Here's an odd question - Speakon connections

    Question is:

    If I have one cab that has a speakon connector, and another that has only 1/4 inch - How would you hook that up? (As far as linking two 8ohm cabs = 4ohms) The 410 that has a speakon connector also has a 1/4", but I'd like to use the speakon connection as it's the better connection.

    Thanks

    If the cab has a 1/4 out just piggy back the two cabs together to get your 4 ohms.
    Speakon to speakon, then 1/4 out to 1/4 in on other cab.

    If you want to hook the speakon to a 1/4" plug, connect the +1 terminal on the speakon to the "Tip" (positive) of the 1/4" plug, and the -1 from the speakon to the "Sleeve" (negative) on the 1/4".
