External Speakers (for louder rings on incoming calls) for Polycolm VX410?

We need an external speaker for a Polycolm phone. The person who uses this phone needs a louder ring when there are incoming calls. 


We want to use it as a loud ringer for this phone, nothing else. 


We got an SIP Speaker, and are trying to configure it. But it's proving to be difficult.


I noticed there's an "AUX Port" on the bottom of these phones, but it's an RJ port (not your standard 3.5mm AUX port), so I'm not sure if I can just buy some speakers and a certain cable and get it to wor?


Is there an external speaker you can connect to these phones basically to act as a loud ringer for incoming calls?

Hello @cmit ,


Welcome to the Poly Community.

The AUX port is for an expansion module and not for any speaker.


Please ensure you always check the FAQ's and/or utilize the community search before posting any new topics or follow up posts.

The above describes how you can use a louder special ring tone. There is no other ability to connect an external speaker to the phone.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
