What’s the mounting for speaker head?
On this radio the handheld microphone also contains the speaker. If you want, you can wire an auxiliary speaker. So far I have found the handheld speaker adequate while driving volume wise.

Ohh I was asking for the grab bar bolt mount for handheld microphone.
Thank you though

The grab bar bolt ball mount is from Carolina Metal Masters. The arm is the smallest one that 67 Designs sells and I also used their Magnetic Mic kit. All salty, but robust.

mount is Rugged Radios MT-ANT-JEEP-DS with Low Profile Motorola Cable - You can't see the cable from the exterior. Mounting base unit to right behind glove box (avoid the heater tubes on the left) and then using a RJ45 plug on dash so I can remove headset when not in use. Power comes from Aux Ignition source wire. Fairly easy install but detail takes time.

I also used the Topsy antenna and Mic mount. Used Velcro under the glove box to mount the radio.

I like this location and was thinking about do the same thing. Ended up going under the glove box with Velcro.

Does this setup work well? Any issue with having it inside compared to mounting it outside?
It worked fine for on the trail with other rigs. I moved it to the back, on the tailgate to get it out of the cabin, and have a little taller antenna.
