Hi all,

I'm getting a 'popping/cracking' sound from the internal speaker in my Electro on RX, when it's only on about a quarter volume?  The Electro is inexpensive and small, so I shouldn't really expect too much from its audio performance, but it does become wearing on the ears.  As such, I've been looking for a small external speaker to plug into it for home and portable use....any ideas please?

Many thanks

Simon.

Hi 👋
I use a little CRT speaker that seems to work fine from Kiights.
Is the popping noise when you have the squelch on or when it is turned fully open?

Hi Simon

I use a Nokia speaker from an old in car mobile phone kit on my TYT TH-8900, it's small, compact, ideal for portal use and has a good sound quality to it.

I'm sure if you look around the car boot sales or radio rallies you could find 1 dirt cheap or even free.

Ha ha

My first external speaker for CB was made by my dad. He used a speaker from a car and fitted it into a home made metal box (easy done as he was a sheet metal worker)
