    I need some speakon cables, I was wondering if this one was legitimate:

    Hosa SKT 14-AWG Speakon to Speakon Cable at zZounds

    I know 14 guage is good, but is it a 4-pole? The specs don't help much. I was going to make my own via redco but the 20' is cheaper at zzounds (plus I have a hookup for a discount) than ordering everything separately (won't be worth it if it's not 4-pole, however).

    The cable shown has 4-pole connectors. That's what you want. The 2 OFC means two conductors of Oxygen Free Copper (insignificant snake oil). If you need four conductors, then the cables won't work for you. You'd only need that if you're going to do some funky bi-amping with a single cable.

    Two-pole connectors look like this.
