    dont enclose keep it open this radio has a 2290 pill like a small amplifier built into the radio it will overheat and blow this pill if you enclose it. the radio is not a radio you want tp keep keyed up talking for a long time it will overheat blowing the pill. best thing to do is have a small 1 inch fan installed inside the radio blowing on this pill 2sc2290. this will substationally preserve the life of the final.

I have CX-4600-T too. Mine gets way hot as well, I had a mod kit installed n it swings 215W peak power now. But the excessive heat is annoying, I think mine does have a fan in it though cause I know I felt air coming out the back before.

I would say yes it has a large heatsink. The variable might be the tuning. But if it's amp is not being pushed any harder than factory you will be fine. Nice radio I prefer them over the 4400turbo and the 3600hp it has the board like a 4300 not the 3300s like the fore mentioned.

to cut down on noise i would hook it directly to the battery. make sure there is a fuse in the power cord first.

THE TALK BACK VOLUME IS CONTROLLED BY THE MIC GAIN, TRY ADJUSTING YOUR TALK BACK VOLUME ABOUT TURNING THE MIC GAIN FROM 12 OCLOCK TO 6 OCLOCK, DO NOT WORRY YOU WILL NOT LOSE ANY OUT BOUND POWER UNLESS YOU TURN THE MIC GAIN BELOW 11 OCLOCK

The best way to set it is to get you a radio check, go to channel 19 and ask someone about three to five miles away to give you a radio check, start with your modulation all the way open and go from there.....hope this was helpful...
