Looks like just what we need for the GL1800. Well done.

Hmmm. microprocessor controller instead of a $ 0.15 potentiometer? Seems a bit much for < $5.00 in parts needed to design it.

Doesn't matter how much or little the parts cost. There's time taken to make the thing as well as the time they guy spent scratching his head designing it. I think the $80 is well worth it if it works. Think of the hundreds of $'s we spend on chrome bits that must cost very little to make and quite often the quality of the chrome is terrible.

Hey Jon, do you ship to Ireland? Also, how does the voxset2 differ from the older one? Thanks. :)

The Kennedy stuff always works. In my opinion it's always well tested before we get it. Jon takes pride in his work, other manufacturers should sit up and take note (I've just binned another piece of Kuryakyn chrome that is just chromed right over steel with no copper coat). Electrical Connection are one of the few other companies that share the Kennedy method of going to the bother of getting our opinions when making new stuff.
I've had a Kennedy Cellset for years and it always works without any problems.

yes, we ship to ireland, although I would prefer to hand carry it!
we've replaced the external adjuster pot with an adjustment via PTT toggles. it now also has a toggletalk function.

Jon, am I right in saying that the Voxset2 is on all the time and you don't have to push a button to talk? Only I had another setup on my 1800 (previous owner fitted it) and you had to press a button to talk. Very awkward, I had to literally instruct any pillion people before they got on the bike, so I had the thing removed.

Also, does the Voxset2 work if you have no CB radio fitted to your gl1800? Thanks in advance. :)

You do not have to hit the PTT to talk.
The unit it is active all the time. When you speak, your voice breaks the squelch and the mics turn on.

It does have a mode that enables you to toggle the mics on and off, if you want.

It will work on bikes without a radio, however you will need to install a PTT button of some sort (ours for example) to control the squelch level.

DAVE ,If "kennedy" thought a .15 cent potentiometer would do the job ,I am sure thats what they would have used ,,They have always had excellent quality products and quality does not come cheap ....These people have been around a long time and know what they are doing and they have a very successful business going ,I dont think they would be doing so well if they were fitting cheap componets in their products ,,,

cheers Ciaran

I love the Kennedy stuff as well. Value for money and great backup. The Cellset is an all-time favourite and has seen service on my last two Wings.
