sorting it, like if the firmware can be upgraded etc? 

 

Thanks

I seem to recall it being a firmware issue.

 

Is it easy to update the firmware if you have a lead?

Looks like it might be easier to upgrade to a dimension, plus I can then add wireless devices

Try an Elemedene Inter internal sounder.

IIRC that will give you more control of the tones if you cannot flash the panel.

I found that the volume only really worked well if you put one wire through a 1 k resistor (which'll reduce the sound too) then the volume control works better

500 Ohm is the better size to use.

A simple way to lose the "noise" on an intercom system too.

Thanks, I'm flashing the panel so hopefully that will sort it out, but if not I'll try a 500 ohm resistor.
