Flex-6400M - Powered speakers output connector

Flex-6400M, reference to the Powered Speaker output connector, is this a fixed audio line level output or does the two front panel volume knobs adjust the line out levels independently (Right/Left) for slices A and B? I do not see any reference to this in the user guide (sections 4.3.2 and 7.5).

Thanks 73s, Thomas NE7X...

On the 6700 the audio output is variable via the software, and when I use my Maestro the audio output jack is variable via the volume control pot, so I would imagine the audio output is variable on the 6400M too.

On the 6500 using SmartSDR you can adjust the master audio level and slice level separately for each slice, as well as a "pan pot" on each slice to position it anywhere between the two speakers. So with 4 slices open, each slice can occupy a distinct position on the "sound stage" between the speakers. Headphone volume is independently adjustable. Again, this is for SmartSDR. I do not know how Flex has implemented this on the "M" series radios.

The output is variable from the client, which is either the controls on front of radio, SmartSDR for Windows, or Maestro. All of which have separate audio controls for slices A and B.

The audio defaults to coming out both left and right speakers for each slice but there are pan controls where you can put one slice in left speaker and other in right speaker.
