FAQs

+What is the function of SQ?

To reduce noise of the systems, Listen offers a noise reduction technology called ListenSQ™. Both the transmitter and receiver must have SQ on to achieve the desired results. If you are planning to use this product with older Listen systems or equipment not manufactured by Listen, you should disable SQ.

The LR-500 gives the user an opportunity to lockout unused channels and has the controls on the outside of the front door.

+How many receivers can I have in a system?

As many as you need, the number is endless.

+How many channels can I program into the LR-500?

One to 57. The receiver has 57 channels and you can program it to have just the channels you want to access. It can be a two channel receiver, a 12 channel receiver, or keep all channels.
