Hi,

On most mobile communications equipment, it is best that:
1. the power leads are directly wired to the battery terminals;
2. the bracket and radio body are grounded to the chassis of the vehicle;
3. a braided grounding strip be used in addition to the negative power lead; and/or
4. a gutter or trunk lip mounted antenna be used rather than magnetic. Antennas are better made of metal rod (not fiberglass) such as those made by Daiwa, Maldol, Oscar, Hokushin and others. The mount itself should use high quality RG58 coaxial cable such as those by Belden and others.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

to cut down on noise i would hook it directly to the battery. make sure there is a fuse in the power cord first.

THE TALK BACK VOLUME IS CONTROLLED BY THE MIC GAIN, TRY ADJUSTING YOUR TALK BACK VOLUME ABOUT TURNING THE MIC GAIN FROM 12 OCLOCK TO 6 OCLOCK, DO NOT WORRY YOU WILL NOT LOSE ANY OUT BOUND POWER UNLESS YOU TURN THE MIC GAIN BELOW 11 OCLOCK

Every tech. knows and every Connex owner Knows that once a Connex has been peaked and tuned and also had any mods done to it that the stock microphone that comes with it will not work as it should and then you will have bad feed back!! The best solution for this is buy a good Noise canceling microphone!! Such as an RK-56 or an Astatic 636-L Noice canceling microphone!! This usually will correct most of tghe feedback if not all of it!! And it will also let you keep most of your Mic gain turned uo too.

I stopped into a Radio shop and ask them for a power cord for my connex 4600 and he asked me what kind of truck I’m putting this radio in I told him a freightliner he said the connex 4600 Is the wrong...


many trucks have a ground wire in the harness as the cabins are fibre glass or not grounded around the cabin mounts If the radio grounds out through the frame , then there would be no ground for the radio or the aerial wire
to fit this particular may require such a wire in the harness for the radio which it probably doesn't have
As you have been alerted to a problem, it would be advisable to talk with professional radio fitters who work on trucks to get the correct advice before starting on the job
it could save a lot of frustration

Will a connex 4600 turbo cb radio operate cool enough in a dash enclosure?


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.

I have a connex 4600 turbo very good radio!! But the other day I keyed up my mic and the radio shut off but came right back on when let go. Do u know what that might be?


check for any loose power connections.. ground connections.. loose coax.. also make sure vehicle is on so not to drain battery down when TXing. if it was off it may have dropped battery voltage down lower than it should... and turned off.. RX doesn't use hardly any ampres..

Connex 4600 turbo. Poor receive. About 4 mi.


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!!
