I have CX-4600-T too. Mine gets way hot as well, I had a mod kit installed n it swings 215W peak power now. But the excessive heat is annoying, I think mine does have a fan in it though cause I know I felt air coming out the back before.

Hi there!!

The Connex 4600 Turbo is a very sensitive radio these radios don't work good at all with the stock microphone! The best microphones are the RK-56 and or the Astatic 636L which most people use and you shouldn't get any squeal. And make sure if that you are using an external speaker get it as far away from the radio as you can facing away from the radio so it wont feedback. As far as a Mod kit there are several ways to modify the radio which most are pretty hard and drawn out. but the most easy that used to be used is as simple as a diode placement in the right place which is old school but still works good. You must be very careful as if you are to slightly touch the wrong points the radio could be destroyed and no longer work so caution is to be taken if you don't know what you are doing please don't try it on an expensive radio!! If you want more info on the mod e-mail me

never the less a Modulation kit or modification wont help your Receive it will only help your Transmit signal!!

not really.Many radios come with one built into the meter on the radio. For those with none you will need an external SWR meter. I would recomend a trucker 2000.

turn down your mic gain and that should cure it.

cold solder joint somewhere

The only thing that comes to mind is to make sure the antenna is well grounded and to make sure that where it's been re routed that there are no power wires next or close to the antenna wire which can cause interference which will be more noticeable once you turn on the truck.

Well it does sound like a bad solder joint around your crystal,crystal is what gives you your freq.or channels.All I can do to help you without it being on my bench is to tell you to take the screws out the top of the radio,run the radio and when it quits lightly push on the top of the radio and see if that helps,if so it is a bad joint just find a cb shop that will take the time to find it.These are great radio well worth fixing.

Strange. You shouldn't have a squealing problem with an RK56 noise canceling mic.

Unfortunately there is no way to change the volume of the talkback. Its too loud. The only solution is to turn the mic gain down.

The only reason you need to have talkback on is to check your audio. Make sure the echo is good and what not. After that you really don't need it on. So turn down the mic gain, then check the echo, then turn off the Talkback and turn the gain back up.

The squeal is feedback from the talkback being to loud and being heard by the mic. So the only way to solve it is to lower the volume of the talkback, (Which is not possible in this radio) lowering the mic gain(which lowers your audio level) or turning it off.
