Pryme Radio has introduced its Turbo-Boost, a new speaker transducer that delivers clear audio in an environment of narrow-banded analog or digital modulated radios, according to the company.

The Turbo-Boost uses a built-in frequency response curve optimized to the characteristics the radio.

An impending FCC mandate is requiring agencies to transition from analog portable two-way radios to a narrow-band operation, which usually reduces the audio signal quality. The audio output of many of the new models of digital radios is not as strong as in previous models, partially due to the complexity of how they process audio signals (gain control).

"Our customers come from a wide range of fields such as public safety, security, health-care, and facilities management," said Dave George, president of Pryme, in a statement. "They have all been asking for louder, clearer audio that they can hear even in very noisy areas, and typical earphones do not have any amplifier to boost the signal. We shopped the markets and we found plenty of speaker transducers, but none met our stringent requirements, so we finally found the right manufacturer who could make the Turbo-Boost to our specifications."
