CB 'Speaker Out' to Radio "Aux In'

Can you plug in your 'speaker out' port on a cb (Uniden 520) to the Aux in port on the radio so the CB output is directed to the radio speakers?
I'm getting old and sometimes have trouble hearing the cb speaker. I'd prefer this option to mounting another speaker.

Thanks,

I don't see why it wouldn't work.... Not sure what results you'll get as far as feedback and whatnot goes..

Should work, no reason it wouldn't. You'll need an adapter since the aux in is 1/8in and most CB outs are 1/4in but it's the same signal so it should work fine. The adapter will cost you $0.75 at RadioShack.

The only time I use a cb is on the trails or rock climbing, so I'm usually not listening to the radio at that time anyway. I'm usually more concerned with NOT tumbling down the rocks. And if I want to listen, I just won't plug in the speaker. Win Win

I would assume, you can leave the speaker plugged in constantly and just switch the headunit over to auxiliary input or whatever? Cool idea though...never thought about doing that. I've got an external speaker, but it's kind of annoying the way it's setup

I have a Uniden pro 640e with a mono to stereo adaptor and a 1/8" to 1/8" cable from the radio to the aux input. (the adapter is so I get signal in both channels of the stereo). I just toggle to "aux" on my head unit when I want to hear the CB. It's very helpful when going down the highway with a soft top. One drawback; the radio amp is so much more sensitive than the internal audio amp in a CB that you get some "talkback" through the stereo when you transmit. It's not good talkback, but it's not bad enough to cause feedback. It's a lot worse on sideband, which is what I use most of the time. It's not as bad on straight AM.
