    Interesting concept! Obviously there is probably better ways to produce a better sounding ecaller, this should be a good discussion. With power horns I don't think your going to get the clearest sound possible, but for snow goose hunting obviously their the best choice.

    Pictures as requested.

    This is the inside, however there should be alligator clips on the end of the wires coming off the amp that go to the battery. Had this amp give out due to some unforeseen conditions and haven't replaced it yet. My 6 working units are located across the state.

    Great thread!!!!
    New to this Snow Goose thing, and technology apparently.

    So, only thing not pictured/listed would be the actual MP3 player, correct????

    Correct. The AUX cable that is listed will go from your MP3/CD/Phone directly into the amp.

    Thank you!

    Ordering parts.

    Also, I've read that calling is overrated for large flocks, however is effective with smaller groups? We currently have zero calling, or motion, just 200 Texas Rags and a mix of shells which total around 300-350 total decoys. So we're adding to our spread as cost effectively as possible, so this thread is extremely helpful. Next a DIY rotary machine.

    We mostly run traffic between three refuges, tough...but challenging!

    I wouldn't say it is over rated.

    Do not even hunt without an ecaller. You will be much happier. Add a rotary (or 2) if you can.

    I am a firm believer in the more sound you have the better, uniform, quality sound throughout the spread with it relatively quite, somewhat turned up around the shooters. Some people love to turn their ecallers wayy up because snows are pretty loud birds but go turn them up and stand directly over a powerhorn and youll find why birds hate them super loud.
