They are either XLR or / and 1/4" PLUG. Sometimes the connector (jack) accepts both and looks funny, with a center hole and 3 little ones around it. Will work with both....
Be happy.

SOURCE: FRS 2800 Mackie Amplifier Connection Problems

that sounds like an internal connection problem, try getting inside the unit to where the internal wiring is connected, if you have signal coming through well thats a big plus, see if there are any loose wires or if the internal connection is damaged, would probably pay to replace the complete terminal, should be able to pick up XLR connections fairly easily from any electronic spare part dealer, trouble with this type of gear is that the connector is continually being used, so over time they do wear out or suffer damage

SOURCE: Want to wire a female speakon connector in a plate

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?

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.

I have 2 x jbl jrx 115 and 2 x jbl jrx 118s, we set up a power amp to desk and the 118s, into the left hand speakon connection, using a speakon to speakon cable, from the 118s a speakon cable is run out...


In spite of your description it is not quite clear of the connections... In general you should limit the number of speakers connected to an amp output to a maximum of two. I am not sure if you might have more than that in your daisy chain. Let's go over another important thing: are ALL of the amps and the mixer (desk?) powered from the SAME receptacle or power conditioning module? If not, make it so even if you have to run extension cords. The ground bounce of building power at venues can destroy your equipment. The brand/model of the amp(s) and the mixer would be useful to analyzing the problem. It is unlikely the failing battery in a guitar would kill one side of the PA. If the amp is overloaded, the thermal cutout may be disabling part of the amp and the system. Also please verify the RMS capability of your amp. You want the power of the amp to NOT exceed the rating of the speakers USE RMS VALUES... not the fakey "program" or "peak" ratings... those are just advertising gimmiks to show my numbers are bigger than yours... we know that game...

Just bought a Harbinger HX121M 2" Monitor, from Musicians Friend it did not come with a booklet on how to wire into my sound system it has two 1/4" jacks and a strange round plug about the size...


If you don't know how to connect this... well we don't either because you did not tell us what your sound system is. The larger plug is what is known as a "Speakon" connector and is a fairly reliable speaker connection that is used now. For your use you will PROBABLY use either of the 1/4 inch jacks with a cable from the amp that will drive the monitor(s). If you have multiple monitors you will daisy chain them using the 1/4 inch jacks and SPEAKER rated cables creating a string of speakers with input going into one and an output from the same one to the next speaker and so on...USUALLY you will be limited to two speakers per amp output...

Hi i have 2x ev sx300 speakers (speakon) and 2x peavey es 315 (1/4 jack) can i daisy chain the ev's from channel a and the peavey's from channel B (all speakers are 8 ohm). Also should speakon...


Yes, you can put two 8 ohm speakers daisy chain per side MAX. The Speakon should have ONLY two wires on the +1 and -1 terminals unless you are using bridged mode which is NOT applicable in your configuration of speakers. Also be careful is you use any 1/4 inch speaker plugs in the sytem as the SLEEVE, not the TIP of channel A is the "hot" lead... get this to ground someplace and goodbye amp.

New to the mixer world. i have a dicontinued pmp5000. can't get the bridge mode to work


You require a special cable with the Speakon copnnector wired a special way. Refer to your user manual for the correct pin connections to use bridged mode and then put the slide switch in the position closest to the effects display.

Refer to figure 4.6 on page 10 and figure 4.7 showing the connection for bridge mode.

NOTE: you cannot go below 8 ohm speaker on the bridge mode... that USUALLY means a singl speaker of 8 ohms... you CANNOT parallel two 8 ohm speakers.

The single speaker cable will plug into the "B" output connector. Remember bothe the barrel and the tip of the connector if using 1/4 inch plugs is HOT and grounding either inadvertently will fry the amp.

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.
