I use a Uniden UH013 radio and connected an external GME SPK04 speaker. Cannot get enough volume out of this speaker. I suspect it is an 8 Ohm speaker and should be a 4 Ohm speaker for this radio. Can anyone confirm this or have another idea please.
Thanks, Dave

Cobradave,
I have a 5w, 4ohm (thats what it says on the back) speaker hooked up as an external speaker for my GME TX 3000 and it works like a beauty.
Cheers,
Bros.

Hi Dave,

The GME SPK04 speaker that you are using is in actual fact an 4ohm speaker.
I suspect it could be the size of the speaker. The GME SPK07 and GME SPK09 are
8 ohm speakers.
Have a look in the book at the specs for the correct ohm's for the radio.
Type the following in your search engine and have a look, gme electrophone speakers.
Good Luck, PandJ

Unfortunately the manual makes no reference to either the radio speaker Ohms or the external speaker Ohms.

Problem solved, Uniden tech. support advised that I should be using an 8 Ohm speaker. Makes no sense to me being of a higher resistance than a 4 Ohm speaker, nevertheless it did solve the problem. Thanks for your help.
