Are there any newer audio panels that are slide-in compatible with the older KMA24 unit?
Yes - PS Engineering's PMA7000 series.
PS Engineering makes fantastic audio panels. Highly recommend them.
As @flyingcheesehead said, the PMA7000 does. I replaced my KMA24 a few years ago with a PMA7000B. It is awesome.
What if I have a couple KMA24H audio panels instead of just one? Any ideas there?
Our PAC24 is a direct slide in replacement for the KMA24H series 71 and you can install two of our PAC24 and eliminate strange states of operation of dual KMA24H because the PAC24 talk with each other over a digital bus.
How many places do you need on the intercom?
For my KMA 24Hs I just have 4 places. It’s an odd FBI surveillance setup where the right seater has his own panel. The back seater can also plug into the panel via a cannon plug in his arm rest and pipe things through COM4/COM5 and also record everything through the recorder jack. Interesting setup that allowed them to take other govt agencies up and plug in their own com and surveillance systems. Not terribly useful for me though.
I’m starting to think tearing it all out and starting over with one panel may be the cheaper/smarter option.
I replaced my KMA24 with a Garmin and regretted it. Garmin's service attitude is reprehensible towards such things. I wish I'd gone with the PS engineering, but they were having problems right at the time I was installing.
