Nobody mentioned setting the audio levels?
Set the speaker audio to a very low level and watch the power out on a power meter (you really ought to get one) step it up a level at a time until you get your normal full output and set it there.
Mine is typically around 8 - 15 on all my rigs, anything more will just cause splatter/overdrive yor radio (kind of like screaming into your microphone).

You will want a fan on the PA if you intend to do anything more than an odd QSO.
