Re: Speaker Hook Up

Hi, Most if not all external speakers for 2way radios just uses two wires to 2 pins going to a mono baby phone plug. There are some models/versions that uses proprietary connector but very seldom. The connection is similar to a mono earphone except of course that instead of an earpiece, it uses a speaker/enclosure. Hope this be of some help/information. Post back should you need additional information and pls include brand/model of the radio. Good luck and kind regards.

Having trouble getting sound on my motorola mcs 2000 uhf radio

What kind Motorola radio is it? and I assumed that you mean main unit and control head. If you don't see an internal speaker in the control head then you need a external speaker hooks up to the back of it.
