Question External Speaker Question???

I am getting ready to install both a HAM and CB radio into my 100 Series LC. Can I use a single external speaker for both radios or do I need to install two seprate speakers, one for each radio?

Use two separate speakers. I wouldn't tie the outputs of two radios together.

And you'd be surprised how often there is chatter on both. Especially if you get some trucker bleed over onto the cb (very likely)

There are times when you'll want to have both on and it will ruin trying to listen to both. 2 speakers is the only way to go, IMO.

It can be done if you need or want one speaker. There are a few ways to approach it. A speaker for reach radio is pretty typical, though.
