Car PA system?

I'm looking to install a PA system in my 1995 Ford Bronco. I'm not exactly a car expert, audio expert, nor a wiring expert, so I'm really not sure what I need.

Just a couple criteria:

- It needs to be loud. Preferably so I can be heard at stop lights when people have their windows closed, or in medium traffic on the highway.

They have those "COGA" ones listed on ebay, but they don't look loud. Look very cheap actually.

- It can't be that hard to install.


If anyone can point me to the items I need (the wires, the speakers, etc), it'd be much appreciated.

I saw that thread, but they don't really cover anything. They don't tell whats needed other than those things, give any hands on experiences, etc.

I'd rather not fly blind.

Go to a truck stop, semi dealer, CB/Ham radio shop, or an old school electronics shop.

They will get you all hooked up.

You will need a CB with PA capabilities. You will need a PA horn. You may need an amplifier for the PA horn. The CB may not have enough power to drive that PA horn to its max SPL.
