i have a cobra ultra 19. its small and has a pa but you will need a small amp between the head and the horn for best sound and you will want to wire it right to the battery

@abadfart -
about wiring it straight to the battery... why not run it through the fuse box?

You should be looking for a radio with a "PA function".

It's just a function that allows you to use the internal amp. with an outside speaker that you have installed.

If you google " cb radio pa"  you get this.

P.s. Check your manual. Lots of cars that have computers limit the amount of power you can use as a transmitter without wrecking the computer.
