About Speakon Connector
A speakon connector connects loudspeakers to amplifiers and it is available in both new and used conditions on eBay. They are popular because they use a twisting motion to lock into place, which means that they are far less likely to become disconnected. The chassis receptacle on speakon connectors is airtight. This can be an advantage as there is no chance of an air leak path from the enclosure of the speaker. The actual connector is shielded from touch, which prevents the risk of electrocution. Speakon connectors are able to handle a much higher current than a 0.25-inch phone plug that is also used to connect speakers to amplifiers. Speakon connectors are non-shorting and are available in two, four, and eight contact versions. As the speakon connectors twist into place, they are less likely to suffer from a build-up of corrosion. Speakon connectors are universal and can be used with most models of loudspeakers. Choose a speakon connector and no longer worry about an unreliable connection.
