Default Active Grille Shutters Siren Speaker Mounting

Has anyone mounted a siren speaker on a truck with active grille shutters? Where and how did you mount it. I am picking up the new truck tomorrow and just thought about how the shutters may make the speaker install a bit more difficult.

If you look down from the front corner of the drivers side, it looks like there is a platform with a hole in the middle of it that would be a great place to mount something like that.

The shutters fit right in front of it without touching.

Could someone post a pix from above of that area, i am assuming that the area will be the same as on my '09, but there are no shutters like there will be on my '15 Ram
I can mount a speaker anywhere, it will just be for my CB radio for when i am on traffic control

I do have to run a bug screen though, the bugs are bad in the desert

I have that same exact Whelen Siren Speaker. I am unsure how the grille shutters even work. But if I mount it on that same bar, I should be ok?

Yes it will fine, make sure it's not sticking out any from the front of the bar.

Just to clarify, keep the speaker even with the bar the speaker is mounted to?
