CB is a tinny sounding method of communications, that speaker should sound as good as any of them. Don't pay any attention to that "6 watts of power" BS though, speakers can only put out as much power as what they're plugged into gives them. Your CB's speaker jack only puts out several watts, it doesn't put out 6 watts.

I run this one in my Jeep, works VERY well. Excellent sound even with doors and top off at hey speeds. Where I would have to have my CB turned all the way up to hear, this speaker only needs a line or two on dial. Your CB needs an external speaker jack.

What Jerry said is pretty much spot on: your CB doesn't exactly put out Dolby Digital 7.1 surround sound. Indeed, it is basically just a low-quality AM radio signal. As such, you don't need any sort of high-end audiophile speaker system to connect to it.

This is the one I use:

I actually have two of them--one in the Jeep, one in the Suburban. Both are connected to each vehicle's ham radio, and both work well. At a whopping $12, I would recommend it to anyone.

^^ I personally have never used this speaker, but two local ham radio friends have it and both have recommended it to me. Based on that alone, I'd say it is also worthy of consideration. Pick the shape/size you like and order away.

I bought a male/male 1/8 jack cable and have a splitter on the Cobra 75's EXT jack. One of the splits goes to a RoadPro speaker and the other I take to the aux of the Radio. If you do this, make sure that the volume is turned wayyyyyy down before plugging it into the radio. Turn the squelch down so that you get the static and then slowly bring the CB volume up. This way you wont overdrive the aux input.

When on trails I don't listen to the radio because I am paranoid listening to the Jeep. When on the highway, I unplug it from the radio and use the ext speaker
