Can I change a cab's phone jack into a female speakon -connection?

    My rig is coming together, finally. In addition to my Peavey MAX preamp and my Phonic XP-2000 poweramp, I've managed to find a 412TVX that should arrive next week. I decided to go for the Peavey over Glock and EBS and go diving. :)

    I'd like to use a speakon/speakon connection between the Phonic and the 412TVX, so I'm wondering if I can swap the 412TVX 's phone jack with a speakon -connection? I'm no electrician so I don't know if this is possible or even recommended. How should I route the speaker wires into the female speakon in the and is there more into this than meets the eye?

    Muchos thanks,

  2. If your cabinet uses a metal dish to hold the jack, you can replace the dish with one designed to accept a Speakon jack.

    The wiring is a complete no-brainer. Everything is published about how to correctly wire a Speakon.

    Thanks, Bgavin. That's exactly what I wanted to read.
