Single DIN CB radio
« on: August 29, 2017, 05:56:24 PM »
Is the Cobra 18 WX STii really the only one in single din? According to Google it is.

I don't understand, why aren't CBs a standard size?

I bought a Cobra, installed it, fits great, but I took a chance on a Refurb and it appears to be junk out of the box.

Does that one have a front-firing speaker? Does it also have a speaker output of some type, so you can use another set of Mitsubishi's ill-placed dash speakers for that purpose instead of misdirecting music sounds at your ankles?

83 "Dodge" Power Ram 50, a bit lifted, way slow and gets more comments from random people than the other two put together

JBFP, this has the front speaker and a jack for an external speaker. I wired the B-pillar speakers in the Raider as the external, rather than the dash.

The seller is replacing it for me. It's odd that this is the only single DIN one.

It does look good installed.

Isn't there a few manufacturers out there that make "tabs" to adapt smaller ones to a DIN opening?

Here's my Cobra, I can't remember the model number off the top of my head but I'll check later. It fit's perfectly in a DIN sized slot.

Also the Uniden 880, 885 and 980 are all DIN sized as well as the President Mckinley.

Where did you find a factory double din?

This was the OE piece in my Raider, had been the AM/FM radio and a tray.

Mine had the same faceplate, holding the AM/FM radio and the separate cassette deck (an option in '87.)
