Speaker and Amplifier Wiring Tips
- To prevent possible short circuits, wrap or otherwise insulate exposed loudspeaker cable or cable connectors.
- Do not use connectors that might accidentally tie conductors together when making or breaking the connection (for example, a standard, 1/4-inch stereo phone plug). Use a Neutrik Speakon® instead.
- Never use connectors that could be plugged into AC power sockets. Accidental AC input will be an electrifying experience for your equipment.
- Avoid using connectors with low current-carrying capacity, such as XLRs.
- Avoid amplifier load impedances lower then 4 OHM. For example, wiring three 8 OHM speakers together in a parallel circuit will yeild a 2 OHM impedance. Long speaker cable lengths or high gauge wire will drop the impeadance even lower, sometimes close to a dead short (that's bad).
