I have 5 speakers that I currently am using. How could I connect all five of my Cobra Scanner speakers into one speaker? anyone have any ideas?

The cheap way to do it is to get a bunch of 70v hi/low audio transformers.

Take the low side of each transformer and plug that into the scanner. Take all the high ends and tie the leads in parallel, Take a additional transformer and tie low side to the speaker and the high side to your source high side. Radio shack sells the miniature xformers.

$10 and you have a multi way speaker combiner.Not as fancy as the fleet product but also cost hundreds less

Shhh, you forgot the super-secret choke coils that add the extra $900 to the price.

LOL

Yes. Works great. Make sure you get the 1/4" to 1/8" adaptors and the right cables.

What connectors would I need? I'm looking to hook it up to a cobra high gear speaker..Would the normal 1/4" to 1/8" from radio shack work?
