  • Loud Ringer installation on IP110 phone

    We had loud ringers installed on a few of our Comdial phones. We've since installed 339 Shoretel IP phones and tossed our Comdials in the garbage (HOORAY!!!11111). Has anyone broken open an IP110 phone to install a loud ringer, and if so, what amplifier/horn/speaker combo did you use? Thanks in advance--GD

    Loud ringer?

    What is the desired result? Is it to ring a line, group of lines or just that station?

    Is there overhead paging?

      Loud Ringer

      We are a big wood products manufacturing corporation, and the plant floor is very noisy. We already have overhead paging, we're just looking to amplify the ringer on individual extensions. I know I could put in an in-line analog ringer, but then I have to come up with an analog line and replace the IP110 with an analog phone. And then I lose a lot of the flexibility that made the IP system so tantalizing in the first place (I love my Shoretel so far). So I'm all for cracking open a 110 (actually, we already opened one up with the help of an errant forklift and the speaker connection was very straightforward). So I'm just wondering if anyone else has done this and what hardware they used for the amp/horn.

      Since you like fishing, I took my kids fishing at my Uncle's farm pond. The fish are trained to come to the surface for the emptying of the bug zappers after morning and evening milking. My kids were catching largemouth bass without bait! It takes some of the sport out of it though...

        Valcom units

        We did this and used the Valcom horn V-1030C along with the power supply VP-324. Works fine in a body shop and in a machine shop. The speaker is no different.

        Opened up one and used the speaker from a lawyers set to broadcast the conversation to the overhead speakers in his office. Made a good conference setup!
