Volume may still be low and hard to hear at highway speeds or with the windows down. There are several variants of DC powered amplified Motorola speakers that work well when reconfigured for scanner use.

Default Holy crap!

the OP asks a question about using car speakers for his scanners and he gets grilled about the choice of his car. For crying out loud frazpo, either answer the person's question or GTFO.

It's not a big deal. The things in question were clarified.

Thanks again for the suggestions on speakers. I'm looking in to a few options now.
