The microphone (18) of the audio system may be mounted within an accessory module (10), which may be mounted to an interior surface of a vehicle windshield (12). The accessory module (10) provides a fixed orientation of the microphone (18) and is easily installed to the vehicle as it is manufactured or as an aftermarket device.
