I removed the stand for it and it fits nicely under my Chevy Cobalt's hood.Only gripe about it is the PA mic on mine seems a little quiet compared to the volume of the emergency sounds but that aside a great product that I would definitely reccomend for first time PA installers or anyone looking for a little fun!
