The type of jack really doesn't matter and certainly won't affect the sound. The phone plug has been used since the first telephones (hence, the name), well over 100 years ago. It works and that's why it has been used for so long. Also, phone plugs are often cheaper than Speakon, but again, either will work just fine.
