Building a system WITH a CB.. where to run COAX, interference??

Hey guys,
Tax return is coming soon and its lookin' pretty decent this year with a new house being added to my return, so.. Lots of upgrades to my 08 CCLB.. 6" lift, rims, tires, turbo-back, Spartan, dynomat, new carpet, sub, amp, and head unit. That being said, I realize that the amp wires have to be run down the door sill opposite everything else for the sake of noise/static/engine rev.. But what about the coax wires for my CB antennas? Anyone runnin a system AND a CB?? Just wondering if it matters where I should run my coax and if it will cause interference with the system. The carpet and seats will be totally removed at the point of install.. dynomating entire floorboard. Should I run them up the center? Any input from anyone on where to run my coax and thank you in advanced!

I would love to pull everything out so i can add deadner and change out my carpet color , maybe when its warmer out , Anyway if you have it planned and all your floor board open , layout all your speaker wires and power wires , then do your cb cables away from the others or possibly run out of cab and in frame rail ? the coax would hold up fine to the elements ,then no worries at all ,IMO, took forever for me to type my response ,i keept looking at your sig

That's funny. I wish I coulda had me a babysitter like that! Yea, I never thought of runnin' them under the truck. I already have them runnin through the cab so I didn't even think of redoin'.. I'll have to check that out, but like you said, its gonna have to wait till spring! As much as I love to play in the snow, I'm ready to get to workin' on it. Thanks for the reply!

If your CB has been tuned or turned up, power wise. You will probably run into interference with your stereo. If you have a stock CB and get the cable out of the cab and under the truck, you shouldn't have much of a problem. My CB that I ran bleeds through stock stereo's in the cars next to me... I was probably running a bit more power through mine than most will ever think or want to...

I dont mean to get away from the original question, but does sound deadner really make that big of a difference? Im installing two 12's behind my seats and my buddy said I dont even really need it, but I see a few guys on here that have it...

I don't have an amp on my CB, just stock power. My only upgrade I've done to it is an external speaker and a differant handset so it sounds like I shouldn't have any problem as long as I run it under the cab. The only reason I wanna dynomat it is because I'm a member of an audio wholesale company and its dirt cheap (comparably). Might as well as long as I'm replacing my carpet. As far as making a differance, I've never been in a truck that has it. As far as the dynomat reviews go, it makes a world of differance. I guess we'll see!

You should use rg8x shielded cable instead of the regular rg58 it is shielded much better.
