Remoted the HAM speaker to the front dash. Look ma no wires!

This is the Midland 21-406 and it fits. You will need a small rat tail file to elongate the holes a tiny bit and the wires need to be orientated up as the opening is slightly offset with a larger gap at the top.

It is made in China but I bought mine from Camelot on their last day before closing down so I guess that is a wash.

what's all that rust doing underneath the dash!? So is that speaker normally part of the stock sound system?

That is where the stock "tweeter" goes, there is another one on the passenger side. I replaced mine with aftermarket speakers
