I fitted one to mine. I had a bit if trouble finding one with the right 4ohm impedance and also capable of the max power. I'll have a look for a photo and link to what I did.

The installation of the hailer speaker/mic on my boat has been delayed, pending finding a location that doesn't feed back when using the thing. Not a real high priority, but something I would like to get set up, as it would double as a fog horn.

What location did you guys find where the speaker worked without feedback through the mic?

I cut a circular hole in the front of my console and fitted the hailer there. I specifically chose the SH hailer as it has a lip/flange at the edge which meant I had an edge to work to and glue it in place. Mine is primarily for foghorn use.

I have fitted one of these on my RIB on the Icom M505. I use it as a loudspeaker for the radio, a loud hailer and it can be a foghorn as well. It is quite big, but works well. I have it mounted on my mast. I don't generally have any feedback issues unless there is another radio on in front of it. I have used it as a hailer without any problems, as long as you don't hold the mic in front of it and talk.
