Hello everyone. Well I recently read some posts here that Speakon connectors were much safer when using high powered amps rather than the standard 1/4 cables. Well I barely purchased an Ampeg SVT 8-10e classic cab and I'm using it with my Hartke 5000. The problem is that the Hartke doesn't seem to have the speakon inputs on the back panel like most ampeg amps do. And well since reading that, I don't want to be using the 1/4's anymore since they aren't really that safe. So I was wondering if theres a cable that has a speakon connection on one side and a 1/4 on the other? Also would this be as safe as using a speakon cable that has both inputs on both sides? One more question, I been running the ampeg at stereo mode which means I been connecting two inputs on it. I notice the back of the ampeg has two speakon connectors, if I get speakons do I connect two different speakons on to both so that I can get the stereo result of are these wired differently that I wouldn't be able to do that? Well thanks everyone ahead of time.
