EBS Neutric to 1/4" conversion

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by gimmeagig, Aug 17, 2012.

  1. I have an EBS HD350 and on thing I really hate about it is the fact that you can only use Neutrik speaker cables. I have one and it is even directional, where it reverses the wires somehow.Good luck finding a cable like that and if I ever forgot the cable at home I'd be totally screwed on the gig.
    My question is:
    How hard would it be to convert the amp to 1/4". Has anyone here done that?
    I think there are Neutrik jacks that will also accommodate 1/4" plugs.
    Does anybody here know if that could work?

    If the wires are reversed in your cable, it's a simple, 5-minute task to fix that. Neutrik makes an adapter that enables you to plug a quarter-inch plug into it. They're $6.99 at B&H Photo.

    Wouldn't you be screwed if you forgot a speaker cable of any type at a gig? I guess you could always use an instrument cable. Speakon cables are superior to quarter-inch in many ways, and you'd be better off to have a couple, one in your gig bag and one in your amp case.
