    image.jpeg image.png Right now I'm running ext speaker 3.5mm jack to the mixer, then to an amplifier, then speakers.

    Would it be better to run data out to mixer (would that even send regular audio out, constant level signal)

    Or would it be better to run speaker output of the remote jack?

    For best audio....

    Well you would get rid of any hiss caused by the Audio Amplifier within the rig . . . although I suspect that will always be way lower than any band noise !

    The downside is that the AF Gain on the rig would no longer control the volume . . . which personally I would find a pain !

    There would be no advantage in using the Speaker Output on the Remote socket, as it's the same as on the 3.5mm jack socket . . . and the disadvantage is that it wouldn't cut out the rig's internal speaker.

    I connected pins 3 and 4, I control volume through mixer, benefit, don't have to adjust AF to get the right line level, easier to keep from clipping, also through the mixer I can connect my 2 meter radio, run the HF through left speaker, and 2 meter through right, through the mixer I can adjust highs lows and mids. If I don't want to run it through the mixer, I can turn volume down on mixer, and turn up AF to listen through stock speaker if the need ever arose... A lot of redundancy, but it's ham radio, why not play around with stuff?
