    For the QSC RMX series poweramps, what are your preferred methods (and cable selections) for bridged-mono 2X8ohm cab config?

    Speakon Ch1 to cab 1 daisy chain cab 2?
    Banana (bridge conn) to Speakon (cab 1) daisy chain cab 2?

    Which is better or does it matter? How do you do it?

    If you have a cable with a 4-pin Speakon, use it (make sure the Speakon is wired for bridged operation).

    If you have a cable with a dual banana plug, use it (make sure you plug into the two red terminals).

    If you have both, pick one and use it; set the other one aside.

    Hi Bob, thanks for the reply! How do I verify if a Speakon cable "is wired for bridged operation?"

    Decide what you need, and the contact fellow TBer fretlessrock. He makes instrument and speaker cables by hand to your specs. It is all I use. They are awesome cables, and the price is right.
