Pressing both TALK and LISTEN buttons communicate with the door speaker.

The volume of the master unit’s built-in AM/FM radio receiver, CD and auxiliary audio input can be controlled with the MUSIC VOLUME buttons. The master unit’s radio can also be turned on or off using these buttons. Pressing both the MUSIC VOLUME buttons will cause the master unit’s radio to scan the preset stations and music sources.
