    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    my pa speaker is the 50 watt one from radioshack. its powered by the cb only and its loud enough for my liking. I don't need people on the other side of the neighborhood to hear me.

    wat?
    most PA's just use a normal headphone jack and plug straight into the back of the cb. just mount it somewhere under the hood and forward facing to get good travel out of it

    that depends on how you use it i guess. I have mine down firing so you can hear it behind the truck too.
