Radar detector and speakers

Im not sure if this has been discussed ever but is it possible to wire a radar detector so that the beep will go off through the trucks speakers or just one speaker when the radio is turned on. Most detectors are too quiet to hear with music.

Your radar detector would have to have a headphone output... and you could work something out but it would either be extremely loud or quiet.. and would need
constant volume adjustment... maybe a mini strobe light that goes off with the
beep would be better?

If your radar has an output jack on it then I would just buy an external speaker for like a cb and hook it into that....
