    Started using Bose Companion 2 Series III powered speakers with my new 6400. Beautiful audio with no RF issues at full power.

    Have to second this - reasonable (not cheap) price, good audio quality, and allows for simultaneous connection of radio and computer audio.

    I have also been using the Bose Companion 2 Series II speakers with ferrite chokes on the leads of the 1:1 audio isolator) on my 6700; they sounded pretty good. I experienced the RFI through the speakers when transmitting on 20-M with more than ~40 watts.

    I consulted the powered speaker output specs from the FlexRadio Systems Hardware manual and saw the "10kOhm" 😱 listed on page 14. Did I miss something else here? I believe I have somewhat of a mismatch that may or may not be related to the RFI. I then switched the audio output to "PC Audio", disconnected the speaker cable, and the problem was resolved.
