    To many to list here, see my build info on my website.
    I have in my truck a Cobra 19 DX IV CB radio, on it I have the PA speaker connection wired to a 250watt Kenwood amp and attached to the amp are two Pyle 25watt speakers. The system is setup at this point that the CB output will not be driven hard enough by the amp to blow the speakers, and everything is all well and good.

    Here is what I want to do. I want to have a switch to control it so that i can either have the amp get a signal from the PA function on the CB radio or get a feed from the aux jack in my Tacoma. This would then let me play music or other audio from my iPhone or other audio device though the "PA" amp and speakers.

    How would I go about wiring this up so that it will work with out blowing speakers, I cant see an iPhone headphone jack being more powerfull than the output on the CB radio.

    Thanks for the help.

    I'd watch having it feed from your cb, with the volume up enough, if you key the mic, the feedback could blow your speakers!
