PMA6000B Audio Panel w/4-place mono intercom available with or without marker beacon receiver.
The PMA6000B holds both FAA TSO as well as EASA ETSO and was designed to be made easier to install because of a single 44-pin Sub-d connector.
PS Engineering has revolutionized audio control in general aviation airplanes. At that time, the original PMA6000 took the audio panel from a collection of switches added as an afterthought, to a multi-talented inter-system focal point for cockpit audio.
Radio selection, cockpit communications and even music were seamlessly combined in the modern audio control panel. The PMA6000-series set a benchmark for all GA audio panels that followed.
The next generation PMA6000B has been given the benefit of PS Engineering's 15 years of audio panel control design and manufacturing experiences. It offers a low cost alternative to the more capable audio panel product line that the industry has become to expect from such a focused driven company.
The PMA6000B combines an audio selector panel with a top-quality manually adjusted VOX intercom and a slew of features to enhance versatility and utility.

PS Engineering requires all units to be sold with custom harness in order to maintain factory warranty. Units sold without harness will receive no factory warranty. All PS Engineering orders with custom wire harness are build to order and require all questions to be filled out to process correctly. Any custom order not complete will cause delays. All custom harnesses are built to IPC-WHMA-A-620 standards via the manufacturer’s installation manual. Any additional comments or special requests may be noted in the Special Instructions field at checkout for review by the avionics team. For questions regarding custom harnesses for PS Engineering please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 800-826-3160.
I had a new 6000B w/marker beacon receiver installed in my P172D last May--couldn't justify the additional features of the more sophisticated PSE models. What a superb upgrade (previous was a used KA24 King)!
The intercom function is much better than my old separate intercom--breaks the squelch easier, without the squelch breaking because of engine noise, making communication with passengers much easier. Being able to shut off the passengers is great, while they can still talk to one another.
I had a pair of music jacks installed, one for the front seat and one for the back seat--this allows the back seaters to have their own music, if they wish. I plug in a portable XM radio, so that makes long solo cross countries much more pleasant, and with the automatic mute function, the music instantly shuts off so as not to block ATC calls.

Q: Does the PMA 6000B audio panel 11-08074 include the marker beacon receiver?
No antenna is included with any PS Eng audio panel as different aircraft will need different types of antennas. You can look at the marker beacon antennas we sell under our antenna section.
Q: Can the PS Engineering PMA6000B Audio Panel be used in Certified Aircraft?
The PS Engineering PMA6000B Audio Panel is FAA TSO'D and can be used in Certified Aircraft.
Q: Does the PMA6000B include the connector kit and tray?
Yes, this comes with everything included for a new install.
Q: Is the PS Engineering PMA6000B Bluetooth enabled?
No, the PMA6000B is not Bluetooth enabled.
Q: Is the wiring harness included with this unit?
No, the wiring harness is separate from the cost of the unit.
Q: Can this tray be upgraded to a PAR200B at a later time or would it require a complete reinstall?
Per the manufacturer, you will not be able to slide in a PAR 200 as it is only a slide in for the 8000 series. It would be a new install.
