alright so I am in the need of some help with a Motorola xtl 2500 using remote mount head. I would like to install a hands free mic. searching around on the web I found these two products from Motorola that would do the trick. however on both pictures of the products it just shows two exposed wires. so where do I wire them to.

I don't know if someone has tried this before and it was not worth it, I would think it would be better then having to grab a mic and bring it to your mouth. it would be easy and safer just to use a PTT and mount the mic on the visor or something.. so anyone who knows how to install this please help thanks.

XTL High or Low Power?

You'll need to connect the two wires to the rear accessory connector. Look for the service manual, it'll tell you what J Pins are what. I do not know them off the top of my head.

Sorry, I meant mid power. Look into the accessory plug pinouts for that radio, it should give you all you need to know.
