PA system Speaker

I was wondering what is a good brand of a PA System/LoudSpeaker (I really just want the megaphone to have some fun with) to get, one that's not gonna burn out 2 weeks from now and does good in the weather.

I can't recommend a particular PA speaker but in general, the wattage rating of the speaker has to match the power rating of what it's connected to. Your CB PA speaker jack doesn't put out much power so you need to also pick a speaker that doesn't need a lot of power to drive it. So that means to avoid speakers with high power ratings like 25 or 50 watts. You'd barely hear anything you'd say through your CB's PA with that kind of speaker when hooked up to a CB.
Instead, go for a speaker designed for a low power source, maybe 5-10 watts at the most.

In other words, when connected to a small CB's PA, a small 10 watt PA speaker would be louder than a big PA speaker with a 100 watt rating.

Check your local laws on that too. Got yelled at by a cop once for this years back. No ticket, but apparently not lawful to use these.
