It looks like you are trying to run the CB and the commercial radio off of the same antenna at the same time? This I gather is failing. This may be due to the pre-wired antenna having a filter on it to prevent exactly what you are trying to do. If this is the case you may have no choice but to run a separate antenna for your CB (this is the most logical choice), now you can try to find the filter if it is an external filter and remove it and use an antenna matching network to connect the CB to the existing antenna system (next logical, but may void the antenna system warranty). In any event you will either have to run another antenna for the CB or find and remove the present antenna filter.
I hope this helps

The end without a connector was once attached to an antenna. You need a proper antenna in order to use the radio. If you were to buy a new antenna, it will come with a length of cable attached. Even if you were to buy a new antenna, don't expect good performance from the radio unless you get the antenna properly adjusted. Yes, it will work "out of the box", but probably not as good as it could. There is a device called an SWR bridge, it's used to measure the SWR and the user then adjusts the antenna for the lowest reading by trial and error adjustment of the antenna.

The CB radio its self just needs to be connected to power, and the antenna connected. You need to use at least RG-8x coax or you risk it frying from the extra power from the amp.
The radio needs to be attached to the amps input, then the antenna needs to go to the output of the amp.
Then most importantly the antenna must be tuned to lowest SWR. It must not exceed 1.5 and even that is pushing it.
