FTds-1200 manual says "2.5 Watts into 4 ohms with 10% THD"

Looked at some ICOMs and Kenwoods, seems 10% THD is normal and output around 2-2.5 watts

I'm using one "multimedia" computer speaker (Altec Lancing) that was a pair, and it uses the mono 1/8 inch audio plug, which plugs right into the speaker jack on my TS440SAT.  It's not really hifi, you don't really want that else you end up hearing a lot of high audio freq hiss.  Adequate for voice.

Here's 1. WOW now they stopped audio specs!

Less than 10% THD?  This could mean anything.

So what is your favorite speaker for fixed station use?

I've got a pair of Polk Monitor 40 Series 2 plugged into a Y and then into the external speaker jack on the back of my Icom 7700. Sounds great, but that's partly because the 7700 has great audio to begin with.
