Where should the speaker be installed?

Speaker should be installed:

  1. Approximately 4-ft up from ground.
  2. Within 3-ft between speaker and the driver.

Note: If your menu board is more than 3-ft from the driver, do not mount speaker to menu board. Use a speaker post.

My speaker location requires longer wires. What to do?

For Kit 1 and Kit 2: Most customers found the included 60-ft Huafone-engineered wires are adequate. However, in case you need additional 30-ft or 60-ft Huafone-engineered extension wires, please visit www.huafone.com.

In the rare case that your speaker location requires longer than 120-ft wires, please contact Huafone Tech Support for more instructions.

For Kit 3: A 10-ft of Cat 5 cable is included for pre-installation system testing. Use your own Cat 5 cable that meets your length requirements, up to 250-ft, for your site.

I am replacing an old intercom. What do you recommend?

Take advantage of your current installed wires. Our Huafone Wiring Retrofit Adaptors Kit’ can convert existing wires and will make your installation much easier at a minimum cost.

I cannot hear customers, and/or customers cannot hear me. Why?

Please check these possible installation errors, step by step:

Step 1 Error: Wrong port is used.
Solution: Ensure 3.5mm speaker wire is plugged into “OUT” port on the back of master station. (Not “MIC”, which is used for recording conversation with optional equipment.)
Step 2: Error: 3.5mm plugs are not plugged-in completely at master station and speaker.
Solution: Check all the plugs.
Step 3: Error: Extension wires are disconnected during wire installation through conduit.
Solution: Tape 3.5mm male end to female end before pulling wires through conduit. Prevent rain and excessive moisture.
Step 4: Error: Speaker is installed too far from customers, too low from ground.
Solution: Please see page 1 for proper speaker location.
Step 5: Error: Headset is not paired properly to master station.
Solution: Please refer to “Quick Start”. Pairing process is not complete until pairing confirmation announcement is heard over headset.
Step 6: Error: Volume Control on master station is turned off.
Solution: Turn the volume knob clockwise to max.
Step 7 Error: MIC1 Push Button on master station is turned off.
Solution: Ensure indicator light above MIC1 button is on.
Step 8: Error: Mute function on headset is accidentally selected.
Solution: Refer to “Quick Start”to unmute headset.
Step 9: Error: SmartSpeaker® privacy feature is activated.
Solution: SmartSpeaker® will automatically turn to mute mode 45 second after the previous customer leaves, until the built-in sensor detects the next customer. During testing, have a second person stand in front of speaker to unmute speaker.
