Default One Speaker, Or TWO?

Just wondering how everybody runs there call. I used to always just run one speaker on my call. Now I've started using the front and back speakers. What are you guys doing?

Thumbs up

Two is better than one, including two decoys as well.

Good question. I use the front speaker and shut the rear off, and use a 15 watt speaker instead.

Why do they have two if you only use one? I have only a spitfire, so I dont know any different.

I learned that my battery life is much greater when I only use the front speaker on the Firestorm so I quit using the rear speaker. It is for lower frequency sounds like bear grows and really not needed for yotes from what I have read. I do enjoy having my batteries last 8 hours rather than 3 or 4.

As you can see in the above picture I use the front speaker and the Foxpro SP-55 external speaker with the rear speaker on my caller shut off. In this picture my FX5 is pointing down into a huge canyon and the SP-55 speaker is pointed up into the same huge canyon.

I use the SP-55 external speaker on every stand. I really like being able to point two speakers in the directions I choose to point them. On many calling stands there will be two directions you want your sounds to go to, like calling off of a ridge top. With two speakers that you can point in any direction you want you don't have to point one speaker and hope both directions get your sounds.
