    Just wondering if anyone out here have tried any power mics on the AT-6666? if so is there one that seems to be a winner with this radio? I was thinking of a road devil, as I am running this in my truck and its a bit noisy with tires and general road noise. Any suggestions?

    Cheers!

    The Road Devil is one of the best microphones for picking up your voice and not the noise. My vehicle is very loud inside and it's my #1 choice. It should match up fine with that radio as it's done well on the other CRE, Anytone and Lincoln newer models I've tested it on. If you have problems with a delay on keyup there a resistor mod you can add to fix it (I had that issue with the Road Devil on 2 of the newer style radios).

    When mobile the last thing you want is a power mike as that will just make things worse. You want the Heil HMM Hand Mic. It is a directional mic with good side and rear rejection so it'll reject all the noise.

    I'm using the Palomar SL41. Folks like the sound of the stock electret due to the low end frequency response.
    The SL41 clips a bunch of bottom end response in the stock configuration, but that setting can be changed internally.

    Thanks for the input guys, that Palomar sl41 looks interesting, might give one of those a try, it seems to be more durable then the road devil.

    if you can find a used working 2018 xtreme they were awesome ! has a NC option for mobile (or base) and a great adjustable echo and double talk feature , as well as adjustable tall back . great full tonal quality also , but some like the peircing trebly sound that they believe cuts through skip/static better .

    Since original mic uses electret capsule I would rather replace it with wm61a and adjust modulation %.

    After putting the original element into a different case, and having the frequency response of the radio drastically altered, I'm quite impressed with the frequency response of the original element.
    The acoustic properties of the factory microphone housing don't do the element Justice.
