    Not having a JL yet, I just got around to checking this out. That is a really clean design! I like JeepFan’s external speaker idea, too.

    That external speaker came out great! I've got one, and didn't think I needed it, but now I'm going to see if it fits.

    Thanks! It's works but, I'm not totally happy with it. I may make a bracket to move the speaker back just a bit. My main goal was to not drill any holes in your awesome CB BAR. I'll post pics of my setup when it's done.

    Thanks! Agreed! Eddies design is awesome! It not only provides a great mount for a radio but, you have the option of mounting other devices to it as well. The speaker is important to me because the Cobra 75 mic speaker sucks so bad.

    I'm sure you will be able to make it work. You may need to improvise a bracket of your own but, try not to drill any extra holes in the cb bar itself.

    Is this pretty hidden from outside view? Thanks

    The CB BAR itself sits just in front of the sun visors and at the same level and is hardly noticeable inside or out. Whatever radio you use is pretty much the only thing you see.

    Just ordered one. After using my handheld cb this weekend I want a mounted one. Handheld didn't have the range I needed.

    Honest question... will moving up from a handheld to a standard size unit increase range? I thought only antenna position and length would effectively do that. I thought that people moved from handhelds to standard size for improved audio output.

    My handheld works fine but I have an external antenna. Without the external antenna, it blows. But I don't know if its range is better than a non-handheld.

    My issue is that I dont have an external antennae. I figured if I'm ordering it might as well get it all.
