I'm looking for ideas on where to mount the Wouxun KG-1000-G faceplate in my Jeep. (Or the entire unit, depending on how/where). It is JL Wrangler. Right now, I'm looking to mount the base under the passenger seat and just put the faceplate somewhere convenient. Does anyone have a setup they'd like to share? Is the microphone speaker loud enough, or do I want the base mounted where its speaker can help out? I'm going to play with some ideas today, but wanted to see what others have done that they think works well. Suggestions are appreciated!
I have a 2021 Toyota Rav4 and my KG-1000-G GMRS mobile radio main unit is located in the luggage area (rear). I didn’t want to have to drill or glue the head unit to my dashboard but I wanted it in clear view. In the attached pictures below you can see how I used some parts from a cell phone dash mount and the back plate of the KG-1000G head unit to fashion a lean but sturdy mount that attaches to an air conditioner vent. Photo 1: Head unit is in clear view with other OEM mobile interface devices. Note: The handheld mic cable does not perturb the head unit. Very sturdy. Photo 2: Yes. Head unit cable is not discretely tucked away but head unit, head unit cable and mic are easily removed from vent and hidden under a beach towel on passenger seat; out of view while unattended. Photo 3: Rear view of the mount. Photo 4: Left or right holes are reasonable attachment points for ram style phone mount receiver. Countersinking with 1/2 drill bit helps to make original screw lengths usable. Photo 5: Green arrow = existing mounting holes 1 of 6. Red is left hole of 2 closest to center mass balance point. Photo 6: Superglue ( cyanoacrylate) nearly the entire periphery of the ram style phone mount to prevent rotation during assembly. Give it at least an hour to cure. Photo 7: The ram style mount only blocks head unit cable exit hole slightly. Connecter may be still be easily threaded without interference.
