    Speakon to 1/4 inch plug?

    Not sure what category to put this in?
    I received a 30 ft 12 gauge cable with a 1/4 inch plug on one end.
    For mixer board to speaker.
    Not sure which of the 4 terminals to use on the Speakon, for the mixer end?
    I don't have anything to plug the cable into, to verify the wiring.
    Any guidance, or schematic would be appreciated

    Thanks,
    T

    It may vary with the specific mixer. What is the make and model?

    I don't know?
    It is supposed to be a universal wiring?
    It is my Son and Grandson's stuff he uses when he plays out.

    The general default wiring would be 1+ to tip and 1- to sleeve.

    Yup. Here's a pic. There are 2-pole, 4-pole, and 8-pole versions of the Speakon connector.
    The 2-pole & 4-pole versions both have 4 pins; on the 2-pole version, pins 2+ and 2- are unused.

    My mind is made up. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    Thanks a bunch!
    I didn't realize it had numbers, until I tore it a part and used my magnifying glass.
    Now I have 1+ to Tip and 1- to Sleeve.
    I will take it to them tomorrow, after we eat supper out.
    We will test it then.
    Thanks again,
    T

    I returned the cord to my Son, that runs the PA, & mixer for my Grandson's band.
    The cord is now fixed, and the above info is correct!
    Thanks again!
