Cb with Expo full console

So I got a full console today and need to move my CB. I currently have it here:



I thought about putting it inside, but I won't be able to hear it that good and it will be kinda a pain to use it. Any one have any ideas?

do you have a pic of the expy console? i have seen some with a tissue dispenser, maybe you could route the speaker up in there...

or put the speaker up under the dash aimed toward your feet...

See mines bigger than yours so I doubt it will fit there. I would want it flush mounted even if it could. I think I'm gonna mount it on the back of the console, where the radio controls are but I'll see once I actually get the console.

haha he said his was bigger. lol

but anyways mount it in the console some how and then put the external wherever you want because if you get one like mine its got a 6 foot lead on it so technically you can put it where ever, put it under the dash below the steering wheel.
thats my 2cents

If thats what I think it is then theres no way my CB will fit there, I was looking at it tonight. Mounting it on the side is becoming a strong possibility.

Mike that place where you mounted the speaker is where the tissues comes out. there is supposed to be a holder for the box in the console inside
