Speaker placement is not an issue. As I mentioned in my review, the test was done with an SMH10/SR10 combo on one end, and a two-way radio being held in the hand on the other end. Microphone placement isn't the issue either since SMH10 to SMH10 helmet to helmet works great with plenty of volume, and during my two-way radio test I pushed the microphone right against my lips and the volume was still quite low.
I've used the single pin Motorola Talkabout radios, and standard consumer Midland GMRS/FRS radios. The Midland CB
was the 78-22 handheld CB radios. What was the model number of the Motorola radio you are using?
