Have a question about the speaker output on the new M series radios. I see there is a speaker on the front so assume there is an audio amplifier in the radio. I have a 6600m on order to replace my 6500 and was excited about not using an external amp or powered speakers. But looks I might be wrong.

I just watched a video on the Maestro and noticed the jack on the back has the same label.

So does that mean the 6400/6600m will not output amplified audio?

The "M" series radios will have a 2W internal speaker.  Or you can use the rear powered speaker input for a pair of computer speakers.
