Baby steps here, coping with my first-ever amplifier... First question: A phono cable must run from the amplifier's "Relay 1" jack to ... something on the O2. Is it TX OUT 1, TX EN 1, or AMP KEY 1?

The SPE Expert 2K-FL manual states: "RELAY This essential link allows the amplifier to be put in the transmit state. To do that it is necessary that the inner pin of the phono connector is connected to signal ground. This is normally done at the transceiver with either a 'close-on-ground' relay, or with a switching transistor. It is important that the voltages at that terminal do not exceed 12 Vdc. On the transceiver this link is often called SEND or TX GND. Refer to your transceiver manual for more details."

This seems to come first, before dealing with ALC and CAT.
