    Hi

    I'm planninng on getting an Aguilar mini-stack, with their Tone Hammer 350 and 2 SL 112s. The TH350 has 1x speakon output (and 1x XLR), the speakers each have 1x speakon and 2x 1/4".

    I know people on TB are using this setup, how do you connect the speakers? Is there a specialized speakon cable that can connect all 3? Or are you using speakon to the first speaker and then 1/4"s? Wonder why they didn't put a second speakon on the cabs - aren't those the preferred connectors for newer cabs?

    Thanks Eric

    But that's my point - you use speakon for the first, and 1/4" for the second? Remember the cab only has one speakon plug...

    I had that setup (well, with a TH500). You can daisy chain the cabs with a quarter inch nuetrik cable.

    With 175 watts max a 1/4 inch jack to the second cab ought to be fine. If it really bothers you, the Traynor TC112 comes with two speakons and costs half as much. :)

    Yep, that's exactly what you do.

    It doesn't bother me, just curious. Thanks for all the input!
