On mine you can barely hear it on the 9 setting. I put in a different speaker but no difference. I did look up the number on the IC chip near where the speaker connects (34119) and it came back to a 500 mW audio amplifier, so you could probably replace that and fix it. I think it's what you call a flat-pack style chip. Not as bad as surface mount but will still require a tiny soldering iron. I think the actual part number ended up being MC34119D and should cost a dollar or less.

Hello there :
if you have tried to adjust the volume on the unit and still have no volume then your volume controle know b may be faulty or the speaker inside of the unit may be bad in this case you would have to remove the 4 or 6 screws that hold the 2 halves together and seperate the 2 halves nd inspect the internal wiring to see if there is a wire that has came off of the speaker if so it will need to be soldered back into pla ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Bel STi Short or Loose Connection


This most likely is due to a blown internal speaker which has shorted across its voice coil rather than becoming an open circuit. Bel/Escort now uses special "high temp" speakers which resolve any failing speaker issues due to higher temperatures. I assume that your STi is out of warranty. Yet, it will be worth it ($80) to have the speaker replaced and to have your STi flashed with the latest firmware which also gives the STi a true audio ramp-up rather than just the original slow or fast audio beeps to indicate the strength of the detected radar. The new firmware also includes slight performance enhancements, and includes better filtering for Autoscan mode. This latter enhanced Autoscan filtering makes the STi noticeably quieter while driving around town.

Hi everyone,

Bel/Escort now uses a special and proprietary "high temp" speaker which resolves issues of speakers blowing due to high ambient temperatures or heat which builds up within the speaker when it is alerting for extended periods of time. If your RX65 is in warranty and you can make a photocopy of your sales receipt, then great! All you have to pay is shipping to Bel. Bell will replace the speaker with the new version, flash your RX65 with whatever the latest firmware is, and calibrate and test your RX65 too. So, all of this is peachy if your RX65 is under warranty.

If your RX65 is out-of-warranty or if it doesn't have a serial number or was bought from a non-authorized dealer, then the service charge as I recall is $80. Thats not bad since your RD will come back working like brand new.

A note about the speakers: They are made by PUI, but the speakers are proprietary to Bel/Escort. Thus you can not buy them from any source -- not even direct from PUI.

Operating Voltage


It is 12 volt (or at least mine is). You should be able to connect directly to a fused supply, but I would advise checking output with a meter.

No sound from the bel 880 radar detector


I have the same detector and my sound just went out, I called the number on the label on the bottom. They where very friendly and told me that it was more than likely the little speaker, they sell them for $8, if you are handy with a soldering iron its a simple task.

Bel 880 sound


Call bel, the number is on the label on the bottom, I am having the same problem with mine, he was very helpful and said it was probably the speaker which they sell for $8. If your handy with a soldering iron its simple repair. Or they offer a trade up service, giving you like $80 towards a new unit.
