Title: Speaker / Dual Input
Post by: KK6UFZ on June 08, 2015, 11:03:35 PM
I have an ICom ID-5100 in my car. I wanted to know if I need to use 2 external speakers, or if there is a speaker or setup that would allow for connecting of both external outputs to a single unit.

Thanks in advance.

On my Kenwood TM-D710 I can set it to use both outputs so left side is on the left, right on the right or put both left and right through a single speaker. Is that not an option on your Icom?

I am not sure. I'll check. I read or heard somewhere ( I don't recall where ) that mobile speakers exist that allow for up to three inputs.

Icom 2720.  I put two small speakers on the dash of my  truck . seperated by about  18 inches.
left dial to left speaker.   then you can tell which side of the radio  broke the squelch with out looking..

The November 2013 issue of QST has an article by Ward Silver, N0AX, in the "Hands-On Radio" column about how to build a dual input into a simple communications speaker.
