Default motor mouth maul mod receive mod cobra 29


Does anyone know what this mod is for the Cobra 29 series. I am talking about the recieve mod where one gets better lows and some highs on the receive end not the transmit end. I know motor mouth has the 148 mods on his website but I can't find anything for the 29s.

WHY ?

In radio you want to shape the audio to mid range.

Probably because someone somewhere said that this was a good thing to do. Even then you are limited to the receiver bandwidth through various chains and filters.

Yep, fast4socal is right... err... morse123, sorry.

I have had SnakeRadiosInc.com install the Cobra 148 HI-FI RX Mod via the MotorMouthMaul website.

I had it done on one of my Cobra 148's and it sounded great. Granted you wont notice a huge difference unless you hook the radio up to better than bad speaker system.
(NO, the little, tiny, single speaker on the radio wont suffice. You will NOT notice a difference whatsoever)
Connect the radio to a decent sounding external speaker, and you will notice the difference.
Also, you will notice it right away once one of those big , quote, unquote "HI-FI" radios out there come into your receive.

Does the radio sound better (once hooked to a proper speaker) ?? Yes
Would I tell everyone I know about it, and to tell them to do it ?? Sure, why not. Because its not something that costs an arm and a leg.

Try it. If you hate it, well, guess what, its easy to remove, and you arent out much $.

Have fun !

Justin, you upgraded a grant LT for me several years ago that I use almost everyday. Great work, thanks. I have a friend of mine who has a 148 that sounds good after this mod and I was told that a mod exists for the 29 series. The 148 seems easier on the ears to listen to. And 522 is right a good external speaker is a must.
