I currently have a trixbox CE and would like to add an overhead paging system,
I have been looking and found different module that might do the work but before I order the wrong system , I need your help to educate me and give me the brand and model number that would work.

The surface that needs to be covered is a hair salon with about 2800 Sq/ft, I would like to play music from a satellite dish network and be able to page on the same speaker.
Bogen seems to have what I have but which one should I get , also how do I choose the speakers, I would like about 10-12 speakers that I will hang in the corner of the walls but I am afraid about the wattages be too much or too little.
my other question is how do I hook this paging system to my trixbox? as a SIP port or as a regular phone output?
Thanks
David

Generally with the Bogen systems you use something like a Linksys PAP2 to do the paging, when someone wants to page they dial the extension of the ATA, the Bogen system picks that up and plays it over heard.  However you need not only the paging module you need a amp as well and that is where you hook up your music source and speakers, they have very clear specifications on what it can power etc.

Hope that helps!
