Re: Amplified Speaker


Like everyone else, I have a 436, run it through the speakers in my car with the Aux cord.  I have a Honda Accord Hybrid.

It works great.  Plus is you can turn it up or down with the volume controls on the steering column.

Yikes! I lept before looking;  seeing Joe M's response about no audio output on the 436.....Maybe a headphone jack can be added from the speaker to the case.

Hello Group,

Looking for suggestions and installation notes for an amplified external speaker to mount in my car to listen to my BCD436HP.

Seems the scanner itself does not have enough output to drive any non amplified speaker I have tried. Especially when driving...

Also, any recommendations for using a relay or external switch to turn the powered speaker on/off In order to not run down the battery when the car is off?

Thanks all for the input!
