Matching Speaker Recommendation

  • Updated 7 months ago
I per-ordered a Flex-6400M and I understand Flex does not sell an external matching speaker. Does anyone have a recommendation of a matching speaker, size (height) and color?
Thanks, 73s, Thomas NE7X...

BOSE has a great set of speakers called Companion 2 Series III, I believe at less than $100. list price  A good price for an excellent speaker. If you Google them you can find them under $75.00
I will be using them with the long awaited 6400 and use them now with the Maestro

I initially started out using a set of Bose Companion 2 Series II speakers for my 6700.  They worked ok but after awhile I wanted something with better quality so I moved to a set of AudioEngine 5+  speakers.  They're a bit pricey but sound excellent.

Also have the Audio Engine 5+. Excellent sound for both the radio and PC. Zero issues.

I use the AudioEngine 2+. About $250 at Amazon, although I got mine on sale for $200. Excellent sound quality, no RF interference problems whatever. Not as much bass as the 5+, but adequate for voice.

I am using two pair of the Companion 2 Series III speakers, I split the output to each pair.
Easy on the ears, pleasant.
$99 at Newegg locally at Target.

I use Bose Companion 20 speakers with my 6700. I like the external tethered volume/on-off control. It’s more convenient for me with my setup. Never had any RF issues with my 5000a or 6700. No issues at legal limit power either. A bit pricey, but well worth it in my opinion.

Been happy with the Wohler AMP1A-LP Active Nearfield Stereo Speakers I have paired with the 6700 at my home shack. At my Island shack I just have an obsolete battery powered iPod-external speaker I was given.

When possible I’m usually wearing a set of RadioSport headsets though.

I'm going to see how my 6600M internal speaker sounds before investing dollars and desk real estate in external speakers.
