    I just got myself a 4x10 EBS cab and am dying to hear it... problem is I'm using a friends Hartke 3500 amp head until I can afford a EBS HD350... now anyone know where I can pick up a speakon head to 1/4in stereo cable converter? or a speakon head one end and 1/4in stereo head on the other end kinda cable?

    you could allways just build one. www.labsystems.com.au tells you what pin is what in one of their amp descriptions or cabs. then just rig it up to a 1/4" jack.

    easy

    I have ordered custom Speakon to 1/4 and Speakon to banana cables from Low Down Sound (www.lowdownsound.com). It's all 12 guage wire with Neutrik ends. Good stuff at very reasonable prices. I am sure that they can find/make you whatever you need.
