King Air C90
Why would an ALTO DECU headphone panel be installed in a cockpit? The owner of this King Air C90 installed a four channel XM Receiver. An ALTO HA-006 was also installed to distribute headphone audio to the four seats in the aircraft cabin. When the pilots dropped the plane off at the dealer for the installation they learned the headphone amplifier being installed was a six channel amplifier and as a result, two of the output channels would not be used. At that point, the Chief pilot asked if two additional headphone panels could be installed in the cockpit so they could listen to XM radio too. The picture tells the rest of the story.
A very famous rock and roll artist decided it was time to upgrade the cabin audio system in his GIV. In order to ensure he would be able to listen to the clearest sounding digital audio possible, the ALTO dealer replaced the existing obsolete speaker switch panel with two ALTO DECU fit compatible switch panels that interfaced to two new ALTO DX series switching amplifiers. This allowed the audio sources to interface direct to the speaker amplifiers without the possibility of noise being introduced to the audio system from and obsolete A/V switching unit. The owner of the aircraft was very pleased with the sound of his new audio system and so were the dealers knowing they installed the system for someone that certainly knows how a quality audio system should sound.
Embraer Phenom 100
The owner operator of this Phenom 100 wanted to share his personal music playlist with his passengers. To do this he ordered an ALTO cabin audio system that included four ALTO fit compatible speakers that mount into the Embraer factory provision speaker locations in his P-100. An ALTO DECU keypad with an aux input was also installed at the pilot’s seat location to provide him the ability to interface the audio in his phone with a 3.5MM phone jack. I sure hope the passengers like the owners play list as he has full control of the cabin volume from the cockpit too!
