Check the wire's insulation for ridges or striping; if the insulation is clear check the color of the wire inside. Then check the source of the wire to determine which polarity is connected to which wire. Once you know the polarity of the wires at the source, it should be easy to determine the polarity of the wire at the destination. The wire closest to the particular banana clip is most likely the one connected to it. If all else fails, you could use an OHM meter.

Trying to connect pyle PADH215 speakers


Pyle's PADH 215 comes with three different types of connections.... Banana Plug, 1/4" and Speakon. You can use any with this speaker. The reason there are two of the 1/4" connections and Speakon connections is that this offers the ability to daisy chain multiple speakers together as long as you watch your ohm load. And no it doesnt matter which connection you plug it in to

Tip

Behringer PMP powered mixer safety issue


This is applicable to the PMP powered mixers regarding an undocumented issue of polarity of speaker connections.

Failure of the "A" side of these units can happen if Speakon to 1/4 inch speaker cables are used and IF the barrel of the 1/4 inch plug becomes grounded. This can happen from careless handling or from intentionally trying to parallel another device from the output which results in a ground being placed on the barrel of the 1/4 inch jack on the "A" side of these mixers. The barrel of a 1/4 inch on the "A" side is the "hot" from the amp.

Upon analyzing the circuitry, these mixers internally invert the audio signal to the "A" side and then the speaker connections reverse the polarity again. Behringer does this to easily allow "bridged" operation of the amplifier.

This creates a hazard that can result in blowing the "A" side amp of these mixers.

If one ONLY uses Speakon connectors everywhere it is NOT a problem, but anytime 1/4 inch plugs are used in the speaker cable system, the hazard exists.

How to connect my JBL JRX 115 speaker to my Yamaha RX V673 receiver


You would use a standard banana plug to either a 1/4 phono or speakon plug. The JBL JRX 115 has both on the back. All the outputs on the Yamaha RX V673 have banana plugs. The channel you plug into would be up to you, there are many choices and they are listed on the back of the unit.

Loud Speakers only have 1/4 inch inputs


Get the Speakons to 1/4" cables. If you're concerned about grounding, make sure the amp is turned off before plugging or unplugging the speakers.

Want to wire a female speakon connector in a plate with 1/4 connector on other end to plug into a rack mounted amp. Plugging onto speaker.


Just so I understand what you are trying to do; you have a power amp that has 1/4" phone output and want to make up a cable of x length to plug into a SpeakOn(c) connector on a speaker. Correct?

I feel like a dork asking this question but how do you connect the amplifier to your mixer. I see that there are places for a banna plug however my mixer will not take a 1/4 banna plug.


In case you don't have one, here is a link to the manual:http://www.peavey.com/assets/literature/manuals/80300573.pdf I don't know if you are using a separate crossover between the mixer and the amp but here is the simplest explanation.I just reread your question and I don't even know whether you have a Peavey amp. Run proper cables from the main output of your mixer to the main inputs of your power amp.They will be 1/4"shielded cables or Balanced XLR cables. Do not use unshielded speaker cables to hook the mixer and the amp together.Run speaker cables from the speaker outputs of the amp to the input jacks of your speakers.Make sure the impedance of your speaker cabinets equals or exceeds the impedance rating marked on your amp. Here is the link to the newer model PV2600 manual:http://www.sweetwater.com/store/media/pv2600_doc_manual.pdf Don't use Speakon cables unless your speaker cabinets are equipped with Speakon input jacks. Banana plugs aren't as solid a connection as the binding posts are.

Is there a common problem with his mixer? mine not working at all.. is there a frequent fuse problem? could you send me the scheme plans? thank you! bruno


Has it worked before? There is a frequent problem caused by arcing between circuit layers in the power amp section. There is a hazard that I wrote a tip about on here regarding speaker hot polarity when using Speakon to 1/4 inch plug cables. If no lights come on, the power supply in it has failed, usually because of the arcing problem. If things light up and effects windows can be changed, plug in headphone and see if anything comes through there.
