Much better than original speaker, a bit tricky to fit in conjunction with Sotabeams filter mod. But with a bit of care and measuring and hot melt glue it fits just fine. Great mod.
easy to fit and makes a huge difference for the price. Impressed with audio quality, makes the ssb filtering easier to listen to. Highly recommended.
A well made speaker that was very easy to fit into my Yaesu FT818nd. Sounds from it are great !
Received the speaker well packed. Replaced it in about 10 minutes. It was the most easy mod for my FT-817. Speaker sounds good. Quality is better as the original one and it is humidity resistant which is important when using the radio in the field.
Don't pass this up; will make a huge difference in your radio
After the original speaker in my FT817nd recently failed I was very pleased to see that Sotabeams had released a Mylar cone speaker to suit the'817. I have had previous experience with Mylar cone speakers in my working life. I ordered 1 & received it quite quickly. The replacement process was quick & painless as the speaker was a perfect fit. When I switched the radio on I was rewarded with much better audio & again I am satisfied with my Sotabeams deal. Les, VK5KLV.
Good speaker, easily fitted and does the job well.
Easy to fit and improves the sound quality.
But very expensive....
This new speaker was easy to fit, and gives improved output over the original paper cone type.
