Speakon Cables

If it's not a bass, and it's not an amp, but it's something you use when you're playing bass, talk about it here.

Speakon Cables

Postby JMSRocketBass » Thu Apr 04, 2013 5:24 pm

I just picked up a DNS-112N. This is my first cab with Speakon connectors. Does anyone have a reccomendation for good cables? My local store stocks Conquest, and I have heard of Monster. Thanks.

Which brand you take doesn't really matter.
Just check the speakons they use, if they are from Neutrik you can assume that it is a quality cable. And the cable should be 2.5mm2
For me there is a Neutrik only rule!
Rock on!

Thanks. Do I need 4 connector or 2 connector if I want to run 2 caninets? On the back of the cabinet it says someting about parallel connections being +1/+2 and -1/-2.

Whether you daisy-chain two cabs, or run one from each side of an amp, a 2 connector will work fine. The four connector is used for more exotic things like bridged mono connections from amps, etc.

Go with genuine Neutrik, they are the standard!

I guess the question was answered 2 years ago.
Btw, the cables you are using are for 4 connector applications.
I know they work, but they cost more then 2 connector, which would be good enough.
