I would also recomend the Revolution Marine intercom. Had that setup on an open boat with little, (or no) wind protection. The throat mikes are great!

I used to open road race in a vert, full face helmet, and later instructed and I have these 2 person intercom mike set that used to work great inside helmets that I'm going to try out in the boat.
The set cost about $50 and I've used them 20 or so times in various race cars and convertibles at speed,w full face helmets and they worked great.
We also boat w helmets and goretex all winter, so we have alot of potential for use there all winter

I was using the Nady PMC 2 which I just checked, new on ebay under $60, but search for motorcycle intercoms, there are many

Im new to this, is there a system that you can listen to music and when you speak, does it shut off or quiet down or do you have to somewhat shout over the music to get your point across. I think its a great idea. Also in a 43-52' boat, can you get 6 of them and what is the approx cost. Thanks Jeff

Got them in the race boat and a (4) set in the pleasure boat. Would never have another boat without them !!! The pleasure boat has the Racing Comm. and I have the stereo pumped through them. NO wind noise and NO screaming back and forth.....or at least when my wifes not with me.....but anyhow they are GREAT !!! We have the VHF plugged into the race boat. Dave

1. Yes
2. Yes (example sigtronics Music Inputs
The ST-440 and ST-640 accept input from a CD player, cassette player, AM / FM stereo receiver or Walkman. Music is muted when the VHF / Comm is transmitting or receiving, or when speaking on the intercom. Passengers can also be put on uninterrupted music if they desire.
3. Yes
4. depends on which one you buy. Aircraft system will be cheaper probably than the mark up on a marine system.
