    I know this is a dunce question, so be kind.

    Please tell me which speakon speaker cable to purchase to connect my MB200 to my GK 212.
    I have a sepakon to 1/4" which is not working at all,

    So please, brand name, speakon to speakon? Speakon to 1/4"?
    2 pin 4 pin? gauge? male or female! arg! I am easily confused, so just tel me what to get.

    The GK manual refers to a GK cable that doesn't seem to exist.

    I appreciate the help!

    I've got an older GK MB200 which can use either a 1/4" or Speakon connection. You mentioned this is going into a GK 212 cab, but you didn't say which specific model. Does the cab require a Speakon or 1/4" input? There's no biamping with the MB200, so you don't need a "special" Speakon cable like you do with the RB series amps that have biamp ability. Also, if the cab is, say, a NEO 212... there will be a switch to put the cab into either biamp or full range mode... with the MB200, put the switch into full range.

    I have the 212mbe cabinet which has both a speakon and 1/4" jack.
    Thanks for the help!

    I really should learn to make cables.

    Thanks B-String. Perfect!
  5. Just a side note- the newer mb200's don't have the same dual jack. They only work via speakon. It was a bit disappointing to find out after the manual stated otherwise but qué será.
  6. IIRC world certification would no longer allow the dual purpose jack.
