Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you this evening.
Using a speaker on your car or use of a loud hailer is not illegal per se. If it was very loud then potentially you could breach noise ordinances which could result in attention from the Police. People do use megaphones from their cars during election campaigns - you should be fine and so long as it is not really loud then there is little risk of you attracting the attention of the Police. And you should not do this near, for example, the Houses of Parliament. Similarly you cannot use language which is intended to cause offence or distress to the public - to do will be a public order offence.
I do not see a problem but if you are still concerned then contact your local council and also the Police on the 101 number.
