Submersed for 6 hours and High Temperature Tested at 520F for 5 minutes

Our Tests

Not only did we subject the the XG C-C1 to high temperature testing of 520F for over 5 minutes, but we also submersed the XG C-C1 in one foot of water for 6 hours and successfully transmitted underwater to the Delsar search and rescue probe. 

These tests show that the XG C-C1* is one of the most robust fire speaker microphones in the market AND the only dual mode RSM/PTT radio accessory tested to exceed future industry requirements.

New Hydrophobic Design - The newly redesigned microphone aperture minimizes surface tension so water is repelled from the mic aperture. 

Redesigned Headset Interface - A new high tolerance headset socket as well as high temperature silicon plugs.  The 3.5mm receive audio is also enhanced.

  • 2W speaker output
  • Upgraded circuit board
  • Improved audio output
  • New silicone plugs for higher temperatures

Rigorous testing and manufacturing processes by Savox ensure that in fire and emergency conditions you’ll still have communications with your team in the most extreme conditions.  We keep our promise to you that You’re Never Alone.
