Does that mean you can do speakers or earbuds, Eileen. (have both?)

Yes, you can plug the speakers into the jack when you wish to use them.

I saw where you were asked about the Q2 Pro series.
Can they be done successfully?

I don't work om any Q2 units anymore. Too many different clamps. I only wotk on G4 and G9 units. Like the G9 units, there is no room in the clamp housing for a jack so it has to be an inline jack.

I'll post a picture of the next G9 I do so you guys can see it.

Scala G9 earbud mod

I have done a few mods on the G9 and it is quite different than the G4.

First here are some pics of the clamp. The first one is a picture of the open clamp, you can see there is much less room inside partly due to the smaller section along the bottom to accomodate the larger G9 unit and partly because Cardo went to a new method of mounting the microphone boom with a 3.5mm plug into the back of the unit. There are now 2 jacks inside from the factory, they are mounted on a small circuit board that stacks beneath the main board and has a very small connector between the boards.




Stacking boards




Small bottom board with connectors:


Finished unit with jack bonded to clamp bottom:



I will do the mod for the same $30 price as the G4 mod, $5 shipping, $5 plug for the speakers option. It takes a little longer to do however because of the glue.

Email me for my address and to make arrangements: eileen.kelleher at gmail.com

G9 Mod Update

I have been working with one of my customers on volume issues with the G9.

Just to be clear, the G4 mod has the problem with volume being louder when you use the earbuds. It is a matter of impedance and power required. When the earbuds are used you need to run the master comm volume at a much lower level, almost at the bottom.

This is not really a problem with the G4, it is still usable. The difference you notice is when the master volume goes up to compensate for increase in background noise it goes in steps and when you are at a low volume level the steps seem large.

While you can live with it when using a G4 it gets harder when you are using a G9. The volume output of the G9 is higher than the G4 clamp can provide so as a result, it gets harder to live with at the low volume levels of the main control. Sometimes it can get to the point that when you plug in an MP3 player it may not be able to put out enough volume to get "noticed" by the amplifier and you can't hear it.

The solution is to get some resistance in the output to the earbuds. This can be done in 3 ways, either by installing a 56 ohm resistor on the common leg inside the clamp or by installing an inline volume control. If you install a resistor inside the clamp you can no longer plug the speakers back in and use them, the volume will be cut down and you can't hear it.

A simple solution is to get an inline volume control.

I found a source for some short inline controls that seem to work well and are cheap. I picked up a few of them and will pass them along to anyone who gets an earbud mod done for an additional $8. If you have had a mod done in the past just send me an email and I'll send you one for the same price plus postage.

This is what it looks like:

g9 mods

HI. Jetgirl.
I have a g9 ordered and want to send them to you to be modified. I am using a set of good westone earbuds and like the sound and noise reduction they give me. As for the mp3 volume issue, is it still a problem when using a bluetooth mp3. I think you are saying it's an earbud issue not a source issue. Also what is your turnaround time?
Thanks

You are correct about the volume issue. The turn around is 2 workdays usually.

Shoot me an email and I will send you the particulars.
