Q: I know there have been a lot of questions about this adapter working with the Bose X, and I understand that it will not power the ANR because it does not have an inline battery pack. However, will the headset still work passively, without the ANR function?
A: No, this is not compatible with the Bose X. You would need the Panel Powered Headset to Portable Fixed Wing Adapter for the Bose X.
Q: Will this adapter work with Bose Proflight 2's Lemo 6 pin adapter, or just with the A20?
A: Yes, this is also compatible with the Bose Proflight Headset.
Q: Will this adapter work with the David Clark pro xp headset?
A: No. For the David Clark Pro-XP you will need a way to power the headset once converted so you'll need this panel power to fixed wing adapter that adds a back the batteries (power source).
Q: I have the BOSE A20 with XLR 5 conector. Can I use de XLR 6 with dual plug adapter for my headset?
A: No, if you have the XLR5 plug (Airbus) then you would want to get the Airbus XLR5 to Fixed Wing Adapter instead.
Q: Would the Fixed wing adapter PA-89/A20 work with a Bose A 10 6 pinRedel?
A: No, for the Bose X (Bose 10) you would need to add back in the batteries to power the ANR system. You will need the Bose X Panel Powered Adapter to Portable Fixed Wing Adapter,
Q: I have a Bose X with a Redel six pin and the inline battery and on off unit.Which adapter system do I need for GA dual plugs. I want to keep it battery powered.
A: For Bose X you would need the Bose X Panel Powered Adapter to Portable Fixed Wing Adapter which adds a battery box.
Q: Will it work with hthe Zulu.2 headset?
A: No, this will not work with the Lightspeed Zulu.2. For the Lightspeed Zulu.2 you will need to supply power to the headset when converting from a Redel connector to a portable model. And, therefore you would need to get this adapter: Bose X Panel Powered Adapter to Portable Fixed Wing Adapter which has a battery box to supply power to the headset and will work with the Zulu.2.
Q: I notice that the PA-89/A20 adapter does NOT have a battery pack in-line... like the other BOSE model X (Bose X Panel Powered Adapter to Portable Fixed Wing Adapter..which has a 9V battery box built in-line with the adapter). So my question is: How does the new A20 headset get its "power" without batteries if it is using the PA-89/A20 adapter for a "hard wired" A20 headset with a Bose A20 6-pin headset PN# 324843-1040 ?
A: Bose changed the design of the A20 and the battery pack is now part of all cable assemblies - portable or panel powered. If you have a panel powered Bose A20 (324843-1040), the ANR is powered by the aircraft electrical system and the music / cell phone interface is powered by the batteries. However, the batteries will also power the ANR system if the headset is not getting power from the Redel connector. Because of the new design - and the fact that all Bose A20 headsets already have a battery box - you do not need to add a power source on the adapter like you did with the Bose X adapter.
Q: Will this adapter work with a Lightspeed Zulu bluetooth that has the powered connector but does not have the standard GA mic and phone jacks (which I have in my aircraft)?
A: This one will not work for the Lightspeed Zulu because it will not provide any power to the Zulu. However, you can do it with the Bose X Panel Powered Adapter to Portable Fixed Wing Adapter which will allow you to change from the Redel connector to the standard two male plugs (PJ-055 and PJ-068) and it will provide power to the Zulu through the included battery box.
Q: Will this adapter also work on the Bose aviation headset X?
A: No, it will not work for the Bose X headset. For the Bose X you would need the Bose X Panel Powered Adapter to Portable Fixed Wing Adapter instead.
