Summary: First off you should know that this speaker is a good size. If you are looking for a little external speaker to make it easier to hear this is not the one. I have a Jeep Wrangler that never has the top on and usually not the doors. So when driving down the highway the stock CB speaker was useless.
Summary: I blew through 2 other speakers from my local electronic/radio store before I purchased the Cobra. What a difference! Sound is much better, louder, and doesn't distort. I've had it for several months without any issues. Before, a little external speaker would only last about 30 days connected to my HAM radio.

Summary: The speaker is great, but it looks nothing like the picture included with the item description. There is really nothing about that photo that is even remotely similar. I don't know if I got an earlier version of this speaker or what. Amazon really needs to correct the photo on this item.
